lyrics

my reflection is clear
when i look into the mirror she's here
stare right into her fair blue eyes
and fear their incredible level of hypnotizing
here's where my hands raise up when she winds me near
they're cold, my soul is non-existent
consistent rain takes me in an instant
resistance strains, she's just too distant
my princess pain makes me insistent
on self destruction
i cannot function
i got these strings and i cannot cut them
i cannot be, my life's just too much
and i cannot leave, without her i'm nothin'

if i don't suffer i don't love her
i would die on my own
her pain will keep me sane
i cannot live with dying alone
my heart is bleeding black
attacking everything in my mind
she made it just for me
a wicked lovely painful design

i'm all patched up and sewn
but falling to pieces
a marionette
my free will ceases
my hope's all gone
just taunts and teases
it reaches beyond my everything
and it freezes
my withering heart
and then i slivered apart
and i consider the winter i met her there in the park
it was a scarred dark day
when the rope made a mark
and and made a part of my mind
into part of her art

if i don't suffer i don't love her
i would die on my own
her pain will keep me sane
i cannot live with dying alone
my heart is bleeding black
attacking everything in my mind
she made it just for me
a wicked lovely painful design

as i wither away the thread animate my body alive
inside i imagine what it's like when you die
i know i wanna stay, though i'm living a lie
i wanna say i'm happy here with my buttons for eyes
they don't cry, they don't tear
they hide but hold fear
i try not to sigh with concise control
we're designed intertwined
but the line she holds dear
i might be blind but i'm fine, i cope here

no one's done this
no one's touched this
i'm her puppet
how i love it

if i don't suffer i don't love her
i would die on my own
her pain will keep me sane
i cannot live with dying alone
my heart is bleeding black
attacking everything in my mind
she made it just for me
a wicked fucking painful design
