Lyrics

when jackie hits the street
she swears that all she sees
is the hunger in their eyes
and the desperation in their speech
when jackie hunts the shadows
with a bowie knife at her elbows
she cuts free those horrible drums
that beat like bats under their sternums
she wears their fear around her neck
i heard it all
from shady street
she travels light
on angel feets
best watch your back
if i be you
her body's warm
then execute
well jackie's still on the loose
as detective's gather clues so she
tattoos a mustache above her lip
shaves her head curses god for those hips
that sway when the beat plays
dead give-away she ain't no man
and i don't see what everybody
sees in your sexy body
all i see is a shallow grave
trapped inside a pretty face
and rescue me
is written on your bed
home is where the bullet lands
after it travels through your head
and i believe that all i need to set me free
is for someone, someday, somewhere
to murder me
and i don't see what everybody
sees in your sexy body
all i see is a shallow grave
trapped inside a pretty face
i walk the same cold streets
i overhear the same heartbeats
and i tune my drum just right
so you can come set it off in the night
and i want to be embraced by you
and see our violent pasts collide
i want to crawl in your autumn mouth
and feel the crows pick me apart inside
everything that they said is true
i'm on a downward spiral towards you
and i'll fight through the positive steps
as i hurtle towards my final descent
and i need to get back to you
and lay this heavy head in your lap
cause these days nothing makes more sense
than to dance towards the inevitable end
and i'm wearing virginal white for you don't you see
so please come with your sharpened knives and murder me
and i'm wearing virginal white for you don't you see
so please come with your sharpened knives and murder me
and i'm wearing virginal white for you don't you see
and my eyes are more open now than they'll ever be
set me free
set me free
why you gotta be
"i heard it all before"
'cause it don't always end
the way it end before
there ain't no god here as far as i can see
your god of hope and light never did nothing straight by me
