Heart - Shaped Box Lyrics

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of 'Your Highness', I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Hey! Wait! I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice, your advice, your advice

This song is about a Heart-Shaped box that Courtney gave him, which had a porceilan doll in it i believe (because he had an obsession with dolls) I know this from the biography 'Heavier than Heaven' x

This version, the original version, is SO much better than the Evanescence....same goes for the Evanescence cover of Zero.

Listen, the insterments are real and you just aren't used to hearing songs as good as this, so before you say stuff like that, think about it

awesome analogy of one drawn to rebirth through the wound then, unhappy with it all, not wanting to live anymore.
