I think my friend said “I hear footsteps”
I wore my black and white dress to the birthday massacre, birthday massacre, birthday
I wore my black and white dress

I think my friend said “stick it in the back of her head”
I think my friend said “two of them are sisters”
“I am a murder tramp, birthday boy”, I think I said
“I'm gonna bash them in, bash them in”, I think he said

Then we wished them all a happy birthday
We kissed them all goodnight
Now he chases me to my room, chases me to my room, chases me in my black and red dress

I think my friend said “don't forget the video”
I think my friend said “don't forget to smile”
“You're a murder tramp, murder tramp” I think he said
“You're a murder boy, birthday boy” I think I said

I think my friend said “stick it in the back of her head”
I think my friend said “two of them are sisters”
“I am a murder tramp, birthday boy”, I think I said
“I'm gonna bash them in, bash them in”, I think he said

I think my friend said “don't forget the video”
I think my friend said “don't forget to smile”
“You're a murder tramp, murder tramp” I think he said
“You're a murder boy, birthday boy” I think I said

They're getting ugly
They're a horror show
And now we're laughing because they'll never know
That they have everything
We give them all of our own and they tell us they're sick and they're all alone

They make fools of us together
But we always think of them
All their laughing and their talking and their wasting of our time
And it always hurts to see them now
That everything is different
We don't like to see their eyes cause they will never look the same

They shut the door
We fell far behind
We try forgiveness
But they cross the line
And now the moment has passed and we can't rewind
We are dead long before we run out of time

They make fools of us together
But we always think of them
All their laughing and their talking and their wasting of our time
And it always hurts to see them now
That everything is different
We don't like to see their eyes cause they will never look the same

They make fools of us together
But we always think of them
All their laughing and their talking and their wasting of our time
And it always hurts to see them now
That everything is different
We don't like to see their eyes cause they will never look the same

. . .


We don't know what time we'll be there
But we won't show up till later
It will all look so much nicer
After all of us arrive

Promise me to pass the time
Dance with me on plastic tears
Kiss me We won't feel alone
Till morning when we disappear

Though we all want to be noticed
There's no need for competition
Cause there's just no way of knowing
Where the camera points tonight

Promise me to pass the time
Dance with me on plastic tears
Kiss me We won't feel alone
Till morning when we disappear

We don't listen to each other
Cause we're all too busy talking
We'll tell lies about each other
Cause the truth is such a bore
With the threat of dawn approaching
And our interest quickly fading
We will stumble home together
As we did the night before

Promise me to pass the time
Dance with me on plastic tears
Kiss me. We won't feel alone
Till morning when we disappear

. . .


You know you're too young for your age
I feel kind of sorry for you
Cause it's such a shame
You won't be laughing when I'm dead

Under stairs and no one cares I'm dead
And that is where I'll wait for you

Nothing here has changed
Maybe you should go and find
Someone else to blame
Cause you are gonna be sorry when I'm dead

Under stairs and no one cares I'm dead
And that is where I'll wait for you

. . .


Tighten your tie, boy
You're something to die for
But don't hold your breath now
You're just killing time
Tonight you can dream, boy
Imagine a whisper
If you can keep secrets
Then I'll tell you mine

Remember a promise you couldn't hold on to
Though it brings me to tears now
I need you to know
Look in my eyes, boy
Nothing like yours now
It seems that a lifetime
Is passing us by

So open your eyes...

This is forever but it won't last long
This is a memory that fades away in neverending
In the death of all
That's long been said and done before
We'll wish that we were something more

Stop wasting time, boy
You're late all your life, boy
They won't have the patience
For someone like you
Your memory's fading
I'll love you forever
I'll try to remember
I'll try to hold on

You're standing alone, boy
Waiting for dreams, boy
Waiting for something
To make them come true
Don't ever leave, boy
I'd miss you too much, boy
I'll never forget you
As long as I'm here

. . .


Next phase, next craze, next nothing new
Got the pretty boy beat him up black and blue
Broke the sissy boy's teeny toy heart in two
Turned him into a video kid like you

I know you're just pretending death
There's no window for mistakes
I know you see right through me
There's no promise left to break

Shot the pretty boy killed him on commodore
Need a new game, need a new something more
Got a new face got a new way to score
Got a voice like something I've heard before

The message misleading
We're lying, we're cheating
We're only repeating
The motions preceding

. . .


He watches her while she is sleeping
He wonders if he could watch her forever
He wants to know every secret she keeps
He wants to know what it is that keeps them together
He doesn't know what is real anymore
He tries to read the reflections from her eyes
He never stopped to think about love and direction
He only took the truth from his paranoid lies

Sometimes the beauty starts to die
When it's over
Torture yourself by asking why
But it's over

She watches him as he is leaving
She waits all night 'til he comes home
She fabricates another reason to stay
She's always so afraid of being alone
She doesn't know what is real anymore
She tries to read the reflections from his eyes
She never stopped to think about love and direction
She only took the truth from her paranoid lies

Sometimes the beauty starts to die
When it's over
Torture yourself by asking why
But it's over

. . .


Time is the promise
It turns and tells them what to do
It makes them dishonest
They let the suspicion kill the truth

Broken Heart, Broken Mind
When you let me in
Did you not know where I had been?

And love's what they wasted
A lie that makes their dreams come true
They're hiding their faces
Their smiles can break the heart in two

Broken Heart, Broken Mind
When you let me in
Did you not know where I had been?

. . .


Her fabulous invention, what strange imagination shown
Her glorious intentions, a sea of doubt beneath her own
It said "you're not the first to dream this, little girl
You know it's never happened once in this world
It never crossed my mind that one so young could hope to find a power greater than my own"

She never did what they told her to
And they'll never see her dream come true

The edge of revelation, believing all the stories told
A final moment taken before this story's end unfolds
It said "you're not the first to dream this, little girl
You know it's never happened once in this world
It never crossed my mind that one so young could hope to find a power greater than my own"

She never did what they told her to
And they'll never see her dream come true

Now she flies over clouds in twilight skies
Nothing to bind her, no one will find her this high
Far above the rainy weather
All plans have come together
And for the first time she feels just fine
