I cannot spend another night in this home I close my eyes and take a breath real slow The consequences if I leave 'em alone But what's the difference when you beg for love?
'Cause I learned the blood's in the stream Cannot see, oh With the name that my father gave me And take the face of the one
This is a wasteland, my only retreat With heaven above you, there's hell over me
I met a girl who never looked so alone Like sugar water in your mouth luke warm She tied her cherry stem for me with her tongue We fell in love and now we're both alone
'Cause I don't need any more friends And another kiss like a fire on pavement We'll burn it down to the end
Oh, oh This is a wasteland, my only retreat With heaven above you there's hell over me The water is rising, the air is so clean. And then for a second I feel fine This is a wasteland, my only retreat
I waited all this night to what you say I know it's hard, but who you are you to fall apart on me, on me
This is a waste land my only retreat With heaven above you there's hell over me
'Cause this is a waste land my only retreat With heaven above you there's hell over me (Said) What about us well, what about me? Came from the girl that's asleep in the rain This is a waste land, my only retreat
