You had a lion's head and a dragon's tongue that ran blue whenever it bled You had a gun in your eyes and your pockets full of notes to plagiarise I keep on thinking if I sleep too long will I wake up and find the walls have flown away and if I'm drinking in a song and I'm sober in bed, am I a hypocrite? and if I sleep too long will you steal my teeth while I'm asleep and will I wake up with a mouthful of blood and a fistful of hair? You had a face full of knives and a thousand little men to take over our lives ... You kept a girl on the run until she found out what your brothers and sisters had become I keep on thinking if I sleep too long will I wake up and find the walls have flown away and if I'm drinking in a song and I'm sober in bed, am I a hypocrite? and if I sleep too long will you steal my teeth while I'm asleep and will I wake up with a mouthful of blood and a fistful of hair?

Wasted and tired I dropped myself in the tide and you were a ballerina. Sixteen days late, I found myself in the parade with everyone on the scene. And we huddled down alleys, decked out in black TV screens, held hands in the rain, and talked about all the killings we'd seen I broke all my strings I can't play while everyone sings they just wouldn't care So I sat and watched your twisted animatronic corpse dancing for spare change. There's a party down your street let's go there, see what we find some pretty blonde thing you can touch and maybe more, let's see if she minds You're dramatic again, even through this corroded old lense sing me another line

New York is making me ill with every taxi that passes me by with every night I spend on your floor with every subway station closed. I found a map, on the floor of the plane that brought me over to you. I've been following it for hours now, and still all the buildings leer down at me. There's a fever in my blood from injections they told me to have There's a bandage on my side from the papercuts you scratched onto me. I'm spending my days drinking in public from a brown paper bag mistake I sit in parks, and alleys, and streets and wait for the taxis to take me away again.

It's not the sky, over your head, it's just my love for you. It's not a knife I stabbed you with, it's just my love for you. It's not the end of everything, it's just my love for you.
