killin's a bitch (and this bitch is killin' me) in the midnight hour crimson flowers wilt and hang their heads but I remember when we loved to drink the blood we bled two sharp knives we pierced the flesh and planted seeds inside we schemed to take this crazy world and skin it of its hide chorus: love is pain and life is death ironic so it goes that blood and roses, wine and flesh don't make the garden grow killin's a bitch and this bitch is killin me remember back when we were young how we killed without shame nothin brings two lovers closer than dishin out some pain a murder here and a murder there by poison, blade or hand an endless honeymoon we spent dancing with the dead do you think for a second that you can get out now squeeze through a loophole in our vows while you scream that you still love me and slide the knife into my back or poison me to heart attack all the skeletons in the closet there's no way out when love has died one corpse we cannot hide in the midnight hour crimson flowers wilt and hang their heads I remember when we loved to drink the blood we bled two sharp knives we pierced the flesh now that love has died there's nowhere left to hide life is pain and love is death deadly as a kiss
