Lyrics:

Cast the pearls aside, of a simple life of need
Come into my life forever
The crumbled cities stand as known
Of the sights that you have been shown
Of the hurt you call your own

Love is suicide x4

The empty bodies stand at rest
Casualties of their own flesh
Afflicted by their dispossession

But no bodies ever knew
Nobodys
No bodies felt like you
Nobodys

Love is suicide x4

(These words are gently chanted as Billy sings "Love is suicide"):

destroy, despise, distrust, disobey
destroy, distrust, disloyal, disarm
destroy, despise, dissect, deny
destroy, despise, distrust.

Now we drive the night, to the ironies of peace
You can't help deny forever
The tragedies reside in you
The secret sights hide in you
The lonely nights divide you in two
All my blisters now revealed
In the darkness of my dreams
In the spaces in between us
But nobodies ever knew
Nobodys
No bodies felt like you
Nobodys

Love is suicide x4


That's all! Enjoy ;)
