HEROINE (5:27)

SO, YOU THINK YOU’RE REALLY SMART
YOU THINK YOU’RE BREAKING HEARTS
YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING TO LIVE FOREVER
SOON, YOU SAY YOU’LL MAKE A CHART
YOU SAY YOU’LL MAKE A START
YOU SAY NOW, BUT YOUR HEART SAYS NEVER
NOW, YOU HOPE TO FIND YOUR WAY
YOU HOPE THAT IT’S TODAY
YOU HOPE TO END THIS PLAY OF SORROW
SEW, A NEEDLE PULLING THREAD
A NEEDLE FOR YOUR HEAD
THE NEED’LL HAVE YOU DEAD TOMMORROW

CHORUS

YOU, YOU’RE WASTED IN YOUR MIND, YOU’RE WASTING PRECIOUS TIME
YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING TO LIVE FOREVER
YOU, THERE’S SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW, YOU’VE GOT NO PLACE TO GO
YOU’VE GOT TO GET YOURSELF TOGETHER NOW


SEE YOURSELF LOSE TRACK OF TIME, SEE MIRROR CRACKING LINES
YOUR FACE BECAME THE SIGN OF AGING
HEAR THE SONGS YOU USED TO SING, THE DISTANT VOICES RING
THE DISTANT MEMORIES STING, ENRAGING
FEEL THE WAY YOU USED TO FEEL, THE WAY YOU ONCE WERE REAL
BEFORE THIS PIN OF STEEL RETAUGHT YOU
SMELL THE MATTED DIRTY HAIR, THE SICKLY STOMACH AIR
THIS CAN’T BE YOU, I SWEAR IT’S NOT TRUE

CHORUS

TASTE THE FLOOD BENEATH YOUR TONGUE, THE WARMTH THAT KEEPS YOU NUMB
THE BLOOD THAT’S FLOWING FROM YOUR FOUNTAIN
ONCE, A HEROINE OF MINE, A HEROINE SUBLIME
NO HEROINE CAN CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN

CHORUS
