LYRICS

In the silence hear me speak
Your mouth is but a cut to me
As I sit upon my holy hands

Show me all your rage
Show me all your hate
Call him every name
In this golden age
Cry until you ache
Yell until he wakes
Sign him every name
In this golden age

I’ve been crying at the sky so long
It’s an act of God
I’ve been crying at the sky so long
It’s an act of God

[Chorus]
On God's green earth
Will it always hurt?
Will you wait and see?
You got through it before
And you will again
You’re coming home with me

Hold you and absolve your sin
Mumma let me crawl back in
Hail Mary Hail me
Fuck him

[Chorus]

Hold you and absolve your sin
Mumma let me crawl back in
Hail Mary Hail me
Mumma let me crawl back in

 

 

Time to pray 

 For a cure

 Why don’t you try again hun

 Time to take 

 Back what’s yours

 She knows this hard life is done

 She knows this hard life 

 

Cause this world’s not made for us

(hit me in the heart like) 

 (get me in the hard life)

 Can we dream another up

(hit me in the heart like) 

 (get me in the hard life)    x2

 

Time to break 

 All the laws

 Why don’t you try again hun

 Time to change

 What’s good and pure

(she is brighter than the sky, darker than the night)

 She knows this hard life is done

 She knows this hard life

 

Cause this world’s not made for us

(hit me in the heart like)

 (get me in the hard life)

Can we dream another up

(hit me in the heart like)

 (get me in the hard life)     x2

She is holding all the world 

 She bleeds golden as a God 

 She is knowing all you cannot

   

Cause this world’s not made for us

(hit me in the heart like) 

 (get me in the hard life)

 Can we dream another up

(hit me in the heart like) 

 (get me in the hard life)     x2

You’re in her way

 Move away

 You’re in her way

 Move away

Glitter for me, oh

Glitter for me

As I lay dying

As you lay dying, oh

And I’m praying for you

And I’m preying on you

And I’m preying on you

 

[Chorus x 2]

Can I be

In your fever dream

Can I be, be

In your fever dream 

 

You don’t glitter, but you want to

You don’t glitter, but I want you to

And I’m praying for you

And I’m preying on you

And I’m praying for you

Preying on you

Preying on you

 

Pretty pretty please me

Pretty pretty please

Can I be, can I be in your fever dream

Can I be, can I be in your fever dream

 

[Chorus x 2]

 

[Post-chorus x 2]

Girl climb girl climb over me 

Boy climb boy climb under me 

Get your pictures in the scene 

Get your pictures in the scene 

Glitter, glitter 

Die holy 

 

Glitter, glitter    x5

 

[Chorus]

I can see you in silk 

I can see you on the back of a carton of milk 

My body doesn’t work

My body is a wound 

You could hit me with a prayer

You could put me on a pew

 

And when we undress 

Yes, it’s a flesh test

Pour the water over my head

I can’t do it now    x2

 

[Pre-chorus]

I’m not ready for you to see me naked 

With all the scars and wires

I’m not ready for you to be complacent 

with all the way I transpire

I think your flaws are disgusting darling 

But your body is mine

I’ll still stay 

I’ll still stay 

The night

 

[Chorus]

I want an android to fuck me

    I want a machine to love me yeah

 I want a robot to tuck me in

I want a robot 

 

We could blaspheme 

We could come clean 

Count the number of the Beast

My body doesn’t close

My body is a wound 

You could take me to the pyre have my soul renewed 

For years I thought I had to rebirth 

For years I thought my house was gonna burn

I can’t do it now    x2

 

[Pre-chorus]


[Chorus x 3]

You want a toy boy

I could be yours

Do you remember what you did?

You want a real doll

I can be yours

Brought me back from the dead

 

Did I build a king?

Did I build a king?

Did I break something?

Did I build a king?

Did I build a king?

Am I another lie?

Am I another Frankenstein?

I watched you die

And come alive

And come alive

 

Real boys don’t get up they get down

Don’t get up they get down

Don’t get up they get down

And you’re a real boy now    x4

 

You’re not the one, you’re not the one 

I am a son, I am a son

You’re not the one, you’re not the one 

Like mother, like son 

 

Am I another lie?

Am I another Frankenstein?

I watched you die

And come alive

 

Real boys don’t get up they get down

don’t get up they get down

don’t get up they get down

And you’re a real boy now    x8

 

Real boys don’t get up they get down

don’t get up they get down



I’m an old dog

My baby you don’t wanna play with me no more

And I will think of you when I'm cold

Maybe we’d be buried in the same hole    x3

 

Even when I’ve gone

You have my love

When we’re at opposite ends of the earth

The same sky 

Is falling apart

 

[Chorus] 

Lost my baby that day

Yes I know I did

I went crazy that day

Yes I know I did

 

Maybe we'd be buried in the same hole    x2

 

Even when I've gone

You have my love

When we're at opposite ends of the earth

 The same sky

 Is falling apart

 

[Chorus x 2]

 

 Is it true, you don't need me anymore?

 Is it true, you've found someone else to cry over?

 Is it true, you don't need me anymore?

 Is it true, you've found someone else to cry over?

To cry over
