Carnivore

If true love is blind then please tell me why
If I give you more I see you devour me like some kind of carnivore

I’ve stopped believin’
That your designs on me were all innocent
Still a ways to go before I stop bleedin’
From when you tore out my heart
And tried to feed it back to me

If true love is blind
Then please tell me why
If I give you more
I see you devour me like some kind of carnivore

This love is not all that it seems
Too fast, too hard, now I’m on my knees
And I am begging you but you’re some kind of carnivore
You cut me right down to the bone
But I’m still faithfully devoted
Just like the ones before me
You’re some kind of carnivore

The desire started when I fell right into your ruse
It hit my lips, the taste, the kiss,
Oh shit, I can’t resist, or take it slower
Now it’s just not the same, is this game just out of time?
Am I out of love? Or a just certain je ne sais quoi?

This love is not all that it seems
Too fast, too hard, now I’m on my knees
And I am begging you but you’re some kind of carnivore
You cut me right down to the bone
But I’m still faithfully devoted
Just like the ones before me
You’re some kind of carnivore

If true love is blind then please tell me why
If I give you everything I have right down to the dollar
Then you’ll just run away and leave me calling out to you
Wish in one hand and shit in the other
Who can tell the difference when you feed me all those lies?
Oh, I can’t keep up with your appetite

This love is not all that it seems
Too fast, too hard, now I’m on my knees
And I am begging you but you’re some kind of carnivore
You cut me right down to the bone
But I’m still faithfully devoted
Just like the ones before me
You’re some kind of carnivore
