Arto Hietala: Sticking The Needles


STICKING THE NEEDLES

It's all in the way that you use 'em
Doctor said with a grin
Well, my madhouse lover
is gonna see me again
I worship the ground she walks on
at the altar of the dead and the paranoid
She say I been seeing other doctors
well, she's been sticking her needles
into someone else

I got seven lizards and a python
and they get along just fine
They remind me of my family
during the better times
Although I could never be that strong
The doctor just could not fill that void
Still she say I spend my money on other doctors
while she's been sticking her needles
inside someone else

One barrel empty
Another round ready to go
Standing at the street corner
assessing the damage done
Sirens wailing in the distance
while I pack up and move on
She say I been seeing the wrong doctors
well, she's been sticking her needles
inside someone else

She say I spend my money on other doctors
while she keeps sticking the needles
into someone else
