i can't believe how smart you think you are. do you even know i'm right behind you and that i saw you stumble home? yeah, i was there when you took that breath...unaware that it would be your last one. i'm sure that you would have said goodbye and i know that everyone will miss you. no, i'm not sorry for what i've done. close your eyes i'm gonna make you famous. and i never got to know you and i never knew your name. yeah, life's not fair...but you know it has a strange way of working out. my god, it's beautiful the way the crimson syrup drains away...the art in the knife as it lathers red milk...you are my canvas.
