from Kiss + Swallow by IAMX

I get up and I only wanna go to sleep
I wake up to cheap tricks living plays on me
She says my confusion shows as the holes in me
I say I’m too thirsty to think, need a drink
’cause I lost my soul to the needle, to the ink

And she knows how she kills me with her Polaroids

I know that you wish I never had been born
And I guess that you’ll give me more to cry for
She says kids are cruel to be but cool to fear
I say apart from the shit that I’m in, I am lead
I can get disconnected, I can get so dead

And she knows how she kills me with her Polaroids


from Kiss + Swallow, released July 13, 2004
