BREAK
(Music:  "Precious Things", Tori Amos)

So I ran faster
But it caught me here
Yes my memories burn
Like the fire
In my seventh year
Running from the killer
Running from all the tears

These precious things
Let them bleed
Let them wash away
These precious things
Let them break their hold over me

She said "You're only a little boy
You can curse your parents' graves"
And I died
Or I thought so
I can't believe I woke up
And the man told me "Forget this...
You are Condor Joe"

I locked away the memories
Of those beautiful days
But the nightmares stayed
They wouldn't let me sleep
And I would wake up screaming

These precious things
Let them bleed
Let them wash away
These precious things
Let them break their hold over me

I remember, yes
It's the truth I know best
No one knew
But I knew
In my heart where I really came from
And I can't run
From the Nine Inch Nails and all the little secrets tucked inside the hearts of 
Every Nice Girl

These precious things
Let them bleed
Let them wash away
These precious things
Let them break
Let them wash away
These these precious things
Let them bleed now
Let them wash away
These these precious things
Let them break their hold over me

Precious ...
Precious ...
