"" ("Spade") is the tenth track on the 2003 release The Golden Age of Grotesque. The audio sampled at the beginning is from an instructional video for women in abusive relationships. The woman says, "Both of us aren't going to last. I'm not going to talk to him. I tell him to feel while I have a bad idea about doing this. He molds and twists trying to keep back the feelings welling up and up. But I realize why he did this to me. Don't listen to them when they ask for forgiveness. Don't accept their apology. Take what you need from them and let them know you have someone else. The tears you shed are the tears of millions. It all ends now." [1]

Lyrics[edit]

    The beauty spot was borrowed and
    Now my sweet knife rusts tomorrow.
    I'm a confession that is waiting to be heard.
    
    Burn your empty rain down on me
    Whisper your deathbeat so softly
    We bend our knees
    At the altar of my ego
    
    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
    
    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

Trivia[edit]

  • The lyrics "You drained my heart / And made a spade" are similar to the line "I drained my heart and burn my soul" in the 1997 song "Apple of Sodom".
