When Christopher slinks home at night
He cuts himself by candlelight
Once for sorrow, twice for pity
So much temptation in this city
With each slice, red tears escape
from the cuts the razor makes
One for love and two for pain
The Lamb of God washed down the drain

And how do you exorcise your demons?
Do you watch them flow from your body with each cut?
With each tear, you repair what others have left to die
No more tears ‘cause now you’ve found a new way to cry

Amanda’s draped across the bar
She smiles nicotine and tar
Mascara married to her tears
Her face much older than her years
She finds a new love every night
It’s one that fades with each dawn’s light
Life is pain and love can sting
and promises don’t mean a thing

And how does it feel to wake up every morning?
The mask so tight it draws the breath from your life
Never naked or ugly again, you feel fine
No more tears cause now you’ve found a new way to cry
