about

Non-album track from the sessions for "We Belong Dead"

lyrics

It hurts when we fuck, and it hurts when we don't
Heads will roll, now I know you from the button to the bone

So go on, go ahead and lie to me
Say you'll really try for me, then turn right round and lie to me, Emile

You pretend to get undressed, but did you tell the creaking step?
You forget that I still know you from the skull down to your soul

So go on, go ahead and lie to me
Say you'll really try for me, then turn right round and lie to me, Emile
Go ahead and lie to me
Say you'll do or die for me, then slide that little knife in me, Emile

The best of friends make the blithest liars
And the best intent makes the brightest fire
Now I know where the horses went
In the plume of a golden pyre
And I know where the moths ascend
And why to burn is the heart's desire

So go on, go ahead and lie to me
Say you'll really try for me, then turn right round and lie to me, Emile
Go ahead and lie to me
Say you'll do or die for me, then slide that little knife in me, Emile
Emile
