My mama said to me,
"Darling, you've got your daddy's temper. So you better watch your mouth
cause it'll lead you to the fire."

I...I...I...!

...never did learn how to listen and I can't hold my tongue. Now all the smoke is clearing from the shots ringing out.

And the water from the rivers will flow into the ocean like my heart pumps the blood to the tips of my fingers.

Here's to the night...to my coma and my brand new set of eyes.

A corpse for a bride is dead in my hospital bed.
I don't need to write it down.
I don't need to spell it out.
Thank God these walls can't talk
cause they could go on for days.

You don't know where I've been.
You don't know what I've seen!

    General CommentI think the lyrics would more accurately be:

    Oh yeah!

    My mama said to me, "Darling,
    you've got your daddy's temper.
    So you better
    watch your mouth
    cause it'll lead you
    to the fire."

    I! I! I!
    I! I! I!
    I! I! I!
    I! I! I!...

    ...never
    did learn how to listen
    and I can't
    hold my tongue.

    Now all the smoke
    is clearing
    from the shots ringing out.

    All the smoke
    is clearing
    from the shots ringing out

    And the water
    from the rivers
    will flood into the ocean
    Like my heart
    pumps the blood
    to the tips of my fingers.

    To the tip of my finger

    Here's to the night...
    to my coma and my brand new set of eyes.

    A corpse for a bride
    Is dead
    In my hospital bed.

    I don't need to write it down.
    I don't need to spell it out.
    Thank God these walls can't talk
    'Cause they could go on for days.

    You don't know where I've been. (I! I! I!)
    You don't know what I've seen! (I! I! I!)
    You don't know where I've been. (I! I! I!)
    You don't know what I've seen! (I! I! I!)
