Fuck, again, I wanna be a man
But I love all the sin and the cigarette ash
Black lips, amen, I wanna be a saint
But I love all the darkness; lights just burn my skin

Let me in, let me in
I can make 'em understand
I can be your favorite lover
Under all the blood and cement
I know can be the sun

I can see the li-i-i-i-i-ights, li-i-i-i-i-ights
Flickerin' above your sanctuary
Gui-i-i-i-i-ide, gui-i-i-i-i-ide
Children of the night into the vultures' den

Fluorescent white light beams
Through window frames to lie to mankind
Deaf, dumb and blind all fall in line
In time to worship the sun

But it's cold outside, won't you come in?

What is the measure of a man
Who used to believe in something?
Used to believe I'd change everything
But I can't remember why
Now I can't find the time
To light this fire behind my eyes

Oh, what's to show
A million and one love lost souls?
You wanted control but we both know
(We'll thrive where you can't see the lights)

Drug obsessed, six o'clock stimulants
I need my medication; pump it in my veins, doctor
Am I an actor? (Alright) My stage fallin' apart
But I can't see the sun, I can feel my heart

Oh, what's to show
A million and one love lost souls?
You wanted control but we both know
(We'll thrive where you can't see the lights)

Never been alive a day in my life (We're dancin' underground)
Tried to find God but we're runnin' outta time (We're dancin' underground)
Never really thought that I could trust you (We're dancin' underground)
Come to find out that's all that I can do

I want to die, spill my life force, watch it drain out of my veins
I'm to blame, pain derived from my self-righteous poetry
I want to die, spill my life force, watch it drain out of my veins
I'm to blame, pain derived from my self-righteous poetry

What is the measure of a ma-man
Who used to believe in something?
Used to believe I'd change-cha-change
I can't remember why
Now I can't find the ti-ti-time
Fire behind my eyes
