The Speed of Pain

This song is by Marilyn Manson and appears on the album Mechanical Animals (1998).

They slit our throats
Like we were flowers
And our milk has been devoured
When you want it, goes away too fast
Times you hate it, always seem to last
Just remember when you think you're free
The crack inside your fucking heart is me

I wanna outrace the speed of pain
For another day
And I, I wanna outrace the speed of pain
For another day

I wish I could sleep
But I can't lay on my back
Cause there's a knife for everyday
That I've known you

When you want it, goes away too fast
Times you hate it, always seem to last
Just remember when you think you're free
The crack inside your fucking heart is me

I wanna outrace the speed of pain
For another day
And I, I wanna outrace the speed of pain
For another day

Lie to me
Cry to me
Give to me I would

Lie with me
Die with me
Give to me I would

Keep all your secrets wrapped in dead hair
Always
Keep all your secrets wrapped in dead hair
Always

Lie to me
Cry to me
Give to me I would

Lie with me
Die with me
Give to me I would

Hope that we die holding hands
Always
Hope that we die holding hands
Always
Hope that we die holding hands
