Faith No More – Chinese Arithmetic lyrics

Candle light, it burns in every hole of your eyes
It's beautiful, how much you'll never realize
So hush my love, there's something I'm to tell you now
Your time has come, around again my sleepless one

Your friend was young, hung and plastered
He never knew his own disaster
I think it's good, in fact it was faster
Cause it was you that he was after

Hold me now, as if you'll never let me go
Unhand me now, as if you've always known my name

His love was king, his love was master
He needed more, he needed always
He searched in vein for love and shelter
In every soul, in every hallway

So you thought she'd be sweeter than your girlfriend peter
Well give it a second chance cause you've yet to meet her
We got the same ideas, we got the same old fears
They're different colors sometimes, but, hey, who cares?
Just years that tears our lives apart
Just like the time that you tried to teach your cousin to walk
He couldn't do it-push!-you told him twice
Well, I do man but it just don't jive

Tried so hard to control my behavior
I tried so hard, so hard to believe you
But now I live only to deceive you...

So kick and scream!!!
