lyrics

You’ve sewn me up, stuffed up with fear
My heart unsteady through the years
It’s need to beat is need-to-know
You dig the grave, I’ll find the hole

The street song plays on and on
(Give the girl a little love she can lean on)
So when you feel me you can
Lift your hands in praise

Red hot and holy
Could you touch me like you told me?

I’m low down and lonely
All you can give me now is something that I don’t need
You’re everything I don’t need

Untangling strings so queer
Tied up tight in a dress that never fit
You treated me like a souvenir
Wrapped in plastic—suffocated counterfeit
Black licorice
I’m feverish
All the prayers from your pew couldn’t save me

Red hot and holy
Could you touch me like you told me?
I’m lowdown and lonely
All you can give me now is something that I don’t need
Red hot and holy
How can you judge me? You don’t even know me. 
I’m lowdown and lonely
All you can give me is everything I don’t need
You’re everything I don’t need

My inconspicuous friends
Collect their partners and bend
But I don’t know if I know
I don’t think love is a science
I think that love is a violence
And it’s striking a blow
So get up, get up and make it harder
Get up and pretend to be a martyr
‘Cause I’m a liar baby, and you’re a liar baby
We’re all liars lately

Red hot and holy
Could you touch me like you told me? 

Red hot and holy
Could you touch me like you told me?

I’m lowdown and lonely
All you can give me now is something that I don’t need
Red hot and holy
How can you judge me?
You don’t even know me.

I’m lowdown and lonely
All you can give me is everything I don’t need
Black licorice
I’m feverish
All your prayers from the pew couldn’t save me
I’m lowdown and lonely
Good god
All you can give me
Give me until I bleed, bleed, bleed
You’re everything I don’t need
