Sanity Assassin

Featuring Peter Murphy and Trent Reznor, this was recorded live on June 7th, 2006, backstage at Ampitheater Atlanta, Georgia. It is the only version of this song. During the performance the drum track is created using the same beat set as the studio version of "Letting You", albeit slightly distorted. Samples from the beginning of "Just Like You Imagined" are manipulated in the intro.

Lyrics

   Sinister echoes clutching at straws
   Letter boxes screaming
   You try to pin him to the wall
   You end up on the ceiling
   Locked in a dome
   The shadows flicker by
   He's the madcap pusher
   Delerium the drug he's dealing
    
   He drops a capsule in your drink
   And spikes your dreams with madness
    
   He's the sniper in the hills
   Hiding the holes in your head
   He's the poison in your poison
   The razor in your head
   Hanging on a picture
   Eyelid needle and thread
   You empty yourself once again
   But he's always one step ahead
   He whispers in your ear
   Was it nothing that you said
   He's walking in your sleep now
   He keeps your fat paranoia well-fed
   
   He drops a capsule in your drink
   And spikes your dreams with madness
   
   The sanity assassin
   Stays up all night stalking
   The sanity assassin
   Picks off victims like flies
   The sanity assassin
   Let his fingers do the walking
   The sanity assassin
   The crack shot between your eyes
   He's got you in his sights
    
   He drops a capsule in your drink
   And spikes your dreams with madness

   The razor in your head
   He's the poison in your poison
   
   Drops a capsule in your drink
