Lover lover let’s pretend
We’re born as innocents
Cast into the world
With apple eyes
To wish wish dangerous
My dear delirious
To try and leave
The rest of us behind
Shot full of diamonds
And a million years
The disappointed disappear
Like they were never here
Kiss kiss all of this
The hiss that we had missed
And understand what can’t be understood
Sear those thoughts of me
Alone and unhappy
I never liked me anyway
If by chance
Or circumstance
We should fail
Don’t be so sad
Shot full of diamonds
And a million years
The disappointed disappear
Like they were never here
In a dream
We are connected
Siamese twins
At the wrist
And then I knew we’d been forsaken
Expelled from paradise
I can’t believe them
When they say that it’s alright
Words can’t define what I feel inside
Who needs them?
Caught with this virus of my mind
I give in to my disease, of my needs
To my disease, of my needs
She really loves to break
Her dad says its OK
She really loves to break
And give it all away
Her ma says she’s afraid
What more can she fake
She really needs to break
And give herself away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
We really love the USA

Quiet
I am sleeping
In here
We need a little hope
For years
I’ve been sleeping
Helpless
Couldn’t tell a soul
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Silent
Metal mercies
Castrate
Boys to the bone
Jesus
Are you listening?
Up there
To anyone at all
We are the fossils
The relics of our time
We mutilate the meanings
So they’re easy to deny
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I don’t trust you
I can’t hear you
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Behind me
The grace of falling snow
Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face
Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out
Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings
Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you
Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who’s left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you

I spin off and lose my head

Throwing stray a spark instead

Gather strength down in my heel

And dig it in the world I peel

Way down deep within my heart

Lies a soul that’s torn apart

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

Don’t want to live in your misery

I don’t live – I inhale

Sprinkle all my kisses on your head

Stars full of wishes fill our beds

She said, “I’m dead”

All this pain smothers me

Like a bomb that you can’t see

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t live

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You’ve traveled very far
Just to see you I’ll come around
When I’m down
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream (on some versions, “scream”)
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?
Yesterday the sky was you
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same
I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will
Goodbye

Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don’t want them anymore
And in their eyes I was alive
A fool’s disguise
Take me away from you
Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I’d ever been
When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and revive
It’s alright honey
It’s alright, yeah
Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away
Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it’s true
Life’s a bummer
When you’re a hummer
Life’s a drag
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Do you feel
Love is real?

Freak out
And give in
Doesn’t matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody’s fool this year
‘Cause they know
Who is righteous, What is bold
So I’m told
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Hipsters unite
Come align for the big fight to rock for you
But beware
All those angels with their wings glued on
‘Cause deep down
We are frightened and we’re scared
If you don’t stare
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Tell me all of your secrets
Cannot help but believe this is true
Tell me all of your secrets
I know, I know, I know,
Should have listened when I was told
Who wants honey
As long as there is some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out

Bleed in your own light
Dream of your own life
I miss me
I miss everything I’ll never be
And on, and on
I torch my soul to show
The world that I am pure
Deep inside my heart
No more lies
A crown of horns
An image formed deformed
The mark I’ve borne
A mark of scorn to you
Consume my love, devour my hate
Only powers my escape
The moon is out, the stars invite
I think I’ll leave tonight
So soon I’ll find myself alone
To relax and fade away
Do you know what’s coming down
Do you know I couldn’t stay free?
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free free
Free of those voices inside me
I shall be free
I shall be free

Nothing left to say
And all I’ve left to do
Is run away
From you
And she led me on, down
With secrets I can’t keep
Close your eyes and sleep
Don’t wait up for me
Hush now don’t you speak
To me
Wrapped my hurt in you
And took my shelter in that pain
The opiate of blame
Is your broken heart, your heart
So now I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
I’ll betray my tears
To anyone caught in our ruse of fools
One last kiss for me…yeah
One last kiss good night
Didn’t want to lose you once again
Didn’t want to be your friend
Fulfilled a promise made of tin
And crawled back to you
I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
I’ll betray myself
To anyone, lost, anyone but you
So let the sadness come again
On that you can depend on me, yeah
Until the bitter, bitter end of the world, yeah
When god sleeps in bliss
And I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
And I’ll betray myself
To anyone

I am one as you are three
Try to find messiah in your trinity
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something
In your city to burn, you’ll burn
Am I as I seem?
I’m down
Down, so down
Time is right for a guiding light
Try to turn to reasons in your bitter life
Your city to burn

Try to look for something
In your city to burn, you’ll burn

Additional Info:

After the song, there's a clip from a TV talk show or something:

"Now it's, uh, kind of strange, and, uh, kinda hard for me to talk about, but I thought maybe you could help- um, when we start getting physical, rather than having intercourse, he ends up just masturbating himself, and I end up feeling very alienated and unsatisfied, and it's really come between us-"


Feel it
Break your bones
Mr. Jones
Taste me
As I bleed
Taste my need
And spaceboy I’ve missed you
Spinning round my head
And any way you choose me
You’ll break instead
Watch me
Death defy
Defile my life
I don’t need
I don’t care
Please
I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home
‘Cause when a lover aches
That’s when a lover breaks
I want to go home
I want to go home
And spaceboy they’ll kill me
Before I’m dead and gone
And any way you choose me
It won’t be wrong
And anyway you choose me
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong

(Over you, like an angel)
Bury me in love
Bury me in love
Shared your kisses
Shame your heart
Buried me and it hurts
I love my sister so (chain, unchain)
She don’t smother me (chain, unchain, unchain)
I played the spades I know (unchain)
I’m a jack of all trades
Would you bury me
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
She waits, bury me
She waits, bury me

And they all want you to change
And they all want you to change
And the sad sad sad
All the sad faces drown
In this town
Where are we going?
And they all want you to change
Where are we going?
And they all want you to change
Where are we going?
