You've got that kiss of death
And I'm not attracted to alcoholic veins
The way you love your cigarette more than me is driving insane
I hate my eyes for loving you
You're not worth love, so lust is what I'll blame

I am dark and I am scary 'til you think of me at night
The way I make it even colder and send shivers down your spine
The truth is never easy there
It's time, no lies, make up your mind

I've got my lion's den
It's there to put you in
Don't say that you're sick, that you're sick of it
If you can get away, get away with it
Your heart is nothing
Are you ready to give in?
Don't say that you're sick, that you're sick of it
If you can get away, get away with it
You know I can't love you but I'm dying just to keep you alive

Ha!

Your single mind sees truth and happiness with wedding rings of gold
But double vision sees unhappiness while you're alone and getting old
I can't swing your heart from loving something I can't even see
I can live with only oxygen, but oxygen can't live with me

I've got my lion's den
It's there to put you in
Don't say that you're sick, that you're sick of it
If you can get away, get away with it
Your heart is nothing
Are you ready to give in?
Don't say that you're sick, that you're sick of it
If you can get away, get away with it
You know I can't love you but I'm dying just to keep you alive

Oh, now you're desperate
Don't get too desperate to get it wrong
We're so far along
I know you can't handle, my hands can handle it for very long if we're right or wrong
Oh no

I've got my lion's den
It's there to put you in
Don't say that you're sick, that you're sick of it
If you can get away, get away with it
Your heart is nothing
Are you ready to give in?
Don't say that you're sick, that you're sick of it
If you can get away, get away with it

    General Commenti think this song really should have been on twilight. it so goes along with it and i read a comment in one of their blogs, that they wrote it about twilight, i dont know how true that is, but it sounds like a good idea.
