Heartstrings (Love is a Parasite)

I have no home
So I’ll get lost in you
I have no heart
So I’ll take yours apart
I have no dreams
So I’ll unstitch your seams
I am not real
I have your soul to steal

We’re in too deep now
Back to the streets now
It’s time we shut down
Take a bow take a bow take a bow

Can you feel me scratching on the inside of your skull
There are filthy passages inside your crumbling walls
You let me in I locked you out we’ve got a lot to talk about
So why not now?
The night is long
I taught your demons all my songs

We’re in too deep now
Back to the streets now
It’s time we shut down
Take a bow take a bow take a bow

I won’t leave you darling when the light begins to fade
You cannot be lonely when you’re wrapped up in my game
We traded lies I sympathize I guess it’s really no surprise
I’ll be waiting just inside
When you close your eyes

I had no home
So I got lost in you
I had no heart
So I took yours apart
I had no dreams
So I unstitched your seams
 I am not real
I have your soul to steal

We’re in too deep now
Back to the streets now
It’s time we shut down
Take a bow take a bow take a bow
