Show me yours and I'll show you mine

Dial tone and ringing
Connect and on
I'm on the hotline and talking now
So shut your mouth

I know just what I want
And that someone's you
Paint brush stroking in the sinful art of lust
The picture becomes clear

No time to think twice
No time for regret
And one thing's for sure
This one's for me

I'm falling in love
With the thrill of the kill
And at this Masquerade
You're the clown and criminal

I will play the devil
In your land of make believe
Tell me how the view is
Down there on your knees
As you beg and plead

Knee deep in the hot wax
All stuck in the quicksand
Sexual slave, you've learned your lessons well

Don't pause for applause
My bloody valentine
With a slip of the tongue
I'm on the inside

Snap the neck of self control
And it breaks like prison bread
Straightjacket seduction
It whispers like the voice in your ear

You've opened up the flood gates
And I'm drowning in your love
You've opened up the flood gates
And I'm drowning in your love

It's too late to turn back

I'm falling in love
With the thrill of the kill
And at this Masquerade
You're the clown and criminal

I will play the devil
In your land of make believe
Tell me how the view is
Down there on your knees
On your knees

Adultery

I have become a danger to myself
A danger to myself
Now that I'm in the palm of your hand
The palm of your hand

I have betrayed my family
Betrayed my family
Committing a sin, adultery
And I can't stop now
I can't stop now

I'm falling in love
With the thrill of the kill
And at this Masquerade
You're the clown and criminal

I will play the devil
In your land of make believe
Tell me how the view is
Down there on your knees
On your knees

    General CommentPart of the album concept where the person can't control their adultery or killing urges.

    A great album, and a very creepy yet beautifully constructed song.
