lyrics

I learned my lonely lesson at sixteen:
"The world is full of girls I'll never touch."
the devil is living inside my head,
And these thoughts won't ever stop.

You learned your
pathetic lesson at seventeen:
"The world is full
Of girls you need to fuck."
She wanted to be left alone,
But you crawled inside her womb.

Just give her some line,
Like "the stars shine only for you."
Some girls just grow up lonely.
You know how to dress yourself
Like a man in your coward body.

Dispose of the body that you tore and used.
Her pregnancy's a burden,
but not for you.

Filling the hills with mounting cries,
Only for the one time you need her.
The warm strain of her breath
In your ear.
Oh, time is running out...
Just give her a sound,

She needs to hear you now.
As you pour yourself a drink,
You know how to dress yourself
Like a man in your cowards body.

She wanted to be left alone,
but you crawled into her room.
Just give her some line,
Like "the stars shine only for you."

Some boys just grow up lonely.
Oh you know how to dress yourself
Like a man in your cowards body.

Heavenly greens and blues
Float around your room.
'm running out of time
To take what's unholy mine.
I'm burning, burning for you.

Hellish whites and reds
Keep poring out of your head.
Oh, god, please sympathize
With your child, full of sin,
Before you bury me, banish me.

Crawl into her womb,
(you feel me, you feel me close)
Caress the warm bloody edge.
Leech her nutrients
(cold hands that sever the bones)
While a hanger rips open your head.
Oh, bleed for me, bleed for me dear.

Fluorescent blurry stars
you feel me, you feel me close)
Float inside of her eyes.
Nurses push clear fluids
(cold hands that sever the bones)
Into a washed out skin.
You're dying and dead to me.
Dying and dead to me.
