Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

You smell
And there's blood on your lips.
Your hands show them
What your mouth has kissed.
Now I know something
I did not know before
The thing you destroyed
Is the thing you liked me for.
All those nights with my arse in your face
And your words in my dreams,
Now I know what the value of ignorance means.
The pain and sordidness,
Out of all choices,
I thought you'd be the best.
At least I know something
About what's good and what hurts.
And I'm glad that I loathe it;
You would have fucked me up worse.
All those nights with my arse in your face
And your words in my dreams.
Now I know what the value of ignorance means.
All those nights with my arse in your face
And your words in my dreams.
Now I know what the value of ignorance means.
Don't you ever lie to me again
Because if you do, I will not be your friend.
Oo-ooh, wo-wo-wo-woh.
Oo-ooh, wo-wo-wo-woh.
Oo-ooh, wo-wo-wo-woh.
Oo-ooh, wo-wo-wo-woh.
Oo-ooh, wo-wo-wo-woh.
Oo-ooh, wo-wo-wo-woh.
