    I see you standin'
    Whatever for?
    All abandoned like an old whore


VERSE:
     Who really knows where the rubies rise?
     I see all those sick reflections in your ruby eyes
     And I know all you devils by your Christian names
     And I know all you bitches by your Christian names

CHORUS:
     Now I getta watch, I getta watch
     Now I getta watch you die
     Bless my body and bless my soul
     Wrap it in turpentine

    Acrid syphilic coteries
    Put your head up over your legs
    Count backwards from infinity
    I said, oh, oh, whoa


VERSE:
    I eat the rose and the dirt it grows in
    You don't even know what hole that's supposed to go in
    And now you're mad and you're snubbing me
    It stinks up here in the junkie tree

CHORUS:
     Now you getta watch, you getta watch
     Now you getta watch me die
     Bless my body and bless my soul
     Wrap in turpentine 

BRIDGE:
     Acrid syphilic coteries
     Put your legs up over your head
     I better walk into your suicide
     So you can feel them hold him down to his side
     I cease to exist on the Christmas list
     I cease to exist in the old disease
     I lie right down, baby give it to me
     I lie right down

     Nowhere, walking backwards, forward...
     Nowhere, walking backwards, forward...
     Nowhere, walking backwards, forward...
     Nowhere, walking backwards, forward...
     Nowhere, backwards, forwards...
