Help me honey, 'cause I can't see
Love's lungs are blowing tear gas at me
Ambulance sirens are screaming my name
And I'm all hopped up on yesterday

London and Paris, why won't you help me?
My tongue's in the air, my hand's on your knees.
I know you're married, yeah I know your pain,
your finger's been strangled by a cheap promise ring.

I'm in a shadow of doubt,
With a knife pulled out.
x4

At your wedding reception, I started drinking,
To say all the things that I had been thinking.
There's too many songs, and nothing to dance to;
The future is putrid, and useless without you.

Jesus and Mary held a seance for me,
but I wasn't dead, I was just in Philly.
Now I'm on the cover of the magazine,
with my finger on the trigger of everything.

I read the bible, and I understand,
I was born for heaven, in the holy land.
x4

    General Commenthelp me honey, cuz I can't see
    love's lungs are blowing tear gas at me
    ambulance sirens are screaming my name
    and I'm all hopped up on yesterday
    London and Paris, why won't you help me
    my tongue's in the air, my hand's on your knees
    I know you're married, yea I know your pain
    your finger's been strangled by a cheap promise ring
    I'm in a shadow of doubt
    with a knife pulled out
    Thanks to your obsession I started drinking
    to say all the things that I had been thinking
    there's too many songs and nothing to dance to
    the future is putrid, i'm useless without you
    Jesus and Mary held a seance for me
    but I wasn't dead, I was just in Philly
    now I'm on the cover of the magazine
    with my finger on the trigger of everything
    I read the bible and I understand
    I was bored by heaven in the Holy Land
