There's a face lined in black mascara
And it haunts me, I'm up all night
It's all over you
Yes, it's all over you

Sitting down she is fixed on the ceiling
Like some cat with a stood up tail
She's all over you
Yes, she's all over you

So pick me up and take me away
I know that life gets better than this
Why did you go and leave me this way
I'm just a trashed up, tangled up mess
I'm all over you
So take me away
Take me away
Take me away

As she laughs into whiskey glasses
Broken screams pop the hand in the face (?)
Yes, it's hard to tell the angel of hell

Falling forward in numb sensation
Tiny pieces flipped away and go crashing down
They project no sound

So pick me up and take me away
I know that life gets better than this
Why did you go and leave me this way
I'm just a trashed up, tangled mess
I'm all over you
So take me away
Take me away
Take me away

Over there like a fly on the window
Circling frantically to the open skies
She remains locked inside

So pick me up and take me away
I know that life gets better than this
Why did you go and leave me this way
I'm just a trashed up, tangled up mess
I'm all over you
So take me away
Take me away
Take me away

There's a knock on the door in the morning
A tall man has come for you
He's all over you
Yes, it's all over you

    General CommentI couldn't find lyrics for this song anywhere... so I just tried to type them out as I listened to it. Some of the parts weren't very clear though. Hope it's mostly correct. It's a kick ass song though. Love this band.
