I Never Told You What I Do for a Living
by My Chemical Romance



I Never Told You What I Do for a Living

Stay out of the light
Or the photographs that I gave you
You can say a prayer if you need to
Or just get in line and I’ll grieve you
Can I meet you, alone
Another night and I’ll see you
Another night and I’ll be you
Some other way to continue
To hide my face

Another knife in my hands
A stain that never comes off the sheets
Clean me off
I'm so dirty, babe
The kind of dirty
Where the water never cleans off the clothes
I keep a book of the names and those
Only go so far to bury them
So deep and down we go

Touched by angels though, I fall out of grace
I did it all so maybe I’d live this everyday

Another knife in my hands
A stain that never comes off the sheets
Clean me off
I’m so dirty, babe
It ain't the money
And it sure as hell ain't just for the fame
It’s for the bodies I claim and those
Only go so far to bury them
So deep and down we go
Down
And down we go
And down we go
And down we go
And we all fall down

And we'll all dance alone to the tune of your death
We’ll love again, we'll laugh again
And it's better off this way

And never again, and never again
They gave us two shots to the back of the head
And we're all dead now

Well never again, and never again
They gave us two shots to the back of the head
And we're all dead now

I tried, one more night, one more night
Well I’m laughing', crying', laughing'
I tried, well I tried, well I tried
Cause I tried, but I lied
I tried, I tried, I tried

And we'll love again and we'll laugh again
We’ll try again and we'll dance again
And it's better off this way
So much better off this way
I can't clean the blood off the sheets in my bed

Never again, and never again
They gave us two shots to the back of the head
And we're all dead now
