she’s a hostage to his laughter
he’s the needle at her hip
they both know what’s coming after
they know it’s nasty but it fits

give them everything they ask for
on their sticky honey trip
if you give them what they’re after
i know they’ll give us all a hit

there’s no shame now, there’s a reason

she’s the reason for his laughter
he’s the pleasure in her grip
they both know it spells disaster
they know it’s deadly, but it clicks

there’s no shame now, there’s a reason

they’ve got the sweetest smile
you’d ever hope to see
they’ve got the sweetest kiss
that lips could ever need
they’ve got the sweetest breath
you’d ever hope to breathe
they’ve got the sweetest lives
that anyone could lead

everybody leaves before they learn to stay
everybody cheats before they learn to pay
everybody lives a little bit too late
everybody tries, everybody tries

she’s the heathen in his rafters
he’s the razor at her wrist
they both know what they are after
they know it’s buried and it’s rich

here we are now, this is an homage
an invitation, we are the ones
that you saw there in the dark
