(suspense)

everyday was the same routine
slave labor was her expertise
silent, obedient, built to please
never complain, never disagree
just carry the load, take care of the home
the perfect servent, do as you're told
so she made the bed and fed the cat
wrote a not to her son and his two brats
then packed a bag, called the cab
analyzing every part of the master plan
perfumed and pressed in her sunday best
the time had finally come to abandon the nest
so she slipped the key, and turned the lock
with her favorite handbag and a pocket full of buckshot

and she cried, this is "how heroes die, this will be my best goodbye
this is how heroes die, this will be my best goodbye,"
bang bang, bang bang
necessary accessories, 'til we're deemed too ordinary
necessary accessories, sacrificing everything

and the driver asks, as she slides in the back, "where would you like to roll?"
she says, "read my lips, this is my second trip, i went crazy an hour ago."
so they finally arrive and she pays the driver
she walks inside looking for the liar
she sees him there, in his leather chair
a silk-suited parasite with perfect hair
but behind his desk he tries to hide
pretends he's on a call and averts his eyes
but its too late, so he cracks a smile
offers her a seat and says, "don't be shy"
she say, "you knew what i been through, but i'm still not worth it to be approved? you knew what i been through, but i'm still not worth it to be approved? "
he say, "this was not up to me, now please get up and kindly leave. just stay quiet, don't make a scene."
but this was her day and she aims to please

cuz this is how heroes die, and this will be her best goodbye
bang bang
necessary accessories, 'til we're deemed too ordinary
necessary accessories, sacrificing everything

(ride the bullet, finger the trigger
ride the bullet, finger the trigger)

as silence falls, she can hear them call
this is the way that liars pay, this is the way that liars pay
this will be her best day

what's your credit score, how much do you earn?
what's your credit score, how much are you worth?
what's your credit score, how much do you earn?
what's your credit score, how much are you worth?
what's your credit score, how much are you worth?

    General Commentthis is simple enough. It's about a woman who's role is to be a housewife and obey. The woman goes to kill the man who wont accept her to be anything but this housewife.

    My InterpretationDefinitely about how women can only be considered worthy when they are beautiful and/or are obedient housewives. This housewife has had enough of being considered an necessary accessory and takes revenge on the man who won't allow her to be anything else.
