Lyrics
You're the buyer or the seller,
makes you want what you can't have,
I'm glad I made you cry,
Makes you go where you can't go,
Makes you want what you can't have,
Desire
Don't think, x4
Don't buy,
Don't think, x3
Buying the moment,
Sometimes I want to die in my bed,
All I can think about is "When are we leaving?",
Everytime I think of you I want a cigarette,
Man chooses himself,
Hero with a thousand faces,
It's the third night and the walls are shaking,
Boys buying boys,
Pleasure bringing pain, it's all the same,
I put my hand near my mouth so I know I'm still breathing,
So we joke about the TV set,
Calling it the "eye of Hell",
I would love to have people see what I see,
I would love to be a pillar of strength in my community,
A little order, a little grace,
Something new to fill up this place,
Live a thousand lives by picture,
Mark, this song is for you,
I'm a lousy lover - I give but never take,
Makes you go where you can't go, makes you want what you can'thave,
(repeats)
Live a thousand lives by picture
