Lips shining with precious metals, all plated over in silver and gold,
So lifeless and cold; you've always sparkled like a dying star, an icon of
Dead space and emptiness; hatred spans for a million miles, they will find you

Glitter-coated middle-page degradation.
One night stands and glam-rock bands, watch it all wash away
Like makeup, and then pray for redemption all over again; on your knees
For make-believe gods or to receive a different kind of
