Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Big bunch of junkie lies,
That's what you told; it was televised.
How can you say that I told you
To obey me? Now, that ain't true.
That's bullshit and you
Know why I did what I did to you.
You were killing my best friend
With cocaine and heroin.
The son of your good friend
Is lying dead in your apartment.
How many is that now, oh?
Will you be next on a hotel floor?
Big bunch of junkie lies,
You tell yourself and your little vampires.
You sucked the life of my true friend.
Did what I did to make her live again.
And I never apologised.
You stole the light out of my friend's eyes
With bullshit and junkie lies.
What will it take for you to realise?
She left and she ain't coming home.
She only needs you 'cause she hates being alone.
She can't tell who is a good or bad man
Because her daddy was a fucked up worm.
Big bunch of junkie lies,
That's what he said and looked her in her eyes.
Big bunch of junkie lies
Is all he left her when he said goodbye.
Now the angels have her in their arms,
And heroin will never steal her charms.
And you can stamp your baby feet and cry;
She don't believe your junkie lies.
Big bunch of junkie lies,
That's what you told; it was televised.
Big bunch of junkie lies.
