  • When I was young,
    and unbroken,
    I tried so hard to get under my mama's skin,
    and so it begins.
    I braced myself,
    embraced myself,
    misplaced myself,
    and all with a shit eating grin,
    and the prick of a pin.

    It's a Killer Life,
    It's a Killer Life,
    It's a Killer Life,
    Now on with the show!

    I built this house with walls of flesh
    and broken bones
    and skins
    and I must confess,
    That I'm a sweet mess.
    I changed by guard,
    with no regard
    I'm not unscarred so far,
    but I'm a success,
    of bitter sweetness!

    It's a Killer Life,
    It's a Killer Life,
    It's a Killer Life,
    Now on with the show! Writer/s: Chantal Claret, Peter Yanowitz
