  • Drip, drip, drip
    Drip, drip, drip
    Drip, drip, drip
    Drip, drip, drip
    Drip, drip, drip
    Drip, drip, drip, drip

    I shouldn't laugh, but I know I'm a failure in your eyes
    I know its daft, but I guess I know it deep inside
    It feels like we're ready to crack these days, you and I
    When it's just the two of us, only the two of us, I could die

    You left my heart like an abandoned car
    Old and worn and no use at all
    But I used to be free
    We're gonna separate ourselves tonight
    We're always running scared but holding knives
    But there's a black chandelier
    It's casting shadows and lies

    Drip, drip, drip, drip

    I'll sit in silence for the rest of my life if you'd like
    Dressing our wounds with industrial gloves made of wire
    Feel it penetrating the skin, we begin to relax
    When it's just the two of us, and a cute little cup of cyanide

    You left my heart like an abandoned car
    Old and worn and no use at all
    But I used to be free

    We're gonna separate ourselves tonight
    We're always running scared but holding knives
    But there's a black chandelier
    It's casting shadows and lies
    We're gonna separate ourselves tonight
    We're always running scared but holding knives
    But there's a black chandelier

    You left my heart like an abandoned car
    Old and worn and no use at all
    But I used to be free

    We're gonna separate ourselves tonight
    We're always running scared but holding knives
    But there's a black chandelier
    It's casting shadows and lies
    We're gonna separate ourselves tonight
    We're always running scared but holding knives
    But there's a black chandelier Writer/s: SIMON ALEXANDER NEIL
