The sick rose
O rose thou art sick 
The invisible worm 
That flies in the night 
In the howling storm
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy

You don't know how you took it
You just know what you got
Oh Lordy you've been stealing
From the thieves and you got caught
In the headlights of a stretch car
You're a star

Dressing like your sister
Living like a tart
They don't know what you're doing
Babe, it must be art
You're a headache in a suitcase
You're a star

Oh no, don't be shy
You don't have to go blind
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

They want you to be Jesus
They'll go down on one knee
But they'll want their money back
If you're alive at thirty-three
And you're turning tricks
With your crucifix
You're a star

Oh no, don't be shy
You don't have to go blind
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me
