"Evelyn McHale" as written by and Jherek Bischoff Zac Pennington....
when you got crippled by that car
when we was martyred monthly and scarred by the way that we are
we nearly broke your mothers heart
stay close and pray she never knows
how we both fell apart

sure we were cynics from the start
spellbound still safe as houses
now pending me down for your hearts
and we never meant you any harm
and still though we've thought not to be caught
how the thought made me hard

and sure we look loathesome from afar
hateful and hollow smug and smart
well dont we look the part
sweetheart remembered for your art
train those charms toward the charts and we'll be stars
just the way that we are


and how do we simply carry on?
sweet mess with wrists gone lifeless, save one tacky tryst on that lawn
how long must we be strung along?
and my god i hope that you will be done undone by the sum of ones song

so you got crippled by that car
no longer martyred monthly though scarred by the way that we are
sweetheart those sycophants ain't far
take those drones by the stones and we'll be stars
just the way that we are

    General CommentTo me it sounds like 'sure we were cynics from the start'. Could just be me though...

    *How the thought made me hard
    also "sickest insane thoughts" sounds like "sycophantic..." something. I don't know what.

    I love the "hateful and hollow" line, referencing the Smiths' Hatful of Hollow.
