Voltaire Dead Girls Lyrics

Last updated: 08/28/2011 11:00:00 AM

I have been in this line of work for a long time
And I have never seen anything so strange
It's so peculiar
Its all so deranged
See for yourself now

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury
step right up and view the freak
we caught him red handed down by the morgue
where he sleeps
and if you think that that's disgusting
Well, wait 'til you hear this
I never could do it justice
So hear it in his own words

Dead girls like me
Dead girls like me
Can't you see?

I don't expect you to understand me
I am not an ordinary man
and I have seen things with these eyes
you'd never comprehend
see for yourself now

take those living women
they have never shown me any kindness of any kind no
its not my fault i look this way
I try to talk to them
they look at me they walk away
so really is it so strange that

dead girls like me
can't you see?
only dead girls like me
oh,
dead girls like me
can't you see?
only dead girls don't walk away from me
sad as it seems

have you ever tasted love like this,
cool and smooth?
and have you ever been accepted unconditionally?
have you ever loved someone who didn't hurt you, didn't harm you?

There's no pain and there's no pressure
no verbal humiliation
there's no fear and there's no shame
there's no pulse now is it so strange?

dead girls like me
can't you see?
only dead girls like me
oh,
dead girls like me
can't you see?
only dead girls don't walk away from me
sad as it seems

Gotta love Voltaire | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/27/11

I've been listening to Voltaire's music for a while now and have enjoyed every single second of kooky, creepy and just plain f'd up lyrics that this one-man talent-fest has come up with. I agree with the other reviewers below, Voltaire should be much more famous. The problem is, there aren't enough people like us who love dark humour, and certainly not enough people who love the alternative genre of music. Instead, popular music has turned into beiber and gaga. GO TO HELL!

Gotta love Voltaire.



OMFG! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/10

I was just looking for some kind of good music. It's sad Voltaire isn't very famous. I wish he was more famous, and we can do it. Use every excuse you can imagine to show some cool songs from him. I'm tired of pop being popular (I've made a joke =D)



brilliant | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/30/10

voltaire continues to astound me with lively(in this case, deadly) dark music, with a mockingly graceful sound the ears of many will be thoroughly enticed. high five. wahaha i must return to my cold bride....

I just started listening to this band, and I instantly fell in love with the sound and lyrics. Some of them just make you want to get up and sing and dance (while trying to ignore the strange looks your getting exspecially if your singing "The Headless Waltz" I really like this song even if it does talk about Nechrophilia. It makes you feel sry for the ol' chap.
