Like the pills in your hand, I'll never let you down
And like the bugs in your bed, under my skin now
Devouring all that's left of me
Devouring all that's left of me

In the palm of your hand, a resting place
All the guilt in the land resting on me
And we're crushing beneath it, falling beside ourselves
And we're wishing to break this neverending spell

Send us back to hell, we've had our fill of heaven
Give us back our sins dead no one could sell them.
Keep us from their hearts, saving us like ashes
Cut us down with dust, never trust in anything we're told

Like the pills in your hand, I'll never let you down
And like the bugs in your bed, under my skin now
They're devouring all that's left of me
Yeah they're devouring all that's left of me

Send us back to hell, we've had our fill of heaven
Give us back our sins dead no one could sell them
Keep us from their hearts, saving us like ashes
Cut us down with dust, never trust in anything we're told.

    General CommentHow can you call a band as talented and original as alkaline trio overrated? firstly they get nowhere near as much respect as they deserve, not in England anyway....their lyrics are some of the best poetry i have ever read and Matt has to be on of the best songwriters/poets in a long time....the music is so fucking original too....their older stuff is such an unclassifiable breed of dark punk-pop that sounded nothing like the mainstream shit being poured out and the new stuff is just pure musical genius that i cannot begin to put in a catagory...its not punk its just brilliant music and to call a band as original as them overrated is just plain ignorant....i can accept people not liking them but to call them overrated is just stupid
