  • See in me the side of you
    That sometimes makes you jump with fright
    Smiler with knife, it's your big night

    Sinking bed, all warm and clean
    Only sadness waits for me
    Smiler with knife you're just in time
    You're just in time

    Press the blade against my skin
    Never to make love again
    Smiler with knife it's alright

    Surrender will I am before you
    I am sick to death of life
    Smiler with knife, alight

    If such things weren't meant to be
    Then they would never come to me
    Smiler, oh, don't worry so

    Slamming one shots, gentle pain
    Someone calling out my name
    Sex and love are not the same
    Are not the same

    Time has frittered long and slow
    All I am and was will go
    But where to and why now?

    When my last breath falls away
    Smiler, trust me when I say:
    "You'll be okay"
