Intro: 
Am F G 
(x2)
 
 
(Verse 1)
                               Am
I feel it welling up inside
                       F
And Robert Smith lied, 
         G           Am
Boys do cry and with  
                       F                 G            Am
Blood tears in my eyes I’m an Anne Rice novel come to life. 
                        F     G
I can’t hide the monster… anymore. 
        Am                         F       G
One can, only feel desolate for so long until 
Asus2                     Am
 One starts to change into 
                                       F  
Something the mirror doesn't recognize. 
 
Metamorphosize.
G                                       Asus2
  The darkness has been biding its time
                           Am
To claim its latest victim, 
                              F
Fresh meat for carnal desires, 
                         G
To become, what I became. 
 
I viewed the sun for the last time.
 
 
(Chorus)
F        G             Am
Will you still hold me when you see what I have done? 
F        G                 Am
Will you still kiss me the same, 
                           F
When you taste my victim’s blood? 
    G
So crimson and red,
Em                          F          Em
I feel it flowing from your lips. (Crimson and red)
 
My heart is dead and so are you.
 
 
(Verse 2)
Am
And it pulses through, 
                      F
The desire to change, to deconstruct 
 
All of my,
G                        Am
All of my, past failings. 
 
But where to begin, because when you live in sin
                     F
It’s hard to look at saints,
                             G
Without them reflecting your jet black aura back on you. 
Am
And all I have is hope
 
My inner burn’s not fading,
F                                G
I’ll wipe the blood from my cheek and get on with my day. 
 
 
(Chorus)
F        G             Am
Will you still hold me when you see what I have done? 
F        G                 Am
Will you still kiss me the same, 
                           F
When you taste my victim’s blood? 
    G
So crimson and red,
Em                          F          Em
I feel it flowing from your lips. (Crimson and red)
 
My heart is dead and so are you.
 
 
(Bridge)
Am                Asus2
And all I have is hope 
Am                Asus2
And all I need is time 
F                                 G
To bury in pine under six feet of time 
                         Am
The lies I told me about myself. 
            Asus
Claw my way out, 
Am                                     Asus
Pick the splinters from under my fingernails. 
F
I won’t lose hope, 
G
I won’t give in. 
Em            F
Just live and breathe, try not to die again.
Em            F
Just live and breathe, try not to die again.
Em            F           G
Just live and breathe, try not to die again.
 
I try not to die again.
 
 
(Chorus V.2)
Gb       Ab            F
Will you still hold me when you see what I have done? 
Gb       Ab                F
Will you still kiss me the same, 
                           Gb
When you taste my victim’s blood? 
   Ab
So crimson and red, 
F                                Gb             Ab2
I feel it flowing from your lips. (Crimson and red)
 
My heart is dead and so are you.
 
 
(Chorus/End)
Gb       Ab            F
Will you still hold me when you see what I have done? 
Gb       Ab                F
Will you still kiss me the same, 
                           Gb
When you taste my victim’s blood? 
   Ab
So crimson and red, 
Gb        Ab                F
I feel it flowing from your lips.(When you taste my victim's blood)
 
My heart is dead and so are you.

                  I feel it welling up inside and Robert Smith lied
Boys do cry and with blood tears in my eyes
I'm an Anne Rice novel come to life
I can't hide the monster anymore
One can only feel desolate for so long
Until one starts to change
Into something the mirror doesn't recognize
I metamorphasize
The darkness has been biding its time
To claim its latest victim
Fresh meat for carnal desires
To become what I became
I viewed the sun for the last time

[Chorus:]
Will you still hold me when you see what I have done?
Will you still kiss me the same when you taste my victim's blood?
So crimson and red, I feel it flowing from your lips (crimson and red)
My heart is dead and so are you

And it pulses through, the desire to change
The desire to deconstruct all of my past failings
But where to begin because when you live in sin
It's hard to look at saints without them
Reflecting your jet black auras back on you
And all I have is hope, my inner burn's not fading
I'll wipe the blood from my cheek and get on with my day

[Chorus]

And all I have is hope, and all I need is time
To bury in pine under six feet of time
The lies I told me about myself
Claw my way out, pick the splinters from under my fingernails
I won't lose hope, I won't give in
Just live and breathe and try not to die again

[Chorus x2]
