Bad Cat
 

You're going a little too fast for a girl from the right side of the tracks

Wasn't it only yesterday you asked what a Pontiac was?

And now you've got a crew of your own and a 53,000  loan

 

This bad cat's got in over her head

And what a shame it is

Think what she could do with a one-time interaction

To learn that it takes more than blood and sexual attraction 

 

Told off by your nanny, your cousin, and Francis too

Decided you were too far gone, that you've got a demon in you

So armed with a butter knife you fought your way out of your cage

Gilded though it was you said your poor young soul was dead

 

This bad cat's got in over her head

And what a shame it is

Think what she could do with a one-time interaction

To learn that it takes more than blood and sexual attraction 

 

Gonna take a long time

To realize the bite cannot be taught 

There's a steel that's in the bones and hearts of

Those who breathe the stench, the spirit of this city far from home

 

Come up with foolproof plan, get a blueprint or two

Pick the locks and you'll see you're a green-thumbed little thief

But wear your gloves cause you can't stain your porcelain hands

Pretty little hands

 

Running down the alley, it's not a one-way street

Someone's waiting at the end, and they're dying to meet

The lovely girl who went insane trapped in her head

So she decided she'd go for adrenaline instead

 

This bad cat's got in over her head

And what a shame it is

Think what she could do with a one-time interaction

To learn that it takes more than blood and sexual attraction 

This bad cat is gonna lose her head

But this is nothing new

It won't be the last time the urchins shoot her dead

And leave her in a pool of blood in her own sweet bed

A Dark Red Sky
 
Small Talk

The camera's closing in they can't see me now

There's nothing more they can do

Cause this time I've got a complicated plot

And it's hard to determine what's true

Stone cold revenge won't work

Some like it hot

This dark red sky's got me burning

A fever climbing up

Can't calm the coming storm

Can't see it coming from the trodden down, no

Girls that you push aside, oh

Well we push back

No more time, I'm done with charts

I'm gonna eat your heart

Scales tipped against me for the moment, but you'll see

I'm too good, I've got to play the odds

Tight, black boots with heels

I'm kicking down your door

Cause I'm gonna stain the earth

To match a dark red sky

Can't calm the coming storm

Can't see it coming from the trodden down, no

Women you push aside, oh

We don't just push back

Big, bad wolves forgot about the bitch

Who's sleeping with the sheep

Tiny though I be, there's something more that you can't see

They've struck a nerve, but we've got double

We're scratching and clawing and biting to even the score

And baby I'm bleeding out

With an arm wrapped around her you convince yourself

You've taken her under your wing

But that's not quite true, so what can I do

To show you that she just can't breathe

Stone cold revenge won't work

Some like it hot

This dark red sky's got me burning

A fever climbing up

This dark red sky's got me burning

A fever climbing up

Can't calm the coming storm

Can't see it coming from the trodden down, no

Women you push aside

We do more than push back

 

It's not my fault I think you're stupid

Look at all the things you did

You were wild and relentless

Such reckless little kid

It's not my fault I think you're stupid

Listen at all the things you said

You were lacking a filter

You were rude and now you're dead

 

Cause I am the sun

And I am the moon 

I am all the things that you should respect 

I am the stars

And I am the skylight

And I'm not ready to leave just yet

 

You made me feel inadequate and dumb

You made me feel that I had to run to keep up with you

When it was you holding me back

Cause I am the sun

And I am the moon

I am all the things that you should respect

I am the sky

And I am the starlight

And I'm not ready to leave just yet

 

I was never good at small talk anyway

So don't imagine I care 

About the thoughts running through your head

Running through your head (x3)

 

It's not my fault I think you're stupid

Look at all the things you did

You were wild and relentless

Such a feckless little kid

Cause I am the sun

I don't give a damn what you say

And I am the moon

I'll push you out of my way

I was never good at small talk anyway

And I’m not ready to leave just yet

No I'm not ready to leave just yet

I need to come up with new words 

Unknowable
 

I don't see a future for you

I don't think it's in the cards

I don't see anything for you

Give up your hands, give up your eyes, and your heart

 

It's not the first time this has been required of you

But up till now you've been unknowable  

Didn't think it would be so soon, but we figured you out

 

And as the stars fold into darkness

Your eyes lose their spark and start caving in

I'm your king and I'm your sorcerer 

But my gaze is fatal and I can't give just anyone my soul

 

It's not the first time this has been required of you

But up till now you've been unknowable  

Didn't think it would be so soon, we'd figure you out

 

Down on your knees you'll be

Make way for me, I'm coming unseen

The line's been crossed

I'm drowning

I don't see a future for you

I don't think it's in the cards

I don't see anything for you

Give up your hands, give up your heart
