if you were to ask me how long i've been running for
i don't even think that i could answer
i just don't know anymore
i'm a sucker for weakness and the blood covering my floor
is all that i have left to remind me of the girls I've loved before

believe me when i say that i love you, angel, because i do
but accidents will happen ... and they do
believe me when i say that i love you, angel, because i do
but accidents will happen ... and they do

courtesy came calling with her best friend common sense
unaware that malice and manipulation had taken up residence
caring came to the crime scene
but bloodlust beat them back
so apathy could laugh with his compadres
and anger could attack
anger could attack

believe me when i say that i love you, angel, because i do
but accidents will happen ... and they do
believe me when i say that i love you, angel, because i do
but accidents will happen ... and they do

hey, honey, hold my hand and hope for heaven
because i just can't help myself
even angels end up burned and buried in my backyard
and you, you're just like everyone else

hey, honey, hold my hand and hope for heaven
because i just can't help myself
even angels end up burned and buried in my backyard
and you, you're just like everyone else

hey, honey, hold my hand and hope for heaven
because i just can't help myself
even angels end up burned and buried in my backyard
and you, you're just like everyone else

    General CommentFIrst of all, great song. Could be about killing a lover or could be about something else. While I'm not to clear on the meaning, what caught my attention was the great alliteration. Did anyone else notice this?

    Courtesy, Came, Calling, Common
    Malice, Manipulation
    Caring, Came, Crime
    But, Bloodlust, Beat, Back
    Apathy, Anger, Attack
    Hey, Honey, Hold, Hand, Hope, Heaven
    Burned, Buried, Backyard

    Amazing use of alliteration. BNO is great.

    General CommentI have this one memorized.

    It's about the fact that he kills his lovers.
    I think he may be talking about being bipolar.
