  • There's a fire forming, not too far from here
    Along the east coast maybe, it resides in you, my dear
    Worn out on our courtesy, we've made our curtain calls
    Like vampire bats deprived of blood, into the New York City that we crawl

    And you've got a funny way of showing off your bathoom surgery
    You said you were just cooling down from plans of leaving me
    There's something I should tell you, for we may not have much time
    I've never met arms like yours

    The stars at night are big and bright
    Deep in your eyes, Miss Vincent
    You told me once I made you smile
    But we both know damn well I didn't
    I'm not much of a jester, but I'd test poisoned food for you
    Your majesty, you're royal blue
    I'm royalty, my king of pain

    There's a hard rain falling, flooding your attic, it's clear
    Can't put out the fire that resides in you, my dear
    There's something I should tell you, for we may not have much time
    I've never seen scars like yours

    The stars at night are big and bright
    Deep in your eyes, Miss Vincent
    You told me once I made you smile
    But we both know damn well I didn't
    I'm not much of a jester, but I'd test poisoned food for you
    Your majesty, you're royal blue
    I'm royalty, my king of pain

    The stars at night are big and bright
    Deep in your eyes, Miss Vincent
    You told me once I made you smile
    But we both know damn well I didn't
    I'm not much of a jester, but I'd test poisoned food for you
    Your majesty, you're royal blue
    I'm royalty, my king of pain
