pose with a ciggarete just to see who lights it first
aw love you didn't think the pirouettes would lift your skirt?
on the phone with a close friend who's name you don't know
something bigger came up baby
so sad you cant go
it's amazing what they let you get away with in dim light
and it's crazy watching you go pale in stage light
the handbills the fan mail
the photo that they shoot
you show up just to look at them lookin' at you
you've got that gold touch
you've got that mad rush of the bored and over-lonely
adored by young strangers
a stranger to old friends
you came up quick and now you've got the bad bends
can't remember which houses you live in which ones you visit
business is different than what you envisioned, isn't it?
all this cause and not an effect yet
just cause and percocet
bump the set till god can hear it
and quell the fear that i'm feeling that heaven is quite deaf.
and all i hear is king me, love me, watch me
did he love me
honey kiss me
is she off me
naughty you've been naughty ladi dadi move your body
or use you body language
A: because it's easy to read
B: because you're stuck in anxious-ville
C: you don't speak easily
yeah, we can be mind fuck buddies or the beast with two backpacks
you just got to trust somebody after you suck somebody into your laugh track
your audience is crying
and i know you've noticed
you're focusing in circles dear
i see your lips moving but all i hear is
does he still love me?
why don't he know that i'm in pain?
why dont he still need me?
why don't he know that i can change?
take steps like i don't wanna wake ya
not a sound from the floorboard
four more steps to the door
don't look back dont get shook
don't act so took
don't tack another sorry on
time is gone for that just go
maybe cause the time was wrong
up in the head but the heart's a strong one
that's what i shoulda said
woulda coulda but the door still creeks
please just don't speak
these dreams need sleep and i woke
to a need to relieve not cope
hope don't float
hope sinks low
hope breeds free with the demons below
faith is a razorblade you can raise to the face of any hangman that gives you the rope
