And to never see your face again
Read the omens or face consequences
That trigger disaster in the blink of an eye
I spy a tidal wave
Head for the hills and pray that we survive

Your hands are red
Your lies are white
My tongue is tied
Another classic case of the American blues
Your fiction spread
Your twisting lines
Now write it down
Another classic crime and are you wrongfully accused

I’m throwing coins
My wishes never came
So many coins darling
But who’s to blame
I’d make them all mine in the blink of an eye
She sighs
"You’ll be sorry running back to me when karma comes your way"

Your hands are red
Your lies are white
My tongue is tied
Another classic case of the American blues
Your fiction spread
Your twisting lines
Now write it down
Another classic crime and are you wrongfully accused

Are we damned or just terrified
To watch this world turn over and die?

Your hands are red
Your lies are white
My tongue is tied
Another classic case of the American blues
Your fiction spread
Your twisting lines
Now write it down
Another classic crime and are you wrongfully accused

I’ve got this
You’ve got this
Classic case of
American blues

    General Commentgreat song, i'd like someone to give the meaning

    and a few corrections:
    1.) "I'd make them all mine" should be "I'd make them all up"
    2.) "I've got this, you've got this" should be "I caught this, you caught this"

    General Comment"Your hands are red
    Your lies are white"
    ^ she is guilty, a liar.

    she sighs
    "You'll be sorry running back to me when karma comes your way"
    ^she thinks he's wrong.

    "I'm throwing coins
    My wishes never came
    So many coins darling
    But who's to blame"
    ^he made alot of wishes so things weren't perfect; they didnt change. they also can't agree on who to blame

    i dont fully understand it but ive only heard it twice. there was a breakup and theyre playing the blame game.
