Lyrics[edit]

 A girl is a man's sickness,
 -- we all know the way it
 ends. No matter how many
 times we film it, -- the
 audience thinks
 they've seen it -- for the first
 time... -- And things that
 are pretty, are always
 kept behind glass. -- And
 someone like me, -- someone
 like me -- can't make it last.
 
 I LIKE YOU DAMAGED,
 BUT I NEED
 SOMETHING LEFT.
 
 SOMETHING FOR ME.
 SOMETHING FOR ME TO
 WRECK.
 SOMEONE FOR ME TO
 WRECK.
 
 You are mu sickness,
 we all know the way it ends.
 -- No matter how we film
 it, -- the audience thinks
 -- that they saw it -- for
 the first time. -- Things
 that are pretty, -- are
 always kept behind glass.
 -- And someone like me, --
 someone like me -- can't
 make it last.
 
 I LIKE YOU DAMAGED,
 BUT I NEED
 SOMETHING LEFT.
 
 SOMETHING FOR ME.
 SOMETHING FOR ME
 TO WRECK.
 
 I LIKE YOU DAMAGED,
 BUT I NEED
 SOMETHING LEFT.
 
 SOMETHING FOR ME.
 SOMETHING FOR ME
 TO WRECK.
 
 SOMEONE FOR ME TO
 WRECK.
 SOMEONE FOR ME TO
 WRECK.
 
 My seed would have made
 good fruit -- and you could
 have been a tree. -- I could
 have cut you down -- or just
 let you be. -- Because,
 things that are pretty,
 are always kept behind
 glass. -- And someone like
 me, -- Someone like me
 can't -- make it last. -- I
 like you damaged...
