Lyrics

Justine

Written By: Victor Tomiczek

Fool me once
Fool me once goodbye
I can smell it on you like shit to a fly
You try to start and I don't care
The way you move couldn't light a firecracker
If you held it to a flare
Lie with a lie

Hey Justine make me dirty
Hey Justine make me clean
Hey Justine you end up so confused
There's nothing in this world that you won't lose

Fool me once
Fool me once goodbye
You can keep that fire babe that you tuck up in your thigh
I don't know who first done you wrong
But add me to the list cause like your first 1000 kisses
Babe I'm gone
Lie with a lie

Hey Justine make me dirty
Hey Justine make me clean
Hey Justine you end up so confused
There's nothing in this world that you won't lose

She's dead like Dillinger, dead like Dillinger
She's dead like Dillinger, old John Dillinger

Drink it Off

Written By: Victor Tomiczek

Walk lonely down the street
What is it you want to be
I think your shrugging shoulders know

Handsome smile crooked teeth
Everybody's waiting for you
Just like you hoped they might do

It's a crying shame
How you got let down
How you got stepped on

There's no such thing as broken dreams
Only things you didn't do
And they still follow you around
Inside the open seam
Not doing only practicing
Answers are what the mirror shows

It's a crying shame
How you got let down
How you got stepped on

It's a downright sin
How the world begins to show you love
You will let go

And you're never gonna talk about it
But you're never gonna live without it
And you're never gonna think about it
The forgotten love

When you wake up there's a chance to
Drink it off and laugh about it
Here you are the one
The only fear

There's a mountain of everything and all that
But I cannot be bothered to define it
Everybody walk quietly into limbo

Stomp the Sun

Written By: Victor Tomiczek

The sky is black and the night will wrap its arms around us
Stones are coming down and pressing hard on my chest
Skip them on the water, skip them

The scum on the pond and disease and life grow underneath it
Chains and locks are going up they won't let us in
Window wooden reflection

The sin on her lips and the taste goes well with all her secrets
Open up the drawers and check your pockets again
Stay until the moon is set

The scars inside the tomb that walks with little reason
Machines in the factory are laying silent
Scabs are ripe for harvesting

It's coming around I feel it
If there's a line we'll cross it
Stomping the sun out on the ground
Pass me the deck I'm dealing
Trying the luck I'm feeling
Stomping the sun out on the ground

The clouds in her eyes and a mask her face hides underneath it
Air is drunk on alcohol the floor is stumbling
Blind lamp tub drowning

She said she'd go but we know that we can never leave her
Door is always open you can walk right in
Falling for her violence

It's coming around I feel it
If there's a line we'll cross it
Stomping the sun out on the ground
Pass me the deck I'm dealing
Trying the luck I'm feeling
Stomping the sun out on the ground

Oh, tonight there's something
Oh, tonight there's something wrong

The air in here is blue and grey and and sweet with poison
Shades are coming down and we'll do it again
