It's a night life that gets them off
So desperately they wait for the excuse of love

We live like vampires
And we, we, we love like killers
We all die like infants
And we trust like mirrors

It's the smoke and the drinks
And the smiles that it brings
It's the pain and the sex disguised as innocence

Slow suicide
Like it or not, it's what we do
Slow suicide
Like it or not, it's what we do

It's the love of guilt that forms the habit
Of being dramatically over-dramatic

We live like vampires
And we, we, we love like killers
We all die like infants
And we trust like mirrors

It's the smoke and the drinks
And the smiles that it brings
It's the pain and the sex disguised as innocence

It's the smoke and the drinks
(It's a desperate place for desperate people)
And the smiles that it brings
(To find a place for desperate heroes)
It's the pain and the sex
(A desperate place for desperate...)
Disguised as innocence
(And they sing)

Slow suicide
Like it or not, it's what we do
Slow suicide
Like it or not, it's what we do (x2)

The songs they sing are in the key of the illusion of pain
And it's irony
In the midst of lust and dropping names
The drugs, they numb and they keep us sane (x2)

Slow suicide
Like it or not, it's what we do
Slow suicide
Like it or not, it's what we do (x2)

    General Commentthis song seems to be about drug use among teens, but thats just how i read it

    and if i'm not mistaken, it should be "We live like vampires"

    really good song though, using drugs is a slow suicide when you really think about it, but then again, wouldn't everything in life be?
