Lyrics[edit]

    America bled to death
    Electric and pregnant
    Brilliant sluts and fire worship
    Devouring the righteous
    We were just monkeys braiding thread
    We were golden needles
    Diamonds and pollen
    And Coma White
    A manniqueen of depression
    The face of a Dead Star
    Fagged out for the coroner
    She was so soft in the bed
    And the pomegranate earth spins into oblivion
    The one that trembles
    The one that fears
    The one that suffers
    The one that vomits
    The one that needs
    The one that trembles
    The one that fears
    The one that suffers
    The one that vomits
    The one that needs
    
    A million scars, a million promises
    
    And all your sad endings are planting in their gardens
    And they're waiting to grow and to die like flowers do
