there's a scar on my fingertip
where your teeth broke the skin
you always told me
my salt tears
tasted sweeter than sin

leave me tattered...shred the edges...don't come back again

let my thread unwind a little
just until the count of ten
whirl the spindle in your fingers
twirl me right back up again

there's a crack in my window
where my head hit the glass
you always told me
the roar in my head
would eventually pass

leave me tattered...shred the edges...don't come back again

let my thread unwind a little
just until the count of ten
whirl the spindle in your fingers
twirl me right back up again

there's a burning in my skull
somewhere right behind the eyes
you always told me
that the truth
was more bitter than the lies

leave me tattered...shred the edges...don't come back again

let my thread unwind a little
just until the count of ten
whirl the spindle in your fingers
twirl me right back up again

let my thread unwind a little
(you're my pleasure, my addiction)
just until the count of ten
(my cocaine, don't say goodbye)
whirl the spindle in your fingers
(take me back and treat me badly)
twirl me right back up again
(and i promise not to cry)

leave me tattered...shred the edges...please come back again
