(adj. poor or showing extreme poverty)


Down in the cold
I have felt the heat.
Living life so old,
But humanity I canít beat.
Mirrors in the darkness
So that I might see,
All sins, nothing less.

No,
I donít want your sympathy.
I want everything.
I want it all.
Iím taking everything.

Blood stained afterglow
Give it a whirl.
She wonít know any better,
Not that little girl.
Old books on an old shelf,
All the same, replace yourself.
But Iím no me.

No,
I donít want your sympathy.
I want everything.
I want it all.
Iím taking everything.

Iím tired of having nothing.
I just want a little bit more.
Surely you must have something,
You just donít need anymore.
I donít know what else to say,
Iíve got special needs,
And I need everything I see.

No,
I donít want your sympathy.
I want everything
I want it all.
Iím taking everything.

Itís all mine!
Itís all mine!
You canít have it!
Itís all mine!

Give me everything!
I want you and everything!
I want everything!
Every damn thing is mine!

All mine!
