Nothing is certain at this time of day
You could reverberate you could decay
The mouse and the model are laughing at us
We'll risk it we're desperate for someone to trust

Let's start a new heart the new charts are in
We'll take them we'll break them we'll make them give in

By counting your blessings you wind up in debt
It starts with your family and camps in your bed
You Jekyl and hide it when you could have left
Your guard down your dress up you must be upset

Let's start a new heart the new charts are in
We'll take them we'll break them we'll make them give in

It's dark over here on the flip-side of reason
The teaser could be something easy like they did it in a book
You're a crook you're a fake you committed
If you did it say you did it if you didn't suck it up and say you did

Let's start a new heart the new charts are in
We'll tax them relax them and make them forfeit
The vote by a landslide the Jekyl and Hyde
Mackenzie macabre she's bonnie and Clyde

    General CommentTo build on what InkBleedsDeeper said, maybe even about how difficult it is to be someone with two sides to them?
    "The mouse and the model are laughing at us" - maybe they're laughing because they both have set, secure personalities, and "us" doesn't. Like, even the mouse, though it's the opposite of the model, at least has a stable personality.

    "you're a crook you're a fake you're committed /
    if you did it say you did it if you didn't suck it up and say you did"

    if you don't act consistently, you get called a crook, a fake, and possibly get diagnosed with some personality disorder and committed to a mental hospital. So, when someone accuses you of acting a certiain way because "it's characteristic" you have to say you did even if you didn't, to give the impression that you are not of changeable character.
