Called a curse in the cradle
Loving mother, unstable
Daddy gone, under the table
But you found a song in your heart
So you learned how to fight
How to starve
How to survive when the others blocked your light
You learned to see beyond the stars

The curse of small desires
Easily acquired
It's time to set your gasoline heart on fire

Kill your demons
Kill 'em dead
In your mirror, in your bed
In your heart, in your head
Don't you look good in red
Slay your devils, kill 'em all
Take your throne, paint the walls
And if you make it out alive
Hold that bloody head up high
Don't you look good in red
Don't you look good in red

Is there more beyond those plains?
You cut your hair, changed your name
Left a note as you escaped
To thine own self be true
But there was no gold in those hills
No platinum in those pretty pills
Just werewolves tossing dollar bills
And the wine dark sea of Malibu

The curse of small desires
Easily acquired
It's time to set your gasoline heart on fire

Kill your demons
Kill 'em dead
In your mirror, in your bed
In your heart, in your head
Don't you look good in red
Slay your devils, kill 'em all
Take your throne, paint the walls
And if you make it out alive
Hold that bloody head up high
Don't you look good in red?
Don't you look good in red

No one's coming to save you
No one's coming to save you
Swing that sword that you made
With the pain that they gave you
Like the pain is gonna save you
(Pain is gonna save you)

Kill your demons
Kill 'em dead
In your mirror, in your bed
In your heart, in your head
Don't you look good in red
Slay your devils, kill 'em all
Take your throne, paint the walls
And if you make it out alive
Hold that bloody head up high
Don't you look good in red
Don't you look good in red
