lyrics

I picked the wrong one again
Yeah I could kill for the end
S-something's gonna have to break but for sweet good-goodness sake
There's so much more I can take
I'll suck it down til it bleeds
And while I fail to succeed
Oh there'll be plenty of time for Brother Sisyphus to climb
Inside my my my my my my my my my mind
Audience or not, I'm gonna sing my song, it say "no one ever wants to live that long"
All the other pretty boys are so serene
You know that nothing worth having ever stays so clean
Keep her wanting more and she will be your slave
I don't dig love, I just dig my grave
But oh! She fakes it so well, just like me
Between us we could make a fabulous tragedy
Cuz they say pain's the quicker ticket to the depth you crave
Don't you know? Yes I knew
And I wasted all my time again, yes I did
And I could trace it and I won't find a thing except
"So you're with me now, are you with me now, you're not with me now"
Love-lover I have to admit there's a thrill in watching it go down as deep as it can
Oh make me more than a man, s-so much more I can stand
Oh how could you never see there's got to be agony
Tortured, bound to the floor and I'm still ready for more
Oh lover, if you're gonna get reckless, what are you waiting for?
Frankie had a dream she'd leave us all behind
She had the mind of a child and a body so fine
She said "if everyone's a star, then I want to be space"
Oh baby maybe should have kept those words behind her face
Now she makes a living in a ninth ward dive
The good news is she's only nauseous when she's alive
But oh! She fakes it so well, just like me
All of the happiness I get from glimpses of her misery
Cuz there's no better victory than watching someone writhe
Don't you know? Yes I knew
And I wasted all my time again, yes I did
And I could trace it and I won't find a thing except
"So you're with me now, are you with me now, you're not with me now"
Oh, how time flies, and lately come to realize
I've been singing this same song for much too long
Yes, much too much i'd rather do and while I've learned a thing or two
If this decade should pass to you here's the best that I can offer you:
Boy, whatever you do, don't you let 'em see you cry
And whatever you do, don't you let 'em see you cry
I erased it and it came back again, yes it did
So let's face it, it's time I find that I don't mind
That I don't mind that I don't mind that I wasted all my time all my time
All my time won't come back again
It's time I find that I don't mind if you're with me now, if they're with me now
They're not with me now
