Chekhov's Gun - Brick lyrics
She stops the car, and steps outside
Brick on the gas, and he's bound and tied
"You've had this coming," is all she can say
He laughs in response as he speeds away
And while the car approaches
The cliff she simply
Smiles and walks away.
He tells her "you can't escape me yet"
He tells her "You'll have to steal again"
Looking around her disheveled apartment
He tells her "you need to let me take control"
"Here, grab my hand, I can lift you over"
She trusted him then (she had no choice)
Within an hour, the guards will notice
Within an hour, she'll pretend he's gone
"You can escape, I've figured it out
There's just enough time while they take you outside
I'll take out the guards,make sure there's a scene
He smiles at her, her anger subsides
"I did it," he says through his twisted grin
"I did it" and she realized what he meant
I need your help, and you need mine
I did it, and they all believed it was you"
She asks him "How'd you get into my cell?"
She asks him "What are you doing in here?"
She stands in a panic, back to the wall
She asks him but she knows who he is n
Her hand breaks the glass, and she's through the window
No alarm sounds, just as she expected
Room to room, looking for valuables
Finally stumbling upon the br ick
"This is not who I am, you manipulated me"
"I only made you do what you knew had to be done"
"But why this house? This brick? This family?"
She asked a man who had never been.
