I'll swallow up all of you
Like a big bottle of big, big pills
You're the one that I should never take
But I can't sleep until I devour you
I can't sleep until I devour you
You're a flower that's withering
I can't feel your thorns in my head

This is no impressionability
You're not crying, this is blood all over me
You're not crying, this is blood all over me
You're not crying, this is blood all over me
And I'll love you, if you let me
And I'll love you, if you won't make me starve

I used to hold your heart to neck
I know I'll miss you if I close my eyes
But this is loaded with an open film
I'll see you and I'll blow your heart to pieces
I will blow your heart to pieces
I will blow your heart to pieces
I will blow your heart to pieces
And I'll love you, if you let me
And I'll love you, if you won't make me starve
Oh oh oh oh... Oh oh oh oh... Oh oh oh oh... Oh oh oh oh...

My pain's not ashamed to repeat itself
Pain's not ashamed to repeat itself
Pain's not ashamed to repeat itself
Pain's not ashamed to repeat itself
I can't sleep until I devour you
I can't sleep until I devour you
I can't sleep until I devour you
I can't sleep until I devour you
I can't sleep until I devour you
And I'll love you, if you let me
And I'll love you, if you won't make me starve

    Its about his ex... I knew it when i heard it, but he confirmed it... Devour is about his break up with her... And how she is bad for him, and all the anger he felt... Etc etc etc... But man oh man, i looove this song! One of my favs for sure!! It makes me feel 'empowered' over my ex's and loss's in life... Love it =)

    the song stops short for me as well... i get the meaning that either it is "a" drug or something/someone that is represented that way that you can't get enough of... I don't know if any of you have had the problem or not but for me hooked on a drug is really like a screwed up bad relationship... that's after a couple of days listening... maybe wrong but that is what i get from it

    This isn't necessarily a meaning, but more of a question. I've noticed that on this song, it ends while he's singing. It just stops. I wanted to know if any other people have experienced this because I can't tell if it was an error in the iTunes download, or an artistic extra Manson put into the song. Thank you.
