Ravi can’t get off until he spots a moment of regret in his favourite pornstar’s face. Ravi waits for it lovingly.

lyrics

… And the hardest of all,
is to watch you turn to be defiled my love.
High drama baby, with the weight of the world,
streaming down your face,
and you fall like wormwood,
pixelated, upon your stage.

I’m sure you've got someone to keep your self esteem afloat,
with all the right lies and gestures, to keep a golden goose from choking,
or maybe you're alone and broken and slotted in to some safe cliche,
but I can't get through the week,
without your shame to comfort me,
I don't know you and I can't hurt you
(but) this is love ..
As pure…
As I…

I see poison swell in your throat.
(hold it in to cleanse us of our sins)
Down the hatch, past the holy ghost.
(hold it in to cleanse us of our…)

And you raise the dead, bite your lips, and they'll turn their heads.
You raise the dead, a simple twitch to kill suspicion.
You part the heavens baby, when you pull that trick, when you unravel.
But I can last through it all…

For the shadow between,
the urge and release,
is thick and bitter.
Death for hollow beasts.
Sick from the start,
just animals with credit cards.
Herded in by scum like you.
Cleaved and butchered by scum like me.

5 minutes from now, I won't feel a thing.
I’ll be vacant, washing my legs.
You'll be somewhere,
cashing another check.

5 minutes from now, I won’t feel a thing.
5 minutes from now…

You still raise the dead, but your skin's so tight, and your eyes are yellow.
You raise the dead, but your famous twitch can't hide its shadow.
All your tricks are stained with the sticky juice of desperation.
Where's your daddy now?

Wipe up and go to bed,
there are bills to pay before you’re dead.
Wipe up and go to bed,
there are bills to pay before you’re dead.
Wipe up and go to bed,
there are dues to pay before you’re dead.
Wipe up and go to bed,
there are dues to pay before you’re dead.
