No Matter (clip & Lyrics)

She calls to me, a pretty face,
like cigarettes and cocaine,
from a distant place, so far away.
I spent my days on, one-fifteenth
half awake, never able to sleep or dream.

Because I learned at the age of thirteen
a dead man's wounds do not bleed
No matter how much it hurts
No matter how much it hurts
No matter how much it hurts
oh it hurts, oh mama it hurts.

Alcohol and amphetamines,
a carousel in a devil dream,
round and round, up and down,
this whole damn city's a not-so-
merry-go-round. I'm never lost,
but never found. I'm never lost,
but never found.

Because I learned on one-hundred and third,
the quick and the wet don't get burned,
No matter how much it hurts
No matter how much it hurts
No matter how much it hurts
oh it hurts, oh mama it hurts.
But I'll be fine.
