  • When you kiss the base o'my spine
    Make my body into your shrine
    You give me this feeling deep inside
    One that I can no longer disguise
    While other snakes just shed their skins
    Fucked holes pointing out my sins
    Even though I realize that history's not on my side
    Even though I realize the pioneer skin still curls up in my eyes

    If I don't go crazy, I'll lose my mind
    I saw a life before me but now I'm blind
    I want to go to heaven, never been there before
    I want to go to heaven, so you give me some more

    Flying high upon the gallows
    Too messed up to step out of the shadows
    A drugged up heart that knows no sorrow
    Rescued from this deep dark hole
    Stick on these boots and sharpen the nails
    Time is nigh for you leather girls
    Maybe we should end this race
    Vanish while we cannot leave no trace

    If I don't go crazy, I'll lose my mind
    I saw a life before me, but now I'm blind
    See one-arm film stars on alien beaches
    Potted gold and tattooed faces
    Harrison murals on the corner, Tupperware boxes full of hops
    Diazepam dreams there catching streams
    Paper dinosaurs flash blue and green
    Still I've got a flash-bulb head
    Still I've got a flash-bulb head

    If I don't go crazy, I'll lose my mind
    I saw a life before me but now I'm blind
    I want to go to heaven, never been there before
    I want to go to heaven, so you give me some more

    Come along nice, come along dead
    Scorpio rising, and paint it red
    A psychic equalizer in your head
    Come along nice, come along dead
    Scorpio rising, and paint it red
    A psychic equalizer in your head.. Writer/s: ANDREW WHISTON, FRANCIS DOMINIC MICHAEL NICOLA ROSSI, HARRY PRATT, IAN BUTTON, RICHARD DENIS MAGUIRE, TIM HOLMES
