My Manic and I Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

He wants to die in a lake in Geneva
The mountains can cover the shape of his nose
He wants to die where nobody can see him
But the beauty of his death will carry on so
I dont believe him

He greets me with kisses when good days deceive him
And sometimes were scorned and sometimes I believe him
And sometimes Im convinced, my friends think Im crazy
Get scared and call him but hes usually hazy

At one in the morning, day is not ended
By two he is scared that sleep is no friend
And by four he will drink but he cannot feel it
Sleep will not come because sleep does not will it
And I dont believe him, morning is mocking me

Ill wander the streets, avoiding them eats
Til the ring on my finger slips to the ground
A gift to the gutter, a gift to the city
The veins of which have broken me down
And I dont believe him, morning is mocking me

Oh, the Gods that he believes never fail to amaze me
He believes in the love of his God of all things
But I find him wrapped up in all manner of sins
The drugs that deceive him and the girls that believe him

I cant control you, I dont know you well
These are the reasons I think that youre ill
I cant control you, I dont know you well
These are the reasons I think that youre ill

And since last that we parted
Last that I saw him down by a river
Silent and hardened
Morning was mocking us, blood hit the sky
I was just happy, my manic and I

He couldnt see me, the sun was in his eyes
And birds were singing to calm us down
And birds were singing to calm us down

And Im sorry young man, I cannot be your friend
I dont believe in a fairytale end
I dont keep my head up all of the time
I find it dull when my heart meets my mind

And I hardly know you, I think I can tell
These are the reasons I think that we're ill
I hardly know you, I think I can tell
These are the reasons I think that I'm ill

And the Gods that he believes never fail to disappoint me
The Gods that he believes never fail to disappoint me

My nihilist, my happy man, my manic and I
Have no plans to move on

But birds are singing to calm us down
And birds are singing to calm us down
