Laying in a bed in a room in Texas
Propped up reading Miller's 'Sexus'
Scotch on the side and a pentagram ashtray
Girls on the floor from last night's roleplay

Smoke a cigarette, risking cancer
That's just me, I'm a bit of a chancer
A knock on the door says it's time to go
Time to get this road on the show...

Everybody loves their guilty pleasures
Turn a blind eye to all the dangers
All of us are looking for hidden treasures
Everybody loves the company of strangers

Desire and fear are both the same
You feel pride but you feel shame
You want the world to know your name
You love the world but you wish it pain

I smell blood in an era of mad men
Knew I should have stayed wrapped up in Bedlam
I look into the mirror and I see my father
There's wire in the blood so I can't go farther

Gave up once but never again
My enemies are turning into friends
Be your own messiah and save yourself
Because you can't rely on nobody else

Everybody loves their guilty pleasures
Turn a blind eye to all the dangers
All of us are looking for hidden treasures
Everybody loves the company of strangers

Desire and fear are both the same
You feel pride but you feel shame
You want the world to know your name
You love the world but you wish it pain

Murdering some time in New Orleans
The city of scabs and voodoo dreams
I rode the dark fantastic
Felt like she was made of plastic

Cut off my nose to spite my face
The catch was better than the chase
When I am King I’ll make her Queen
And I will give her everything

Everybody loves their guilty pleasures
Turn a blind eye to all the dangers
All of us are looking for hidden treasures
Everybody loves the company of strangers

Everybody loves their guilty pleasures
Turn a blind eye to all the dangers
All of us are looking for hidden treasures
Everybody loves the company of strangers...
