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 ;)
