Tourniquet Lyrics

by Marilyn Manson

She's made of hair and bone and little teeth
And things I cannot speak
She comes on like a crippled plaything
Spine is just a string

I wrapped our love in all this foil
Silver-tight like spider legs
I never wanted it to ever spoil
But flies will lay their eggs

Take your hatred out on me
Make your victim my head
You never ever believed in me
I am your tourniquet

Prosthetic synthesis with butterfly
Sealed up with virgin stitch
If it hurts baby, please tell me
Preserve the innocence

I never wanted it to end like this
But flies will lay their eggs

Take your hatred out on me
Make your victim my head
You never ever believed in me
I am your tourniquet

What I wanted
What I needed
I got from me

What I wanted
What I needed
I got from me

Take your hatred out on me
Make your victim my head
You never ever believed in me
I am your tourniquet

Take out
Take out
From me
I am your tourniquet

Not even I believed in me
I am your tourniquet
