Failing her now
Failing her down
Failing her now
Failing her down

FAILING NOW!
FAILING NOW!
FAILING NOW!
FALLING DOWN!

seering into nothing
which is exactly what you want
broken puddles, rusted needles
penetrate me, penetrate
broken puddles, rusted needles
penetrate me

woah lay down
woah lay down

??? sorry
gone for hours, gone for hours
gone away from the gallows
crashing water gone for hours gone for
turning the water on all along the ditches
gone for hours, gone for
gone away from the gallows
gone for hours

LAY DOWN!
virgin mary kisses
Jesus was a liar
GOD! GOD IS DEAD!

SO! why'd you do this ???
virgin mary kisses
jesus was a liar
GOD! GOD!

Failing her now
Failing her down
Failing her now
Failing her down

FAILING NOW!
FAILING NOW!
FAILING NOW!
FALLING DOWN!

soon mistaken
with lies understood
broken puddles rusted needles
penetrate me under the skin
broken bottles, rusted needles
penetrate me fuck me

woah lay down
woah lay down

??? sorry
gone for hours, gone for hours
gone away from the gallows
crashing water gone for hours gone for
turning the water on all along draws the bottom
gone for hours, gone for
gone away from the gallows
gone for...

LAY DOWN!
virgin mary kisses
Jesus was a liar
GOD IS DEAD! GOD IS DEAD!

SO! why'd you do this ???
virgin mary kisses
jesus was a liar
GOD! GOD IS DEAD!

    General CommentI think it's "broken bottles" and not "broken puddles", broken puddles makes no sense to me.
