lyrics

Courtney’s in the dark
Twenty feet from fame
And Kurt is the one
She’s his Luna moth
Come to fan the flame
Of their binary sun
She will tag along
Until he’s made his name
And while he’s shooting up
She won’t leave him alone

’Cause she’s riding his asteroid
Till he crashes and burns and end of story
Leaping into his void
In a blaze of glory
Riding his asteroid
And she won’t have to hold on too much longer
Whatever is not destroyed
Gonna make her stronger
She’s the go wrong-monger to the stars

Monica’s a lark
Close but no cigar
She’ll never be queen
In his borrowed light
Even from afar
She mustn’t be seen
Bill just sets her up
Like a rising star
Until he lets her fall
She won’t leave him alone

’Cause she’s riding his asteroid
Till she crashes and burns and end of story
Leaping into his void
In a blaze of glory
She’s riding his asteroid
And she won’t have to hold on too much longer
Whatever is not destroyed
Doesn’t make her stronger
He’s the do wrong-monger of the stars

His gravity pulls us
To have it he lulls us
Her cavity rules us
Depravity fools us

And we’re riding their asteroid
Till it crashes and burns and end of story
Leaping into their void
In a blaze of glory
We’re riding their asteroid
But do we have to keep holding on forever?
’Cause it doesn’t take Sigmund Freud
To see what pulls the lever
Death is their life’s endeavor
And it’s time to sever theirs from ours
