lyrics

Well It’s not like you to feel so alone
You’ve got hordes of admirers who would die to get you home
But that scene breeds a cruel kind of love
So for now you must survive on your own

Well it’s important that you leave all this behind
Making love in odd numbers, well it’s not how we’re designed
And they left their sick inscription in your veins
Oh my darling, the fates have not been kind

So what’s that in the back of your mind, my dear?
There’s something lonely nesting under this obscene veneer
You scream and cry, you wonder why
The good boys have all gone bad
So why don’t you go back home
And reclaim what little innocence you had

But might I remind you as you’re falling back to earth
We’ve been through this before, this endless cycle of rebirth
And while you might feel oh, so wholesome for a while
We all know that crude affection stokes the fires of your self-worth

So what’s that in the back of your mind, my dear?
There’s something lonely nesting under this obscene veneer
You scream and cry, you wonder why
The good boys have all gone bad
So why don’t you go back home
And reclaim what little innocence you had

So call me, when the walls start crumbling
Woah, they’re tumbling down
I’ll spin you any lies you ask of me
We’ll exorcise the whole town
Is it love or is it sickness?
I don’t care anymore
Just hold me darling, and we’ll kill this beast
That knocks at you door

So what’s that in the back of your mind, my dear?
There’s something lonely nesting under this obscene veneer
Like Queens of old, you broke the mould
But the mould wasn’t all that bad
So why don’t you go back
Why don’t you go back home?

So what’s that in the back of your mind, my dear?
There’s something lonely nesting under this obscene veneer
You scream and cry, you wonder why
The good boys have all gone bad
So why don’t you go back home
And reclaim what little innocence you had
