Steal strips of flesh from my frame,
Lie them out to drown in the rain.
If you feel me you will feel my pain
But you never knew how (never knew)

I sang for the stars hidden
In your paled-out scars
And you hid your dreams (from me)
In rumours of monstrosity

And you hid and you hid and you hid
(dance in the rain, steal my pain)

And I don't know why I do what I do
I'm losing myself in the dignity of you
(who am I?) Yell like a storm –
Thoughts take form but you shatter (so easily now)

Shattered glass, splattered blood
'Cause, God, it's a long way down
And crushed underfoot you (we) sparkle
Diamond crumbs and crystal splinters (we're fragmented)

I sang for the stars (scars, scars)
But you gave me the sun instead
Sparkling from the barrel of your gun
My blood blazed yellow in ecstasy
Mimicking the pain in me (in us)

And you cannibalise your drowning hopes
Choke them in liquor and cancerous smokes
But tobacco tastes so nice on your tongue
And who knew hell could be such fun?

Steal strips of skin from my wrist
Scrape them from me with acidic kiss
Torture me in the darkness of bliss
Then abandon me to agony (only yours will do)

You hid yourself and you hid and you hid
(dance in the rain, steal my pain)

So I sang for the stars hidden
In your paled-out scars
And you hid your dreams (from me)
(But through death gave us eternity)

And we sing of our scars
Hiding in stardust (dust)
A twisted reality, no sense of finality
We can taste our immortality
(but it's smoke to the world)

(give us eternity, sing for the stars)
