lay me down on a filthy bed, tell me it's all in my head
wash my hands with gasoline, light a match and flee the scene
pour the wine with arsenic, tell me it's the real shit
serve that soup with mercury, smile and say it's good for me

do it once, do it again, tell me you're my real friend
rewrite the rules, rig the game, tell me i'm the one to blame
put it in, pull it out, smile while i scream and shout
let it go while i bleed, smile and say it's good for me

in the dark, sing to me with your haunting melody
like a broken record on repeat, repetitive and incomplete
hold it too close and it'll choke into a heap of ash and smoke
or watch it die in your hands, don't try too hard to understand

they got mary, soon they'll be comin' to get me
on a cold night, in the moonlight, they're callin' my name
eyes closed, i know how all of this shit is bound to go
they're gonna put us all in chains

don't wear your heart on your sleeve
don't ever share what you believe
don't ever dare to disagree
don't wear your heart on your sleeve
