"Gods and Monsters"

In the land of Gods and Monsters,
I was an Angel
Living in the garden of evil.
Screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed
Shining like a fiery beacon.

You got that medicine I need –
Fame, liquor, love – give it to me slowly.
Put your hands on my waist, do it softly.
Me and God, we don't get along so now I sing.

No one's gonna take my soul away;
I'm living like Jim Morrison,
Headed towards a fucked up holiday.
Motel sprees, sprees, and I'm singing
"Fuck yeah, give it to me. This is heaven. What I truly
want."

It's innocence lost.
Innocence lost.

In the land of Gods and Monsters
I was an Angel
Looking to get fucked hard.
Like a groupie incognito posing as a real singer,
Life imitates art.

You got that medicine I need.
Dope, shoot it up, straight to the heart, please.
I don't really wanna know what's good for me.
"God's dead," I said. "Baby, that's alright with me"

No one's gonna take my soul away;
I'm living like Jim Morrison.
Headed towards a fucked up holiday.
Motel sprees, sprees, and I'm singing
"Fuck yeah, give it to me. This is heaven, what I truly
Want'

It's innocence lost.
Innocence lost

When you talk it's like a movie, and you're making me
Crazy -
Cause life imitates art.
If I get a little prettier can I be your baby?
You tell me, "Life isn't that hard."

No one's gonna take my soul away.
I'm living like Jim Morrison,
Headed towards a fucked up holiday.
Motel sprees, sprees, and I'm singing
"Fuck yeah, give it to me this is heaven. What I truly
Want."

It's innocence lost
Innocence lost"
