lyrics

You the feeder of my appetite
You the creature I was born to fight
You the victor of my blackest war
You the one that I was waiting for

You can tell me was she pretty
I don't care I don't care
I just think that it's a pity
You got there. You got there.

And I might not be like Cleopatra staring down the Romans
Joan of Arc in silver armour living out her omens
But I'll try
I will try
Can but try

You the cheapskate in the saddest sense
You the ingrate I was warned against
You the witness to this crooked farce
You the vampire in the looking glass

You can tell me was she pretty
I don't care I don't care
I just think that it's a pity
You got there. You got there.

And I might not be like Cleopatra staring down the Romans
Joan of Arc in silver armour living out her omens
But I’ll try
I will try
Can but try

You can tell me was she pretty
I don't care I don't care
I just think that it's a pity
You got there. You got there.

And I might not be like Cleopatra staring down the Romans
Joan of Arc in silver armour living out her omens

How could you be so beautiful to me
How could you be so beautiful to me
How could you be so beautiful to me
How could you be so beautiful to me
