i never told you what i do for a living lyrics – my chemical romance

“i never told you what i do for a living”

stay out of the light
or the photograph that i gave you
you can say a prayer if you need to
or just get in line and i’ll grieve you
can i meet you, alone
another night and i’ll see you
another night and i’ll be you
some other way to continue
to hide my face

[chorus:]
another knife in my hands
a stain that never comes off the sheets
clean me off
i’m so dirty babe
the kind of dirty where the water never cleans off the clothes
i keep a book of the names and those

only go so far ’til you bury them
so deep and down we go

touched by angels, though i fall out of grace
i did it all so maybe i’d live this every day

[chorus:]
another knife in my hands
a stain that never comes off the sheets
clean me off
i’m so dirty babe
it ain’t the money and it sure as h*ll ain’t just for the fame
it’s for the bodies i claim and lose

only go so far ’til you bury them
so deep and down we go

down

and down we go
and down we go
and down we go
and we all fall down

i tried
i tried

and we’ll all dance alone to the tune of your death
we’ll love again, we’ll laugh again
and it’s better off this way

and never again, and never again
they gave us two shots to the back of the head
and we’re all dead now.

well never again, and never again
they gave us two shots to the back of the head
and we’re all dead now.

well i tried
one more night
one more night
well i’m laughin’ out, cryin’ out, laughin’ out loud
i tried, well i tried, well i tried,
’cause i tried, but i lied
i lied

i tried
i tried
i tried, well

and we’ll love again, we’ll laugh again
we’ll cry again and we’ll dance again
and it’s better off this way
so much better off this way
i can’t clean the blood off the sheets in my bed

and never again, and never again
they gave us two shots to the back of the head
and we’re all dead now
