lyrics

Poison picture painted on the wall of life.
Sugar coated bullets on my mind at midnight.
Remembered I started drinking to forget, but I lost all track of time.

Bitter is forgiveness in my state of mind.
Words are puzzle pieces spoken sharp as I find.
Bold is the brass of my crimes.
Five times a lover, six times I made you cry.

Standing in the middle of a paradise of my own pain.
You gotta give a little up for every pretty piece that you gain.
Stuck inside these mid-town blues but I’ve gotta keep holding on.

Broken ballerina in a jewellery box.
Memory prints forever polaroid at sunrise.
Too much to resist, lose money hand over my fist to the tumbling dice.

Monday morning rush down a dead-end street.
I cut off all my toes to try spite my feet.
Carrying the cross of my crimes.
Tell me how many more times to say goodbye.

Standing in the middle of a paradox of my own pain.
You gotta give a little up for every pretty piece that you gain.
Stuck inside these mid-town blues.

Write your name upon the slate.
But don’t you dare leave lilies on my grave.
