pull those chains when you turn me out
remind me what this life is all about
because I haven't felt pain in so long I forgot I was alive
sure in this life, the ironies can turn so cruel
but right now I'm at a loss to find one to match you

would you forgive me I'm gifted with this poison pen
silently, lividly waiting, for the ever end

the sting from your faithless kiss still rings on my bloodless lips
if at any other time a love would call you mine
come around and find some time
sure in this life the ironies can turn so true
but the sin beneath my skin means it's more than likely not me but you

    General CommentThe line "The sting from your faithless kiss still rings on my bloodless lips" is the most amazing thing I've ever heard. It gives me goosebumps.

    General CommentI feel like this is about a so called perfect relationship that suddenly goes wrong and the guy finds that being with her was like living in a fantasy. ("I haven't felt pain in so long I forgot I was alive") And the perfect situation he thought he was in was all a lie ("sure in this life the ironies can turn so true").
