Deadwood

[whispered]
[Handcuffed in the present tense,
Variations on your violence,
Mind games and pretty girls,
A cracked song in the universe.
I think it’s time that I showed you what I’m made of.
I’m afraid there is much to be afraid of.
I kill the fire so I don’t get burned.
Kill the fire and you won’t get burned.]

Deadwood, if you care to listen,
Looks the same, but there’s something missing –
It wears me out.
Stripped bare, I’m the same old savage.
How in God’s name did we ever manage?
It’s not enough.

Look me in the eye.
I’m about to dive.
Can you live your life
Without me?

I don’t need you anymore.
I can’t use you anymore.
Killing the fire
And you kill my desire.
I don’t need you anymore.

Loud and clear, but you still don’t get it.
I call you up and then I regret it –
It gets me down.
You want the truth, but you look right through it.
Deadwood, but you won’t run to it.
It’s such a shame.

Look me in the eye.
I’m about to dive.
Can you live your life
Without me?

I don’t need you anymore.
I can’t use you anymore.
Killing the fire
And you kill my desire.
I don’t need you anymore.

[First comes love,
Then comes marriage,
Then comes baby in a golden carriage.
First comes love,
Then comes marriage,
Then comes baby in a golden carriage.]

I don’t need you anymore.
I can’t use you anymore.

Killing the fire
And you kill my desire.
Killing the fire
And you kill my desire.

Killing the fire
[Symptomatic of what we’ve become.]
And you kill my desire.
[I used to think you were the only one.]
Killing the fire
[Symptomatic of what we’ve become.]
And you kill my desire.
[I used to think you were the only one.]

[First comes love.]
Killing the fire.
[The only one.]
[Then comes marriage.]
And you kill the desire
[The only one.]
[Then comes baby in a golden carriage.]
Killing the fire
[The only one]
[Then comes loneliness.]
And you kill my desire.
[The only one.]

[First comes love.]
[Then comes marriage.]
[The only one.]
[Then comes baby in a golden carriage.]
[The only one.]
[The only one.]
[Then comes loneliness.]
