Intro

(Spoken, male, sermon style)

"We don't get what we want,

We get what we need."

Music builds up to Choir:

Malae daemones narrant fabulam

Et necant tuam sanctum spiritum.

Salvum tuam cor,

Salvum tuam cor.

(Spoken, male, panting)

"I love you.

I need you badly."

Verse 1

You got just what you wanted-

A whore who'd willingly shed

Her virtues for the one man

Who promised to hold her hand.

[Ego amant ne vanidicum?

Ego amant ne falsissimum?]

Verse 2

You got just what you wanted-

You got inside my frail head

And preyed on my hopes and fears,

Pretending to wipe my tears.

[Ego amant ne vanidicum?

Ego amant ne falsissimum?]

Chorus

You said, "We don't get what we want, we get what we need."

You prayed, for solace of my soul, and left me to bleed.

In breaking me you've succeeded, I see, you're a curse.

Is ruthless death what I needed, tell me, Universe?

[Choir:

Malae daemones narrant fabulam

Et necant tuam sanctum spiritum.

Salvum tuam cor,

Salvum tuam cor.]

Verse 3

Is this what I deserve for

Loving you, beast, more and more

With every day that faded,

Into a past so jaded?

[Ego amant cor sine veritate.

Meam cor est sine felicitate.]

Verse 4

When you left me there to die, [Die!]

And I looked you in the eye, [Lies!]

A coldness beyond compare

Was embossed in your cruel stare.

[Ego amant cor sine veritate.

Meam cor est sine felicitate.]

Chorus

You said, "We don't get what we want, we get what we need."

You prayed, for solace of my soul, and left me to bleed.

In breaking me you've succeeded, I see, you're a curse.

Is ruthless death what I needed, tell me, Universe?

[Choir:

Malae daemones narrant fabulam

Et necant tuam sanctum spiritum.

Salvum tuam cor,

Salvum tuam cor.]

Bridge:

Male, spoken:

We don't get what we want,

We get what we need.

And I need

Male growl:

YOU.

Kneel before me, you disposable little slut,

Worship my shadow, beg me for more pain and hurt.

[Daemone nunciat victoriam.

Daemone sanguinat cordis tuam.]

Shred your heart to pieces to feed my lust,

Kneel before me, fallen angel, you must.

[Daemone nunciat victoriam.

Daemone sanguinat cordis tuam.]

Female, spoken:

As I lay there, savouring my last breath,

I realized (sigh), I've been dead all along.

Chorus:

You said, "We don't get what we want, we get what we need." [Malae daemones narrant fabulam]

Chorus: (Vocals only, music fading)

You said, "We don't get what we want, we get what we need."

You prayed, for solace of my soul, and left me to bleed.

Is ruthless death what I needed, tell me, Universe?
