I'm on the street yeah
I want you
I'm looking for myself 

I'm gonna make it
I'll take it
Like everybody else

 Belle of the fawning 
I'm yawning  Sister can't you spell 

 Above suspicion
Hey listen!
I'm digging my own hell

'Cause I want you bad
'Cause I want you bad

And without peer
And without fear
I'm without anyone at all
I'm torn apart, decrying 
How unjust you are
For bursting 
My black heart

'Cause you don't want me no more
But just you worry 
'Cause when they scratch-scratch my door
You'll hurry 
Ah one, two, three 

This gun is loaded, devoted 
You postulate the rest

 Riding the seesaw 
There's no law
That I have ever met

I'm just a flat punk
On dead junk
 Riding a vanguard 

Cut from the vaunted 
I'm haunted, till death do us part

'Cause I want you bad
'Cause I want you bad

Fall in hate with me
With one trick 
You will want it all
The yeah-yeah tears 
The now and here
The without anyone at all
I'm torn without 
I'm crying out for doom

'Cause you don?t want me no more
But babe don't worry 
'Cause when you scratch-scratch my door
I'll show you, either or ?

We are the lurking 
The panzers 
The black as coal as night 

 Stealing the stealthy 
And stellar  Until we get it right 

 Notice the yearlings 
The dead things, the pretty as you please 
The pretty as you please 

I am the regent, the marquis  Sowing my bad seeds 

'Cause I want you bad
'Cause I want you bad

Fall in hate with me
With one trick 
You will want it all
As St. Patrick pipes on!
