My little precious thing
How come you laid to waste
So unfamiliar and pale
What's happened to your face

It stares at me through your eyes
This crystal fortress, so cold it's become
It speaks to me with your voice of an angel
That used to to sing me to sleep

Look at me now, what do you see?
A lunatic soul lost in it's sick dreams
Urging to find it's only retreat
My precious thing, where do you hide?
Are you still here or have you died?
Forgive my sins, replace the alien

Vanish, you sleazy plague
She must be somewhere near
Reborn her in this shell
Leave you disgusting freak

How come so suddenly
You have become what I feared the most
One alone I ain't worth a thing
Somehow I need to do something

I'll beat you to death, I'll burn your lips
I will dig inside and chew the meat
And don't you dare to cry her tears
Get the fuck out, you parasite,
She may be gone but the shell is mine

Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter,
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter, crumble

Your true beauty lied between it's golden walls
Your lullabies came out of those rotten lungs
Your true love poured out of those cloudy eyes

Finally here you are
So fragile
One gentle touch and I lose you...
