Oh, I bled on the bed
From a wound in my head,
On the night before I sent this.

Welling with dread
from the things that were said
in the boardroom that left me defenseless.

And though you weren't there
I could still feel your stare,
And your voice, it rang cold and contemptuous.

So forgive me this morning
If should fall, worn,
In the arms of The Lethal Temptress.

At a nightclub engagement
We sang on the stage,
In a voice that was broken and tuneless.

Still, it's better to work
Than to beg like a jerk,
For the kind of things we all find useless.

And Hell hath no fury,
And dear, I'm not worried.
I will see to my eternal penance.

Just one more glass of gin
Before I fall back in
to the arms of The Lethal Temptress.

(guitar solo)

So you frightened the ghost town
And ground them all down,
Until one day you reached a consensus.

And I know from your verse
You put America first,
And all others you simply beat senseless.

But worship like this
Is to honor the fist,
And to conjure what's cruel and licentious.

And I don't know what's fair,
And I really don't care,
In the arms of The Lethal Temptress.

(harmonica solo)

Well, I won't place a bet,
But I knew when we met,
That one day we'd come to regret this.

And that what once was love
Can turn quickly enough
Into something so hard and contentious.

But Hell hath no fury
And death is no jury,
Our love's ended before I commenced this.

But for one final sin
You won't see me again,
In the arms of The Lethal Temptress.

But for one final sin
You won't see me again
In the arms of The Lethal Temptress
