I cannot spend another night in this home,
I close my eyes and take a breath real slow.
The consequence is if I leave I'm alone,
But what's the difference when you beg for love?

As I run through glass in the street,
Kerosene hearts,
Carry the name that my father gave me
And take the face of the world.

'Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat!
With heaven above you, there's hell over me.

I met a girl who never looked so alone,
Like sugar water in your mouth lukewarm.
She tied a cherry stem for me with her tongue,
We fell in love and now we're both alone.

'Cause I don't need any more friends
Another kiss like a fire on pavement,
We'll burn it down till the end.

Oh, oh
This is a wasteland, my only retreat!
With heaven above you, there's hell over me.
The water is rusted, the air is unclean
And there for a second I feel free.
This is a wasteland, my only retreat!

I waited all this night to honor you and say
"I know it's hard, but who are you to fall apart on me?!"

This is a wasteland, my only retreat!
With heaven above you, there's hell over me.

'Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat!
With heaven above you, there's hell over me.
You said "What about us?" Well, what about me?
Hang from the gallows asleep in the rain.
'Cause This is a wasteland, my only retreat!

Paralyze me!
Don't let me, jump don't let me fall!
