lyrics

followed by black skies
but cursed by green eyes
nobody gets a repeal
cause down in the city
things were getting so gritty
baby, we need time to heal
and i am such
an unbearable bore
so i will spare you all the guts and the gore

cause you're my flame
you keep me lit
i guess it's kinda sad
that candles have to eat their own wicks
it's just like when rodents
devour their young
you tied your noose
but you were pushed rather than hung
i
can
not
stop
this
so everybody get on the ground
this is not
a momentary lap in empathy
no
this is a robbery

the love lives of fruit flies
the way heart tissue dies
this isn't math
but oh, i wish that it were
cause i've been polluted
dredged up and diluted
like the hudson
from glens falls to new york
and i am such
and immaculate whore
for five more dollars i will show you the door

cause you're my flame
you keep me lit
i guess it's kinda sad
that candles have to eat their own wicks
it's just like when rodents
devour their young
you tied your noose
but you were pushed rather than hung
i
can
not
stop
this
so everybody get on the ground
this is not
a momentary lap in empathy
no
this is a robbery

how the hell do you expect me to play that game
when i don't know the rules, i am so fucking lame
i don't wanna die alone on a twin sized mattress
but that's where i'm gonna end up
if i don't accept fate
or learn to live without hate
just give me a second chance
i'm not too cool to dance

cause you're my flame
you keep me lit
i guess it's kinda sad
that candles have to eat their own wicks
it's just like when rodents
devour their young
you tied your noose
but you were pushed rather than hung
i
can
not
stop
this
so everybody get on the ground
this is not
a momentary lap in empathy
no
this is a robbery
