The Cure - The Figurehead lyrics

Sharp and open - Leave me alone
And sleeping less every night
As the days become heavier and weighted
Waiting in the cold light
A noise, a scream tears my clothes,
As the figurines tighten w/ spiders inside them
And dust on the lips of a vision of Hell
I laughed in the mirror for the first time in a year

A hundred other words blind me with your purity
Like an old painted doll in the throes of dance
I think about tomorrow
Please let me sleep, as I slip down the window
Freshly squashed fly - You mean nothing, (x2)

I can lose myself in Chinese art & American girls
All the time - Lose me in the dark
Please do it right - Run into the night
I will lose myself tomorrow - Crimson pain
My heart explodes - My memory in a fire
& someone will listen, at least for a short while

I can never say no to anyone but you...
Too many secrets - Too many lies
Writhing with hatred
Too many secrets - Please make it good tonight
But the same image haunts me in sequence
In despair of time

I will never be clean again
I touched her eyes - Pressed my stained face
I will never be clean again
Touch her eyes - Press my stained face
I will never be clean again (x4)
