She cuts you once, she cuts you twice
The wound is so fresh you can taste the blood
You've been bought, you've been sold
But you stand there pleadin',
'Cause you deep down want some more
It's such a clever masquerade
You don't even see the blade
She cuts you hard, she cuts you deep,
She's so fascinating that you're still there waiting
You've been slashed in the face
You want to run away
'Cause she gives you what you need
While she searches for the vein
You don't really mind the pain
She cuts you out, she cuts you down
But you won't do nothng
'Cause you know you love the knife
You've been locked outside the door
With your insides bleedin'
Then she says she needs affection
She's so good with her stiletto,
