Far from this return
I fall out of grace
I dig my hole
I put the dead bodies in every day
You can't take this life
Take it back from me
I live my whole life baby
I live this everyday

You see your life in my hands
Your love is covered
In blood and piss
Clean me off
I'm so dirty babe

It ain't about money
And it ain't for the
Dark red that you go
You see your heart in my hands
Let go

And go so far
And bury them
In a hole so deep

Back from this return
I fall out of grace
I dig this hole that I
Put dead bodies in every day
I see your life in my hands
And now it's covered
In blood and piss
Clean me off
I'm so dirty babe

It ain't for money, baby, baby
I just do it for fame
It's for the glory, baby
And blood stains

And goes so far
And buries them
So hard and deep
We'll both go

I tried...I tried...
And we'll all dance along
To the tune of your death
We'll laugh again
We'll cry again
And it's better off this way

Well never again
And never again
They gave us two shots
To the back of the head
And we're all dead now
Well never again
And never again
They gave us two shots
To the back of the head
And we're all dead now

I tried...
One more night...
I tried...
I tried...I tried

I tried...I tried...I tried...I tried...

And we'll love again
We'll laugh again
We'll cry again
And we'll dance again

And it's better off this way
So much better off this way
And I know in your heart
That you wanted to die!

Well never again
And never again
They gave us two shots through
The back of our heads
And we're all dead now...

    General Comment"your life/love is covered in blood and piss."

    "i see your life in my hands,your love is covered in blood and piss, clean me up i'm so diry babe.
    it ain't the money, baby baby i just do it for fame"

    i'm not 100% either, but thats what it sounded like to me.

    either way, when i got to this song on the cd, i was really suprised. but its cool though its almost like an extra song.

    General CommentThis really confused me when i listened to the live c.d but then i realised it was the demo, anyway the version they put on the album came out better in my opinion, i don't really think the lyrics to this version fit in time with the instrumental and they are sort of unclear.

    General CommentI don’t agree with these lyrics at all… unfortunately. But I have idea what else he might say. Except for every time you write “lie” I’m almost sure it’s “life”. To me it doesn’t sound like he’s saying “your love is comforting me up at this” and “I did my all motherfuckin vein , almost every day”. Anyway thanks for uploading the lyrics, I’ve been looking for them for ages.

    General CommentI dont really like this version, i definetly prefer the one on 'three cheers'... the lyrics dont fit to the music and they dont work as well as the others

    I was kinda surpirsed when i heard this, i got really confused and then i realised it was a demo... but still it was wierd...

    Oh yeah these lyrics dont seem right to me but i dont have any suggestions other than whats been said so i guess until someone finds the lyrics these are good enough... thanks for posting these ones i've wanted them since i heard the song

    General CommentThe version on the album goes:

    Stay out of the light
    Or the photograph that I gave you
    You can say a prayer if you need to
    Or just get in line & I'll grieve you.
    Can I meet you alone?
    Another night and I'll see you.
    Another night and I'll be you.
    Some other way to continue
    To hide my face.

    Another knife in my hands,
    A stain that never comes off the sheets -
    Clean me off
    I'm so dirty babe!
    The kind of dirty where the water never cleans off the clothes
    I keep a book of the names and those
    Only go so far 'til you bury them
    So deep and down we go

    Touched by angels, though I fall out of grace
    I did it all so maybe I'd live this every day.

    Another knife in my hands
    A stainb that never comes off the sheets -
    Clean me off
    I'm so dirty babe!
    It ain't the money and it sure as hell ain't just for the fame..
    It's for the bodies I claim and lose

    Only go so far 'til you bury them
    So deep and down we go

    Down

    And down we go
    And down we go
    And down we go
    And we all fall down

    I tried
    I tried

    And we'll all dance alone to the tune of your death
    We'll love again, we'll laugh again
    And it's better off this way

    And never again, and never again
    They gave us two shots to the back of the head
    And we're all dead now.

    Well never again, and never again
    They gave us two shots to the back of the head
    And we're all dead now.

    Well I tried
    One more night
    One more night
    well I'm laughin' out, cryin' out, laughin' out loud
    I tried, well I tried, well I tried,
    'Cause I tried, but I lied
    I lied

    I tried
    I tried
    I tried

    And we'll love again, we'll laugh again
    We'll cry again and we'll dance again
    And it's better off this way
    So much better off this way
    I can't clean the blood off the sheets in my bed

    And never again, and never again
    They gave us two shots to the back of the head
    And we're all dead now
