Scavenger
by Emilie Autumn

I am a scavenger
And I'll take what I need
This isn't personal
We've all got mouths to feed
Supply and demand... supply and demand...

I am a scavenger
A resurrectionist
Yes, I enjoy my work
I'm a perfectionist
Supply and demand... supply and demand...

One man's trash is another's treasure
One man's cash buys another's pleasure

I'll rob from the cradle
I'll rob from the grave
It's just human traffic
And I'm just a slave
To the medical community
They gave me my start
They pay by the part
So I'll throw in the heart

I am a scavenger;
a vulture if you will,
and if the price is right
I'm not adverse to kill
supply and demand... supply and demand...

I am a scavenger
And as you decompose
My time is running out
And my excitement grows
Supply and demand... supply and demand...

but surely you'll understand...

It isn't your diamonds that I'm after
But I'll take 'em
Don't mind if I do
They'll be nothing to you

It isn't your kisses that I need
But I'll take 'em
Why would we waste them
Why shouldn't I taste them

There's always one door you'll forget to lock
And I will be waiting
There's always one street that you know you shouldn't walk
And I will be waiting

Your loved ones may sleep upon your stone to prevent me
But I will be waiting
I will be waiting
Anticipating

I am a scavenger...
I am a scavenger...
I am a scavenger...
Supply and demand...
Supply and demand...
Supply and demand...
Supply and demand...
