lyrics

Everyone was well dressed, in fancy cars
carelessly doing donuts in the gravel valet parking lot.
I was running from a dirty chicken fight.
I had a knife in my left kneecap and a bullet in my right.
I lost my ground in Central Park,
I started gambling after dark.
Now I'm in shambles and my dog has lost her bark.
I'll climb my way out of this ditch,
cover it up with blood and spit,
and I'll be damned if I've not learned my lesson yet.

And everything you wanted me to do was what I did.
It was a challenge just to keep your belly fed.
I'm permanently sentimental, basking in regret,
I'm sad and tired but at least my ends are met.

A sorry sight for my sore eyes.
An honest try at a goodbye.
I'm drawn to you just like a bull to a red flag.
I left my number in your phone,
its listed under "filthy whore".
You can call it if you ever need a friend.
I am not dumb to all your tricks,
I know just how you get your kicks.
And I'm still giving if you want to take some more.
The cemetery closed at six and that gazebo is too well lit.
It'd suit me fine if you just fuck me in your car.

And everything you wanted me to do was what I did.
It was a challenge just to keep your belly fed.
I'm permanently sentimental, basking in regret.
I'm sad and tired but at least my ends are met.

Ain't it funny all this pain we can endure?
Ain't they obvious those signs that we ignore?
Are we still worthy of a little something more?
Why am I still hungry in this Godforsaken form.
I wound up trading my white wings for two black horns.

And everything I wanted you to do was what you did.
Was it a chore to have me messing with your head?
You're falling short of your potential,
losing your own grip.
You're sad and tired and you've been denying it.
I'm sick of trying to live up to second best.
