It's you that I adore You will always be my whore You'll be a mother to my child And a child to my heart
We must never be apart We must never be apart Lovely girl you're the beauty in my world Without you there aren't reasons left to find
And I'll pull your crooked teeth You'll be perfect just like me You'll be a lover in my bed And a gun to my head
We must never be apart We must never be apart Lovely girl you're the murder in my world Dressing coffins for the souls I've left to die
Drinking mercury To the mystery of all That you should ever leave behind In time
In you see I dirty In you I count stars In you I feel so pretty In you I taste God In you I feel so hungry In you I crash cars We must never be apart
Drinking mercury To the mystery of all that you should ever seek to find Lovely girl you're the murder in my world Dressing coffins for the souls I've left behind In time
We must never be apart
And you'll always be my whore Cause you're the one that I adore And I'll pull your crooked teeth You'll be perfect just like me In you I feel so dirty In you I crash cars In you I feel so pretty In you I taste God We must never be apart

Billy said during Muchmusic's Intimate and Interactive that he had to fight to have the scene of the video crew in it. He said that he wanted to show that it was all an illusion.
Song Secrets: -At 1:38 you can hear like a doorbell sound. -Mikko
Other Info: Drums by former touring drummer, Matt Walker. Additional programming by Bon Harris. During the Adore premiere, Jeff Woods said that he thought that they "came up with the best entity in terms of a single, Ava Adore....". Billy said,"Well, when you have song where the first lines are 'It's you that I adore, you'll always be my whore', well, you know where we are going with that one. Corgan also said that he really liked the song because it it's one of those songs where they tried to find a different way to rock. He also said that he likes the beat, and it's kind of interesting because he can't really compare it to anything. "I don't know where that came from."
