Mistress of the Vein (Complicated Man album)
Lyrics
MISTRESS OF THE VEIN

Isolated from the mob
She wakes with haunted screams
Her mistress of the vein does rob
The beauty of her dreams

She's got the slightest touch
So gentle yet so obscene
Everyday she rides the golden crutch
A slave to the wicked queen

(Chorus)
Floating / yes she's floating
And the crowd goes rushing by
drifting / now she's drifting
Our baby girl, she only wants to die
Painless / oh painless
Her body now is just a deadly ghost
Clueless / we're so clueless
Our baby girl just shot herself a double devil dose

Such thunderous haunting guilt
Runs naked through her veins
Without the slightest sound
It conquers all her pain

She's ready now to fade
Into that mindless milky haze
Dark angels sing a lullaby
While she gives her soul away

BRIDGE
She straps the leather belt / yanks it tight around her arm
She's on her way to heaven once the poison weaves its charm
She's shooting to escape / one nightmare at a time
No regrets, no tears as the poison takes her life

(Chorus)
Floating / she's floating
And the crowd goes rushing by
drifting / she's drifting
Our baby girl, she only wants to die
Oh she's painless / oh so painless
Watch as her body turns into a deadly ghost
Clueless / we're so clueless
Our baby girl just shot herself a double devil dose
