See in me the side of you

That sometimes makes you jump with fright Smiler with knife it's your big night

Sinking bed, all warm and clean Only sadness waits for me Smiler with knife you're just in time You're just in time

Press the blade against my skin Never to make love again Smiler with knife it's alright

Surrender will I am before you I am sick to death of life Smiler with knife, alight Alight

If such things weren't meant to be Then they would never come to me Smiler, oh, don't worry so

Slamming one shots, gentle pain Someone calling out my name Sex and love are not the same Are not the same

Time has frittered long and slow All I am and was will go But where to and why now?

When my last breath falls away Smiler, trust me when I say: "You'll be OK" "You'll be OK"
