Now here I go,
Hope I don't break down,
I won't take anything,
I don't need anything.
Don't want to exist,
I can't persist,
Please stop before I do it again.

Just talk about nothing, let's talk about nothing,
Let's talk about no one, please talk about no one, someone, anyone...

You and me have a disease,
You affect me, you infect me,
I'm afflicted, you're addicted.
You and me, you and me.

I'm on the edge,
Get against the wall,
I'm so distracted,
I love to strike you.
Here's my confession,
You learned your lesson,
Stop me before I do it again.

Just talk about nothing, let's talk about nothing,
Let's talk about no one, please talk about no one, someone, anyone...

You and me have a disease,
You affect me, you infect me,
I'm afflicted, you're addicted.
You and me, you and me.

You're clear - as a heavy lead curtain I want to drill you - like an ocean,
We can work it out, I've been running out, now I'm running out.
Don't be mad about it, baby...

You and me have a disease,
You affect me (I want to tie you), you infect me (Crucify you).
I'm afflicted (Kneel before you), you're addicted (Revile your body).

You and me (You and me) have a disease (We're made in heaven),
You affect me (I want to take you), you infect me (I want to break you),
I'm afflicted (Supplicate you), you're addicted (With thorny roses).

You and me (You and me), have a disease (are incurable),
You affect me (I want to bathe you), you infect me (In holy water),
I'm afflicted (I want to kill you), you're addicted (Upon the altar).

You and me, you and me...
