I'm alone, I'm by myself, I
Love a girl, bad for my health
Seems in love to someone else, and I
(Love a girl bad for my heath)

Celebrated but undisturbed, about
Serenaded by the terrible, and I
Sounds obscene and he's never heard, am I
(Serenaded by the terrible)

A life of crime with a new life style
Desecration smile, desecration
Someone begs you got to be yourself
Desecration smile, desecration smile

Disintegrated by the rising sun
Rolling back another oblivion, and I
Like to think that I'm the number one, but I
(Rolling back another oblivion)

I want to leave but I just can't stop
Broken record only love I got
Heavy metal playing in your truck, for you
(Broken record only love you got)

A life of crime with a new life style
Desecration smile, desecration
Someone begs you got to be yourself
Desecration smile, desecration

Been in love, smiling struggle
Hard to know your beautiful it comes to you
Wind is blowing, down my throat
I really find just what you...

I've been here waiting for the part
Quick to finish but I'm slow to start
Love you better than the mellow dark
(Quick to finish but I'm slow to start)

A life of crime with a new life style
Desecration smile, desecration
Someone begs you got to be yourself
Desecration smile, desecration
Speak your line with new life style.
