oh don't sound so smug
as if anybody's gonna come
this is not my fault
and I don't wanna be no misspoke quote
bleed sex from this stone
you shot my feet - I walked to show
how many lives I'd live to be
now quid pro quo

pouring salt in to your wounds
I'd break your knees and starve your mood
my darling, I've got all night to make you plead

well I doubt you'd even bleed if I was you
and as vicious as you've been I've been it too
the only difference is I hear this silent coup
that you will hear in time

I sat alone on this old dock
my feet dangled out on the shore
and I watched my first sunrise and I said,
"no...I won't go...oh not today"
then the world burst to flames
and I was whole


last call on the morning sun
and I'll be leaving town
last call and I'm going now
and I believe it now
let her go

well I doubt you'd even bleed...
