Girls that glitter love the dark
We lace it through our bitter, black little hearts
And then we feign surprise when we see
That those we've loved to love
Have seeped into our poisoned blood

Girls that glitter deceive death
We thread ourselves through innocent flesh
And then we feign surprise when we see
That those we've loved to waste they seem to be erased

Knit it through, thread it, sew it to unsuspecting flesh
They won't regret it, or so they say
And those you have loved have snagged on your thorny veins
But they don't regret it, or so you say

Girls that glitter desecrate a kiss
We break the code of happiness
And then we feign surprise when we see
That those we've loved have loved to leave

Girls that glitter defile hope
We think that love is just tightening that sad little rope
And then we open our eyes and we see
Through the gash of a fluttering eyelash

We see love trying desperately to flee
But you don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear
You don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear

Knit it through, capture it
And stitch it to your brittle little heart
At least that way love can't tear it apart
Knit it through, sew it to
They won't regret you
...And if they do?

But the thing that girls know best
Is that glitter covers all the ugliness
And they know one thing above all the rest:
Sparkle covers evilness
Shimmer covers all the mess
Glitter covers darkness
And then came the moment when the swarm of bees drowned

    General CommentThis song is about how sick love can become. How we spread this unhealthy love like a disease. We take this love that should be pure and we corrupt it. How we don't even give ourselves a chance for it to blossom into something wonderful because in a way, we sabotage it, driving those very people we love, away... we don't love by respect, we love by control. by making them bitter, tired, weak we hope they won't be able to leave us. but they will... and hate us for them leaving with this new view of love. Yet, she doesn't realize that she's the one who's wrong. She's doesn't understand what she's doing wrong. Why she can't hold on to the ones she loves. Beautiful song.
