lyrics

[ LYRICS ]

I've walked all around The City
To the places you and I went.
This is not bittersweet:
It is thoroughly tainted.

I could try to reclaim it
for me and future love,
But my mechanism's broken,
I'll never be clean enough.

I am a fire-cracker disguised as a girl.
I am a self-hating predator,
But for every song of trouble that I sing
There are more prey waiting in the wings.

You know I'd choose death if I weren't permanent.
I've never been good at commitment.
I could run away, but I'd never escape
My ID, my needs, this place.

I walked all around The City
to survey the damage I have done.
Broken hearts on every single corner,
but yours is the loudest one.

Still, I'll stay here in the city
If just to assert my right.
I wont give up these willing victims...
Not without a fight.

I am a fire-cracker disguised as a girl.
I am a self-hating predator,
But for every song of trouble that I sing
There are more prey waiting in the wings.

You know I'd choose death if I weren't permanent.
I've never been good at commitment.
I could run away, but I'd never escape
My ID, my needs, this place.
