Now that I fell into your arms
My only lover, give out to give in
I search for the capsule I lost

Drag me to hell in the valley of the Dalles
Like my mother, give wings to a stone
It's only the shadow of a cross

I slept on my back in the shade of the meadowlark
Like a champion, get drunk to get laid
I take one more hit when you depart

I'll drive that stake through the center of my heart
Lonely vampire inhaling its fire
I'm chasing the dragon too far

There's blood on that blade, f*ck me, I'm falling apart
My assassin like Casper the ghost
There's no shade in the shadow of the cross
