Assassins (Loveless, Painless)
The cars stop at signs with headlights
and they see me and they know
that this street’s filled with assassins
and I’ll be the first to go.
They’ve got red beams, darts, and arrows
drawing circles on my heart.
They’ve got raincoats black and bloody
but they don’t know where to start
’cause this girl’s not like the others;
she’s not been in love before.
She’s got nothing here to give up
so what do we need her for?
So the rain pours songs of heartbreaks
as sweet darkness lets me go.
In this street filled with assassins,
guess I’ll be the last to know.
