I would lie anywhere with you
Any old bed of nails would do
Ink up the wound for a crude tattoo
Big old red heart with an anchor stuck through

Like a sister, Ophelia
Tell me you're there!
Like a lifeline, Ophelia
Tell me you're there!

Oh, Ophelia
I feel yer fall
Oh, Ophelia
I feel yer fall

Any of bed of nails for me
Just so you're there when I fall asleep
I lay all night in a lanky limbed heap
Surround me like a warm bath
Sum me up like an epitaph
Be blatant as a bailiff
I want my lips to blister when we kiss

Oh, Ophelia
I feel yer fall
Oh, Ophelia
I feel yer fall

Our love, Frankenstein in nature and design
Like the Shelleys on their very first time
When our bodies become electrified
Together, we bring this creature alive
It's alive, it's alive!
It's alive!

I would lie anywhere with you
Any old bed of nails would do
Ink up the wound for a crude tattoo
Bid old red heart with an anchor stuck through
I would lie anywhere with you
Any old bed of nails for me
Just so you're there when I fall asleep
I lay all night in a lanky-limbed heap
