Song Lyrics


I`m coming down and look you in the eye

Where you gonna go with no place to die?

My water breaks like turpentine

I sit pretty like a sacrifice

Now you get watch

You get to watch

Now you get to watch me die

Bless my body and bless my soul

Wrap it in turpentine

See you standing Whatever for

All abandoned like an old wh*re

Who really knows where the ruby rides

I see all the sick reflections in your ruby eyes

And I know all you devils by your christian names

And I know all you b*tches by your christian names

Now I get to watch

Now I get to watch

Now I get to watch you die

Bless my body and bless my soul

Wrap it in turpentine

Acrid, syphilic coteries

Put your head up over your legs

Count backwards from infinity

and say oh oh woah

Eat the rose and the dirt it grows in

I dont even know what hole that`s supposed to go in

Now you`re mad and you snubbing me

It stinks like metal in the junkie tree

Now I get to watch

I get to watch

I get to watch me die

Bless my body and bless my soul

Wrap it in turpentine

Acrid, syphilic coteries

Put your legs up over your head

I better walk to your suicide

cause your fear may hold down suicide

I cease to exist on the Christmas list

I cease to exist in the old disease

I lie right down baby give it to me

I lie right down

Nowhere to walk backwards forwards

Nowhere to walk backwards forwards

Nowhere to walk...black was gold

nowhere...
