You are the adrenaline rushing through my veins
Stimulate my heart, heavy crystalline
You are the sulphur extinguished by the flame
You are everything to me, all this in your name

Oh, walking in your blue coat, weeping admiral
All the twisted cellars they had to hand your name
Ended all that's static in a myth of sin
Mirror minor static pale adrenaline

Take it
Ah, take it that day you said to me
"It could never be", say the hour of sea to seep
Have you said Godspeed?

Love is a vampire, energy of dead
Love is like a boomerang, comin' back again
On a rack of red leather, on a rack of skin and sin
Tell me how to pale in adrenaline

And you said to me, "It could never be"
Say the hour of sea to seep
And you said to me
Have you said Godspeed?

I could make it all
All the twisted sand and foam
I'll never, ever return
I could make it, make it all

I'm walking, follow me down the twisted stair
Stuck inside a memory shot and shot again
Hand upon a railin', courtin' fate and fate
We're sailin', sailin', sailin' sailin'
Down a black, black river and I plunge right in
And I plunge right in, in adrenaline, in adrenaline

I move inside my vein
Ah, you're the speed I need
Throw the pistol in
Oh, your love's a vampire

Comin' in to suck
Stop, stop, stop, stop
Oh, I fell and fell and fell
Down, down, down, down
Oh, I'm gonna duck

Ivan Kral; Patti Smith
