I prayed to god from hell
Run like a midnight bell
Dancing naked in these streets
Thought I was Jesus Christ
As I dug out my eyes
And threw them past the prison gates

So I still can't explain
What I had to do
To try and make it
Since your red lips turned blue

Now I'm a hunted man
Singing the song you sung
Wearing the noose from which you hung
I guess we lost the war
The air I breathed before
Only fill the dead man's lungs

So I still can't explain
What I had to do
To try and make it
Since your red lips turned blue

The devil is the lord
Of this confusing world
Where all the wrong dreams come true
I never needed light
I never felt like I was right
Did not deserve the love I knew

So I still can't explain
What I had to do
To try and make it
Since your red lips turned blue
