Mary the marionette was tangled
From her tango last night with the Russian dolls
She paints her face and paints her nails
Black like the storm cloud she exhales
Her eyes have bled this red since Tuesday

So if this is all then I will slow right down
I will slow right down for you
If this is all then I will slow it down

Don’t waste your lovely life away
Don’t share this weight with me now honestly
Don’t make your pretty promises if they are lies to you
Cause they will lie to you

I’ll marry the marionette oh someday
But when that someday never came I held my strings
Tight tight tight tighter now tighter now
The other dolls share your same fate
But Mary you’ve got the sweetest face
Oh, oh Mary

So if this is all then I will slow right down
I will slow right down for you
If this is all then I will slow it down

Don’t waste your lovely life away
Don’t share this weight with me now honestly
Don’t make your pretty promises if they are lies to you
Cause they will lie to you

Don’t waste your lovely life away
Don’t share this weight with me now honestly
Don’t make your pretty promises if they are lies to you
Cause they will lie to you
And they will lie to you
Like I lied to you
