The Devil himself, A gentleman, Rolls on up In a Rolls Royce Put your dukes up, Big Bad Wolf Pretty girls Preying boys Even if it hit you, You wouldn’t know the truth Sweetest tongue Sharpest tooth The wolves that prowl the forest Are more decent than you Sweetest tongue Sharpest tooth Fill me up with a Feast of lies What I wanna hear Make me feel pretty But now I got the gun So you better run Watch yourself get 86’d Cos now I’m wise to all your tricks Even if it hit you, You wouldn’t know the truth Sweetest tongue Sharpest tooth The wolves that prowl the forest Are more decent than you Sweetest tongue Sharpest tooth

Rumour 04:20
I heard a rumour Just like a tumour You’d rotted from The inside out, Darling. It’s a shame, true, That I can’t save you And your fake friends Will all let you drown Why do they tell me What I don’t need to know? My not knowing Is part of letting go All it does is renew My need to take care of you A you that no longer exists There’s more to my life than this I hear a rumour That you don’t love her You’re rotten from The inside out, Darling. That’s not fair to her Not to me, either I love a ghost You love a fantasy It was me Every single time For you It was me I was there I heard the rumour And I came running You left me Crying on the hotel shower floor I loved you more Than anyone who’s Ever loved you It was me Every single time I came to save the day It was me I loved you You threw me away There’s a reason all your real friends left And there’s no one to blame but you I’m not your keeper That ship has sailed

The city that never sleeps Well, neither do we It’s time for Heidi’s Pies And for a late night drive Expansive Kingdom of Hillsborough Drive around, look at houses we’ll never own Disco across from Toad Hall It’s 2am, maybe we’re human after all South City, top of the hill Lights mirror the stars Though they’re trying to push us out This is forever ours Despereux’s Kingdom can’t shut us out Drive around, look at houses we’re gonna own Disco across from Toad Hall It’s 2am, maybe we’re human after all Come along for a Late night drive Feel young And alive And in the morning We can go back to real life But for now Let’s just f--kin ride (I feel an ache in my heart I’d never admit I wish you were him) Come along for a Late night drive Feel young And alive And in the morning We can go back to real life But for now Let’s just f--kin ride

Home By Now 03:23
If You were here, you'd home by now If You were here, you'd home by now And my little fantasy where you play house with me in my Grandma's kitchen where I make you tea but why do I break my own heart with what I know can't be now we're on our own to a God unknown and a Briar Patch we can never go back to The horses in the pasture still remain the same by my fog soaked Grandma's house no longer bears my name how many more times must I say good bye? now we're on our own to a God unknown and a Briar Patch we can never go back to If You were here, you'd home by now If You were here, you'd home by now if you were here, you'd be sober party is over If You were here, you'd home by now If You were here, you'd home by now

Rosaleen 03:26
You like the taste of danger Adonis in the form of A dark and handsome stranger Live a life I can only dream of For you are beautiful as you are wise And you can see through bad men’s lies You were meant For greater things Rosaleen Queen of your realm Rosaleen At the helm Of your own destiny And no one can tell you Any different You were meant For greater things I’ve been done terrible wrong now to put wrong to right Gun for the Devil A bloody chamber know better than to trust A dark and handsome stranger For you are as beautiful as you are wise And you can see through bad men’s lies Rosaleen Queen of your realm Rosaleen At the helm Of your own destiny For you are as beautiful as you are wise And you can see through bad men’s lies You were meant For greater things No one can tell you different For you are as beautiful as you are wise And you can see through bad men’s lies You were meant For greater things No one can tell you different and Maybe someday I will be, too

Unlock the deepest darkest Secret in my heart Like the rat infestation you are feeling pure and safe and whole For the first time of my life And now I’m too bruised To be someone else’s wife (to be someone else’s bride) I never thought I was pretty Until you lusted after me Like the rat infestation you are I became Eurydice Because you could not believe Took one for the team Became Eurydice there was no one after you what about me? Under my armor plate Is my beating heart heart hunted by A haunted man Brigadoon birthdays Two feathers A hackneyed carousel And a purple watercolour_stain I crave a spotless mind The land of lethe and bees Where I can erase you Like the rat infestation you are Halcyon phantasm, Don’t lie to me Under my armor plate Is a beating heart I took one for the team Became Eurydice Because you could not Believe in me It’s hard to shallow That the once fertile is now fallow Nostalgia is a liar And so are you The greatest thing you’ll never learn I'm not a possession or an accessory and you don't know how to love unselfishly
