Oh, Honeybear, Honeybear, Honeybear
Mascara, blood, ash and cum
On the Rorschach sheets where we make love

Honeybear, Honeybear, Honeybear
Fuck the world, damn straight malaise
It may be just us who feel this way

But don't ever doubt this: my steadfast conviction
My love, you're the one I wanna watch the ship go down with
The future can't be real, I barely know how long a moment is
Unless we're naked, getting high on the mattress
While the global market crashes
As debt fills the streets with garden-variety oblivious

You grab my hand and say in I-told-you-so voice
"It's just how we expected"

Everything is doomed
And nothing will be spared
But I love you, Honeybear
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Honeybear, Honeybear, Honeybear
Ooh, ooh, ooh

You're bent over the altar and the neighbors are complaining
That the misanthropes next door are probably conceiving a Damien
Don't they see the darkness rising? Good luck fingering oblivion
We're getting out now while we can
You're welcome, boys, have the last of the smokes and chicken
Just one Cadillac will do to get us out to where we're going

I brought my mother's depression
You've got your father's scorn and a wayward aunt's schizophrenia

But everything is fine
Don't give into despair
'Cause I love you, Honeybear
Ooh, oh
Honeybear, Honeybear, Honeybear
Oh, oh, oh
