The beauty spot was borrowed and

I'm a confession that is waiting to be heard.

You drained my heart 
And made a spade 
But there's still traces of me 
in your veins 
You drained my heart 
And made a spade 
But there's still traces of me

All my lilies' mouths are open 
Like they're begging for dope 
And hoping 
Their bitter petal chant, 
"We can kick , you won't be back." 
I'm a diamond that is tired 
Of all the faces I've acquired 
We must secure the shadow 
Ere the substance fades 
You drained my heart 
And made a spade 
But there's still traces of me 
in your veins 
You drained my heart 
And made a spade 
But there's still traces of me 
in your veins 
And we said 'til we die 
And we said 'til we die
