Lyrics

oh, the violence
the ocean beckons with it’s gaze
pulling me beneath the waves
their fury is second to none
oh the violence, it’s clawing at my burning skin
filling my heart with it’s sin, human
reason is washed away

am I the first to be fooled by your dirty little trick?
I guess I should have seen this coming, I will not forget

I’m the one who has to swallow water,
that’s what I get for chasing after you
you should be hanging by your neck,
swinging there silently

I can’t stop the bleeding
tell me that you want me if you need me,
tell me that you love me if you want me
your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
telling me you want me, do you want me?
telling me you want me, do you love me?

it is quite clear you despise me by
showing your face here
and you never even told me why you disappeared

I’m the one who has to swallow water,
that’s what I get for chasing after you
you should be hanging by your neck,
swinging there silently

I can’t stop the bleeding
tell me that you want me if you need me,
tell me that you love me if you want me
your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
telling me you want me, do you want me?
telling me you want me, do you love me?

a bone chilling cry erupts
I’ve seen those eyes but not that smile
I’ve seen those eyes but not that sinister smile
I’ve seen those eyes but not that blank stare
I’ve seen those eyes but not that stare
the tides of sin are stained with blood

I can’t stop the bleeding
tell me that you want me if you need me,
tell me that you love me if you want me
your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
telling me you want me, do you want me?
telling me you want me, do you love me?

you will be sorry when he spills the
blood from your throat!
you’ll be torn limb from limb, tramp!
there will be hell to pay!
