lyrics

You think that you’re just being clever
But you got holes in your alibis
You said I’d do the same but I swear I’d never
I’ve got far too much pride
You’re way too hard to tame, a human hurricane
A place where nothing grows
And like a fireball you could ignite us all
But you’d rather slowly devour me

There was once a time when I thought you’d give more
I built a house out of lies and you blew down the door
You’re a well fed lion that steals scraps from the table
Just for fun and games
Until you’re bored again

You think that everybody is watching
But you’re alone in delinquency
You only cry cause baby wants it’s bottle
A god in virtual reality
With seven deadly sins you somehow count to ten
I need to turn you off
And like a dying sun you need to drag someone
With you down into your misery

There was once a time when I thought you’d give more
I built a house out of lies and you blew down the door
You’re a well fed lion that steals scraps from the table
Just for fun and games
Until you’re bored again

Further, deep into your darkest desires
You drag me down, drag me down
You stick to me like napalm

Ooooo ooo ooo oooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo oooo ooooooooo ooooooo oooo oooooo (Oooooo ooooo oooooo ooooo)

There was once a time when I thought you’d give more
I built a house out of lies and you blew down the door
You’re a well fed lion that steals scraps from the table
Just for fun and games
Until you’re bored again
