Mariel, sole survivor of a mass homicide,
She gets up, off of the ground,
She inhales deeply in size.

She gets all up, all up in arms,
She gets all over herself.
She gets all up, tore up at heart,
When she gets back from the fields,

And on her own volition,
She's taking all the blame,
She wants to be the villain,
In her own play.

We got designed as angels,
We got maligned instead,
We got to be the villains,
In our own heads.

Her boyfriend Dan, back in the States,
Well he gets all the bad news.
He's all alone, got no-one to fuck with,
So he pretends he can choose.

And if I'd only been there,
If it'd been me instead,
I wouldn't be the villain,
In my own head.

We got designed as paragons,
We're undermined instead,
And with our virtues real gone,
We can hang our heads.

God said let there be headlights,
Let there be dead life,
All the way I'm fearing.

God don't let me be unkind,
Everyone I meet,
Is fighting an uphill battle, oh.

We got designed as angels,
We got maligned instead,
We got to be the villains,
In our own head.

We got designed as paragons,
We're undermined instead,
And when our virtue's real gone,
We can hang our heads.

Mariel, no survivor of, the last homicide.
She gets up, out of her room.
She exhales deeply in size.
