lyrics

"i walk up in the party like, congrats on your divorce /
you've lost a ton of weight, i could eat you with a fork /
you look so good, i'd even share my blanket fort /
mouth still writing checks my ass cannot afford /
half adored, half detested + denounced /
but somehow i always end up in your house /
with your hands all in my blouse, + my hairs all in your grout /
i'm under your skin, you cannot scrub me out, you love me now /
what a silly thing for you to do /
i'm a pretty thing, unusual /
fun, beautiful - your compliments are so common /
i'm not confused, i'm in a mood /
i am tattooed like a convict /
you wanted a bad girl? you've got it /
i can stop your heart, i can make it beat quicker /
i am the poison + the elixir, go figure /
no bitterness here, baby, face the bitch in the mirror, baby /
i am not two-faced behind your back, i will switch while you're here, baby /
fix up your sneer, baby, who told you to trust me? /
i am your favorite childhood toy - broken but lovely /
losing my stuffing, spilling your guts over the kitchen sink /
i mean more to you than you to me, gone in an instant, dare you to blink /
dare you to think i am not, everything you think i'm not /
i probably am, i'm possibly damned /
groggy + slamming this cabernet /
best sex i have had in a day, bad habits - can't put 'em away /
my love is a kick in the teeth, a beautifully booted foot in your face /
i told you not to like me, though i was sure you would /
like, c'mon, baby, make it, make it hurt so good /
sometimes love doesn't feel like a punishment /
embrace every feeling (you're) confronted with /
play with fire + you run the risk /
of living a cliché /
don't just lie in it, die in the bed that we've made /
save your candy-coated kiss of death /
you begged me to be this direct /
these tears are queer, they misdirect /
i promise i'm worse than i seem /
you vomited, purged all your dreams /
worship the queen, worship the queen, worship the queen /
worship the queen, grovel in my presence /
your object of affection, my novel little peasant /
i treated you like a servant /
defeated, you thought you deserved it /
retreated, + hauled off your purpose /
all of this for a pithy wordsmith? /
yeah, i sure paint a picture vividly /
still making masterpieces of your misery /
but things change /
now my skin is draped in violet /
i've no skill for taking all this violence /
world's tiniest violin plays for you /
my pain is new in our game for two /
a last Tango in Paris /
a mass grave gifted from Eros /
they say we only hurt the ones we love /
i was a lonely bucket of blood /
stuck in the flood of all these tears /
busted ribs + borrowed years /
far be it from me to not take your lashes /
ripped my flesh + licked the gashes /
a woman scorned, i burnt to ashes /
words were weapons, turned you batshit /
i stole your heart, you took my breath away /
for good, nothing left to say /
you felt for a pulse, + were right to check /
then went + turned the gun on yourself /
'cause life without me isn't life, it's death /
life without me isn't life, it's death"
