you opened your eyes and you killed a museum of fallen stars
you killed it for fun, you killed for fun with your eyes
you should've known that you had such sad eyes

and when you killed that museum
and laughed in the shadows with your friend the wolf
well you threw back some beers
you toasted the devil himself
he should've known that you can't see too well

and when you threw back your hands
and you covered your face with a carousel
well it was too dark to tell
but i figured you looked like a fool
you should've known that you can't fool yourself

and when i saw you again
you were in a museum of pornography
you looked in my eyes
you told me your hands were so raw
i should've know you were above the law

you opened your mouth
and you killed a museum of innocence
there were bras on the floor
there were jock-straps behind every door
i think we all know what you're looking for

and when you killed that museum
and you swallowed your weight in regret
my suspicions where proved
by the hoof-prints found outside your door
i think we all know what he put them for

and when you threw back your head
and you swallowed a hogshead of tooth decay
well you couldn't be swayed
your resolve left us all so amazed
we all knew that it would never fade

and when i saw you again
you were in a museum of fallen leaves
well it was quite the museum
it was the finest museum i could find
you should've seen the way the crowd went wild

well i cried and i cried all night
till the little birds go oooooo they go ooooo

why'd you lie?
tell me why'd you have to lie to me like that?
don't you know it makes me cry baby
and i stay up all night
and i never get no sleep
till the little birds go ooooooo they go ooooo

well i sold my soul for a cigarette
and i want it back but i always forget
and i go oooooo and i always go ooooooo

and i sold my eyes for a peice of roast beef
i want em back but i can not see
i feel so dumb, i feel such a fool
i got nothin in my head but paper and glue
and i go oooooo and i go ooooooo
