    Lyrics

    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 don't believe him

    He greets me with kisses when good days deceive him
    And sometimes we're scorned and sometimes I believe him.
    And sometimes I'm convinced my friends think I am crazy,
    Get scared and call him but he's usually hazy

    At one in the morning the 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 don't believe him
    Morning is mocking me

    I'll 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 don't 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 can't control you, I don't know you well
    These are the reasons I think that you're ill.
    I can't control you, I don't know you well
    These are the reasons I think that you're ill.

    And since last that we parted, since 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 couldn't 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 I'm sorry young man I cannot be your friend
    I don't believe in a fairy tale end
    I don't 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
    The birds are singing to calm us down
    And birds are singing to calm us down
