lyrics

Can you gauge the light in my eyes in the dark
If there's any there I'd be surprised but I can hope
Glimmers I've been holding on to feebly for these years
Stopping me from fragmenting my mind

I am both beauty and the beast
Equally beautiful and beastly
Curl my lips and twirl my hair
And destroy you in a heartbeat

I act this way to seamlessly blend in with what surrounds me
It isn't hard to replicate the blandness of this town
I keep to myself these delightful thoughts of death and torture
I strive to be good but my sharpened knife craves blood.

I am both beauty and the beast
Equally beautiful and beastly
Curl my lips and twirl my hair
And destroy you in a heartbeat

Doted on for most my life at first I was bewildered
Pretty dresses compliments I rarely found the words
To express my boredom with the whims of this existence
The only solace I could find was death to those I kissed

I'm trying to be good but there seems nothing of importance
Odds and ends in woven lives to me they make no sense
I try so hard to end my sprees but the taste of iron sates me
With capture surely imminent I'm certain I deserve it

I am both beauty and the beast
Equally beautiful and beastly
Curl my lips and twirl my hair
And destroy you in a heartbeat
