Well it rains and it pours
When you're out on your own
If I crash on the couch
Can I sleep in my clothes?
'Cause I've spent the night dancing
I'm drunk, I suppose
If it looks like I'm laughing
I'm really just asking to leave

This alone, you're in time for the show
You're the one that I need
I'm the one that you loathe
You can watch me corrode like a beast in repose
'Cause I love all the poison
Away with the boys in the band

I've really been on a bender and it shows
So why don't you blow me a kiss before she goes?

Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

There's a place in the dark where the animals go
You can take off your skin in the cannibal glow
Juliet loves the beat and the lust it commands
Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, Romeo

I've really been on a bender and it shows
So why don't you blow me a kiss before she goes?

Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

Oh!

Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

Oooooo, Oooooo, Oooooo, Oooooo

    This song is about their drinking and drug problems and where they were left from them. How when they're drunk they pass out places n no one likes it (first three verses) How it's drug other people into it (Juliet loves a beat and the lust it commands, drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands romeo) How much they love it but in the end it destroies them (main verse and second verse).

    Its about a guy who hates his life during the day cause he puts on a front but when he goes out to bars or wherever he loves it because he can take off the mask he puts on in the reall world (take of ur skin) and he meets people and he gets drunk and high but its all he can do to escape hhis real life, but at the same time he can see that hes destroying himself but he loves his poison.
