Lyrics[edit]

    I could give you a dozen 
    fresh, 
    cut, 
    pink, or red, or white
    I wonder if they knew what they 
    would grow to become
    
    I could give you a dozen 
    fresh, 
    cut, 
    pink, or red, or white
    I wonder if they knew what they 
    would grow to become
    
    become become 
    become become
    be be be become
    
    you'll have to cut it down 
    and burn me into splinters
    or I'll unwrap the string 
    that was me, 
    around your finger.
    And I'll hang you in 
    your bedroom burial ground
    
    there is a taste for blood 
    and it's something deep inside
    there is a taste for blood 
    and it's deep inside
    
    become become 
    become become
    be be be become
    
    I don't ever want god 
    to hear our screams 
    and mistake them for prayers
    And you know I'm loaded 
    but not which chamber
    touch me and i'll go 
    Click click click click click
    Click click click click click
    Click click click click click
    
    there is a taste for blood 
    and it's something deep inside
    there is a taste for blood 
    and it's deep inside
    
    become become 
    become become
    be be be become
    
    And you know I'm loaded 
    But not which chamber
    Touch me and i'll go 
    Click click click click click
    Click click click click click
    Click click click click click
    
    I'm born villain 
    don't pretend to be a victim
    I'm born villain
    don't pretend to be a victim
    I'm born villain
    don't pretend to be a victim
    I'm born villain
    don't pretend to be a victim
