Lyrics

(Grohl, Black backup)
I'm leaving my heart, a boy's heart 
I'm leaving it far behind 
I'm going for mine, I'm painting my lips 
Yeah, I'm getting my shoes shined 
I'm leaving my heart, my bleeding heart 
My shiny shoes, my rosy cheeks 
I cut out my heart, I open the door 
I'm so happy without my heart 
(Black) Now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
Without my heart 
(Black) I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
(Black) I'm the king of cruelty 

(Bowie) 
I believe my face, a girl's face 
I believe my face is one of a kind 
I point the stars and roll my eyes 
They poison my young mind 
Believe my face, the charming face 
My poison eyes, believe my eyes 
I roll up my sleeves, I rock on my heels 
But I'm nothing without my face 
(Gabrels) And now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
I'm lonely without my face 
(Gabrels) I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
I'm nothing without my face 
(Gabrels) But now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
(Gabrels) I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
(Gabrels) I'm the king of cruelty 
(Gabrels) I'm the king of cruelty 

(Black) 
And now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
And now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
And now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
(Black, down an octave) 
I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
And now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
And now I'm screaming "Oh my jewel" so happily 
I am a man and I am cruel, I'm the king of cruelty 
Now I'm screaming 
I am a man, I am 
Now I'm screaming -- LA! LA! 
Now I'm screaming
