You cut off all of your fingers,
trade them in for dollar bills.
Cake on some more make-up to
cover up all those lines,
wake up and stop shaking

Don't you want some of this?
Don't you need some of this?

You take but cannot be given
You ride but cannot be ridden.
Pinch this tiny heart of mine
wrap it up in soiled twine.
You never read what you've written.
I'll be your lover, I'll be forever
I'll be tomorrow, I am anything when i'm high

Don't you want some of this?
Don't you need some of this?

You shove your hair down my throat
I feel your fingers in me,
tear this bitter fruit to mess
and wrap it in your soiled dress.
Now you must spit out the seeds


All dried up and tied up forever
All fucked up and dead to the world...

    General CommentI'm pretty certian Rasputina never covered this song.
    However, it is a great Marilyn Manson song. :]

    General CommentThey never officially recorded it, but they did perform it live. You can find an old bootleg of it here […].

    General CommentI love Rasputina but I didn't like what they did to one of my favorite Manson songs. I did like what they did to Tournequet but not so much this one. It seems to happy?
