Lyrics

we kiss with tongue and cheek
and burn the witches in our beds
wrap vacant stakes in sheets
accuse monogamy instead
I tried to catch the beat
and do the dance of marionette
can't groove to my heartbeat
since rhythm stops when you are dead
they say there's one way to feel
I will
taxi drive me to the end
let the meter run into the digits I can't spend
then you'll drive me to the edge
I'll stand upon the precipice and jump to pay my debt
so take some hair from me
that's what the dog that bit me said
a process we'll repeat
until it's bald and I am dead
I played it by the book
and soon became illiterate
the words that I mistook
negate everything I have read
they say it's quite easy to tell someone you love them
but it's a feat to mean it
taxi drive me to the end
let the meter run into the digits I can't spend
then you'll drive me to the edge
I'll stand upon the precipice and jump to pay my debt
be my driver to the end
crash into my rigid back, you'll see that I don't bend
now we're standing on the edge
so push me off the precipice and prove that you're my friend
they say there's just one way
it's kill or be killed
if you show me the way
I will
if love is like a cancer
kill kill
then sex is just a pill
will will
well we're making love to kill ourselves
kill kill
and we're fucking just to heal
and if love is like a cancer
and your sex is like a pill
well we're making love to kill ourselves
and we're fucking just to heal
and your love is like a cancer
and your sex is just a pill
I'll keep making love to kill myself
and keep fucking just to heal
they say that god is love
and love it always wins
except for a hopeless damned romantic
with a crush on deadly sins
now I'm closing both my eyes
to see your point of you
it's a picture perfect paradox
for camera shy taboo

In the summer of 2002 this thing we call "letlive." began in a garage in a small suburb of Los Angeles with one goal in mind. Above all else, letlive. was meant to be an idea not an outfit. This idea took its roots in honesty, humility, and finding an ironic strength in vulnerability. This is how it all began and it must end in the same fashion.
