when i was young
i believed my heart was shaped
just the way they portrayed it
on the television
and it was painted red
like a brick house

but lately i've learned
it's been sprayed black
from the bruises it's taken
it's shaken
i was mistaken
you make it pulse at times
but without you it's dead
without the beat it used to have
the chains have held it down
from falling out of my chest
it can't hold on any longer
it's dead and blackened
from your disgusting way
of loving me

mayday mayday
i'm going down
i was shot with an arrow
the engine has failed
i'm burning! burning …
someone explain
the pain
it's a shame
to have to ask you
to tell me the truth
do you love me?

was it fate?
is this a joke?
am i a fool?
for loving you?
am i doomed?
why can't you answer me?
i haven't even sewed your lips shut
to stop the lies
not yet
so answer me!

lately i've learned
it's been sprayed black
from the bruises it's taken
it's shaken
i was mistaken
you make it pulse at times
but without you it's dead
without the beat it used to have
the chains have held it down
from falling out of my chest
it can't hold on any longer
it's dead and blackened
from your disgusting way
of loving me

love me
kill me
just shoot me
i'm burning in your eyes
throw me the gasoline!
watch me burn!

from falling out of my chest
it can't hold on any longer
it's dead and blackened
from your disgusting way
of loving me

I loved it! I could imagine the heart with the chains on it, and set up like a brick wall. I think you have talent! (:

I could also feel the tension, it was like I was almost there. And this whole comment is coming from a music junkie!

This is beautiful. It's not encoded, or put too bluntly, but in a way that I can actually tell what you're saying, and I like that. =) The lyrics are powerful

This is reallygood! I can really hear this being sung. If you worked on the rythm a little it would be even better. Good work!

People moving all the time inside a perfectly straight line. Don't you wanna curve away? When it's such, it's such a perfect day.

This is really raw and I can tell you really mean what you're saying. It brought tears to my eyes.
