The Killing Moon – Subject A lyrics

Subject A wants to throw it all away
He's sick of all the pain
Wants to turn it all into rage
Learn how the barrel tastes
Before it's too late

[chorus]
I just want to get through the day
We're all just shades of gray
In a long and frantic race
To catch a dying day
(I just want to get through the day)
For one second I'd slit your throat
Spill blood across the floor
Put an end to this game

They thought you would have learned by now
But you're still questioning (God would this be a better place without me?)
So much is lost within each second
So they say you became another waste of space
So you learn how the barrel tastes (Gray!)
And the world will watch as he blows his head off

[chorus]

Take the time to smell while the rose is red
Before they're all dried up and dead
It's never too late (2x)
Remember the blood running through your vein

Take the time to smell while the rose is red
Before they're all dried up and dead
It's never too late (2x)
Remember the blood running through your vein

[chorus]

We are gray
