Hunger, plunder, and nod
At peace when I can soothe my God
He’ll whip me till I’m tantalized
Till I’m bleeding right out of my eyes

This thunderous desire is pining
It’s moping at my pleasure shrine
Where Barbies in flames don’t scream
They still smile like they’re the prom queen

Oh now, feel that hunger

I love this firebrand
The singe as it’s removed from my back
Oh yes I know, I know who I am
Pounding nails into my hand


from Kiss Me Screaming, released January 1, 1996
