And I'd love you to notice
I'm devoted
To destroy for no one
Now it's that time again to take revenge
On all the debutantes and their friends
The bitter charlemagnes so self-absorbed
The bodily remains such a bore

Hey, yeah
Was I good enough to break you
Hey, yeah

And all I see is empty
'Cause now, I'm one of them
So adored
The slink of impotence
That money can afford
We know, who you are and where you live
Is your innocence all that you can give

Hey, yeah
Was I good enough to break you
Hey, yeah

In the back of the car
The angel dust was given back to the stars, stars

Hey, yeah
Was I good enough to break you
Hey, yeah

And in this fall from grace
We'll meet again
Another time another place
I've been deep down in you and me
Let's see where we can go
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Angels, barbed wire
Fuck you, desire
