I spent the night with lions and they showed me the ropes
I brought them to my ring and I made them jump hoops
I spent the night with lions and they taught me to kill
Showed me how to sink my teeth into a gazelle
I spent the night with lions and they taught me of pride
I spent the night with lions and they taught me to lie
I spent the night with lions and I wish I'd have died

You're a liar, go fuck your empire
Go fuck your fashion, your city's on fire
Know where you are, cut through the back door
Look in my eye, say something now

(Uno, dos, tres!)
I'll take these open arms and break them over mine
I'll take these open arms and break them over mine

Spoke with mother lion and she taught me defeat
I spoke with mother lion and she taught me defeat

Well she teaches defeat

Stealing the foregrounds in photographs
Stealing the foreground
Taking the backyards and playgrounds
Taking the backyards
