For the people who play too damn much Vampire: The Masquerade.

Angry Candy
© Allison Lonsdale 1998
Live at Lestat's, Disc One, Track 1 (live), Disc Two, Track 14 (ectophile mix)

The poison comes in such a pretty bottle
Much nicer than the water or the wine
And if your life has left you starved for beauty
You'll drink it because it seems like a good idea at the time

        If you spend all of your coins on angry candy
        You'll have none left for roses or for bread
        Would you have second thoughts about the garments that you weave
        If you knew you'd have to wear them when you're dead

It's lovely and it's fun to see things burning
Much faster than it is to see them built
If life has left you hungry for adventure
It's worth a lot to have your taste of sin without the guilt

        If you fill your belly up with angry candy
        You'll have no room for what grows on the vine
        Would you be more careful of the darkness that you swallow
        If you knew it blinds you to the things that shine

                When you dream of what it's like to live forever
                Do you think you'll be eternally nineteen
                And the cars will just get faster while the soundtrack just gets louder
                And you still can't tell me what your hungers mean

                When you see the whole damn world in terms of power
                And all that you know how to do is fight
                And the future is a boot coming down on a human face forever
                Then the angry candy's emptied you of light

You can choose to fill that hollow place with meaning
Or you can choose to fill it up with blood
Everything you dream about has consequences somehow
And you are all you will ever know of Satan and of God

        If you waste all of your time on angry candy
        There are things you need to hold that you'll never touch
        If life has left you hungry it's so sweet against the tongue
        That you canít believe you've eaten quite so much

The poison comes in such a pretty bottle
Much nicer than the water or the wine
And if your life has left you starved for beauty
You'll drink it because it seems like a good idea at the time
