in love with yourself
you first met on the rainy steps
where your conscience left
and in the acid rain
shot through your veins
the taste of your lips
and your fingertips bloodied and gripped

the courtship was short
i do report
as your former confidant
he who you were leaning on
it was so hard for me
but not hard to see
how you could fall for yourself

after all, i loved you
after, after all, i loved you

i'd rather die
than let you chew upon my energy
i know you're no friend to me
after all you've done i'm free
and i can finally see
i'd rather die
than let you ever get away with this
you are the antithesis
narcissist, this kiss could be upon my own lips
i'd rather die

yesterday i caught myself
dreaming of the day we lay
in the flux of fate
in denial of
our sick and dying love
as those tiny suns die
in the onyx above

my friends never liked you
now they truly hate you

so jump in a polluted great lake
go fishing for snakes
you have no alibi
your bright and burning lie
you won't convince me the devil's a reasonable guy

cause he loves you
after, after all, he loves you

i'd rather die
than let you chew upon my energy
i know you're no friend to me
after all you've done i'm free
and i can finally see
i'd rather die
than let you ever get away with this
you are the antithesis
narcissist, this kiss could be upon my own lips
i'd rather die

baby you'll be dying soon
deafened by a sonic boom
drowning, dying in the sea
sink beneath the brine for me
you will die and i will live
i have no more love to give
knowing all the wrong steps
to pull you from your sinking cage
baby you'll be dying soon
deafened by a sonic boom
drowning, dying in the sea
sink beneath the brine for me
you will die and i will live
i have no more love to give
knowing all the wrong steps
to pull you from your sinking end

i'd rather die
than let you chew upon my energy
i know you're no friend to me
after all you've done i'm free
and i can finally see
i'd rather die
than let you ever get away with this
you are my antithesis
narcissist, this kiss could be upon my own lips
i'd rather die
i'd rather die
i'd rather die!

    General CommentLooks pretty good so far.
    This is what I got for the electronic voice part, tell me what you think:

    Baby you'll be dying soon
    Deafened by a sonic boom
    Drowning Dying in the Sea
    Sink beneath the ?-? for me
    You will die and I will live
    I have no more love to give
    Knowing all the wrong steps
    to pull you from your sinking cage
    Baby you'll be dying soon
    Deafened by a sonic boom
    Drowning Dying in the Sea
    Sink beneath the ?-? for me
    You will die and I will live
    I have no more love to give
    Knowing all the wrong steps
    to pull you from your sinking end

    General CommentI believe the line you are missing is:
    Sink beneath the brine for me

    brine as in salt water

    General CommentIn Greek mythology, Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who rejected the desperate advances of the nymph Echo. As punishment, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. The song itself seems pretty self explanitory - in my opinion; a selfish, egotistical down right son of a bitch girl who leaves Max for her own benefit.
