Methadone

Love like a needle full of methadone

Potent but not real, left you wanting more

 

Lipstick track marks bleeding wet

Like Montagues and Capulets

For us child the stars refuse to shine

Oh why for us, child, do the stars refuse to shine?

 

Somewhere strung out on the lam

We wound up back here again

Like unstable chemicals

Combining only to explode

 

What will it take for you to notice?

I am a heart on fire, and all the world's a fuse

So don’t get close

Trouble and the worth

Am I better off on my own?

 

Contaminated, quarantined then left alone

A shipment refused, address unknown

A damaged goods they soon forget

The choking dust that we got left

For us all, the stars refuse to shine

 

Tap the vein and light the match

We burn like stars before the crash

But for you there’s still a chance

Just let go

 

What will it take for you to notice?

I am a heart on fire, and all the world's a fuse

So don’t get close

Trouble and the worth

I’m better off on my own

On my own

 

Now there’s nowhere to run

And yeah there’s nowhere to hide

There’s nothing under the sun

We haven’t already tried

 

What will it take for you to notice?

I am a hand grenade, pin already pulled so don’t let go

As we chase the sun my shadow slows us down

And without me along, you’re better off and I know

You’re better off and I know

And I know
