Calling cards of madness
Pull the brass men from their knees
To petrify more images to dangle
Just outside the reach

Of the stunted and the dreamless ones
Who have nothing left to keep
For frozen dawns or nights
As cold as these have been

Don't ask for explanations
There's nothing left you'd understand
You're one of the wild, the beautiful and the damned, the damned
The wild, the beautiful and the damned

We read the latest venereal journals
Flicked through some catalogs of fear
You tore some more pages
From your old lovers hearts

Then we engineered a wild reunion
In a Berlin Alleyway
While your New York Fuhrer
Tore our universe apart

Don't ask for explanations
There's nothing left you'd understand
You're one of the wild, the beautiful and the damned, the damned
The wild, the beautiful and the damned

Break my legs politely
I'll spit my gold teeth out at you
Your sores are almost big enough
To step right inside now

I'll send you truckloads of flowers
From all the worlds that you stole from me
I'll spin a coin in the madhouse
While I watch you drowning

Don't ask for explanations
There's nothing left you'd understand
You're one of the wild, the beautiful and the damned, the damned
The wild, the beautiful and the damned, the damned

The wild, the beautiful and the damned, the damned
The wild, the beautiful and the damned, the damned
The wild, the beautiful and the damned
The wild, the beautiful and the damned
