She broke both her legs hitting the ground,
I stood over her screaming.
Turned my head to the siren sound,
And my back to her bleeding.

Tell my girl that I'm sorry,
Now there's so many locks on my door.
Seven women came, seven bodies slain, still they called out for more.
'cause these voices they talk to me daily, and they get wild when they're ignored.
Oh I'm lost here, it's a cost dear, it's something we can't afford.

Oh when the lights go down and the clanging walls shut me away.
I know, I know.
We built this, I killed him, 'cause he got in the way.

I came to bed about half ten,
I could see that he'd been there.
From the cum on your dress and the mess of your hair,
I knew then that I'd kill him.
So I walked slowly down to my kitchen.
I took a knife from the second drawer.
I barreled on down to the beerhall and
There I called his name just to be sure.
Though he pleaded with me to be patient,
Still I stuck him like a two bit whore.
Oh he bled out, red it gushed out and sprayed up against the toilet door.

Oh when the lights go down and the clanging walls shut me away.
I know, I know.
We built this, I killed him, 'cause he got in the way.

Now it's been fourteen years since I cut him down,
Fourteen more till I see her.
And I think of the times when she loosened her gown,
And the whispers that I heard.
So tell my girl that I miss her,
And I didn't mean to do her harm.
Cowering in my cell when the ringing bells,
Sing loud the alarm.
Because the borderline's close now to breaching and
I'm tired of these calls.
The cutters in my hand and the other man
Is slipping down the call block wall.
'cause I'm tossed and I'm tired and I'm beaten,
And I'm sick of all these chores,
Oh I'm lost here, it's a cost dear,
It's something we could never afford.

Oh when the lights go down and the clanging walls shut me away.
I know, I know.
We built this, I killed him, 'cause he got in the way.
