So, let me get this story straight,
this was just a chance you had to take.
Did I even cross your mind?
This'll be the last time you cross mine.
We were slick as thieves.
Just like a thief,you stole the best of me-
white lies and wild lives inbetween.

Whoa,
for Heaven's sake, I see right through you.
Whoa,
I've got secrets, too.
You're the gun and I can be your bullet to go down on.
Take your best shot 'cause you only get one.

Marionette,
(are your strings tied tight for proper movement?)
Take a deep, deep breath.
(I'm dying just to wrap these strings around your neck.)
I'll stitch my eyes wide open
'cause I don't want to miss
the look on your face when I drive away.
You know you're sharp,
but sharp just doesn't cut it anymore.
I'll show you a side of me, you've never seen before.

Whoa...

When it all bottoms out... I love it when you say you don't remember anything.

Whoa...

Whoa...

    General CommentYeah, It hink that she thinks she has got everyone fooled but he sees through her and doesn't trust her. She doesn't realize he has her figured out and when he leaves she will be surprised kinda thing. Such a good song, I loveee this band!!
