I never know
I never care
I never believe my people
I'll tell you what I say
I never lie
I never try
I never cry for you people
I'll push you
Push you away
As you lonely people
Keep on running around my door
Yes you lonely people
Keep on begging
Beg for more
And I'll cry for you
Yes I'll die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll tell you now how I feel inside
Feel in my heart it's for you
I'll never try
I'll never die
I'll never push for you people
I'll tell you how I feel
I'll never lie
I'll never cry
I'll never try for you people
I'll tell you, yes it's real
And you lonely poeple
Keep on passing time away
Yes you lonely people keep on passin,
Pass away
And I'll cry for you
Yes I'll die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll tell you now how I feel inside
Feel in my heart it's for you
And I'll take everything
As it comes my way
Pushin' your pain around my door
And I cry for you yes I die for you
Is this blood on my hands all for you
You shiver
You shudder
Recovers your mother
You feel it take all alone
Come around town
Steal another dime
Take another line
Won't you feel it
Blanket your soul
Out of mind
Come around town
Steal another dime
Do another crime
Won't you get it higher & higher
All through time
Come around town
Steal another dime
Don't you push your drugs in my face
Yes, I'm feeling fine
Feelin' fine
Don't you push drugs in my face
Or I'm gonna put you in your place
F*ck you
I don't want it no more
And It's mine, this pain in my heart is all mine
Yes it's mine all alone
As I cry for you
Yes I'll die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll take everything
As it comes my way
Feel in my heart it's for you
And I'll lie for you as I die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll tell you now
How I feel inside
F*ck you
It's for you
