Bad Gentleman

Verse 1

I’m tired of fucking around
You better split some lips
I’ve got this feeling inside
You better take a little sip of it

Pre-Chorus 1

They surround you with
All their lies
I’m the one who will
Show you why

Chorus 1

Make me an offer
I might consider
My touch is a coffin
What you can see is that
I’m a bad gentleman

Verse 2

I know you like what I hide
But you’re too proud to admit
I fuck away all the pain
So don’t be shocked if you burn in it

Pre-Chorus 2

They surround you with
All their lies
I’m the one who will
Show you why

Chorus 2

Make me an offer
I might consider
My touch is a coffin
What you can see is that
I’m a bad gentleman

Make me an offer
I might consider
My touch is a coffin
What you can see is that
I’m a bad gentleman

Bridge

I’m a bad gentleman

Make me an offer

My touch is a coffin

I’m a bad gentleman

Lips as black as night, sharp nails, ripped tights
A coat, the perfect coat to hide what’s inside
She straps on high heels with spikes

And never has to apologize
She’s the end to my right my super nasty dirty girl

Verse 2

So get your fling on, do something evil
I don’t care what it this as long as you put me on
So get your fling on, do something evil
I don’t care what it this as long as you put me on
I knew right away that you’re for me
‘Cause you got nothing to hide
I knew right away that you’re for me

Pre-Chorus 2

‘Cause you got nothing to hide

I held onto you when you cried
Feeling so strong but dying inside
You looked at me and didn't know why
I remember you that winter night

I tried my best to pull us out
Shattered and cracked I remember now

It was the last day we kissed
It was the last day we kissed
It was the last day we kissed

There will be better days

Last day we kissed
Last day we kissed
Track Name: Product
PRODUCT

Verse 1

All their lies sleep in my head tonight
Forgetting all of the life, the love
The time I spent with you
Little girl
Nothing seems to make much sense at all

Pre-Chorus 1

You're
Killing me
But don't
Leave me here

Chrous 1

She's a plastic dancer
Dancing for the world that she makes
Every breath that she takes
Leaves a lie, her beauty fades
Her world is totally made up
Like a doll she's just a product
Hiding behind her make up
Like a doll she's just a product

Verse 2

You're body moves
When I pull on the strings
Every kiss is such an empty thing
Your smile's a fuckin' lie
Hollow cold
But I want you keep on pulling you

Pre-Chorus 2

You're
Killing me
But don't
Leave me here

Chrous 2

She's a plastic dancer
Dancing for the world that she makes
Every breath that she takes
Leaves a lie, her beauty fades
Her world is totally made up

Hiding behind her make up
Like a doll she's just a product

HALO

Intro

You go around and sing along
All while your halo melts away

You talk about us
You talk about trust
You never show what's inside of you
I dream of the things
They never could say
And how you always get your way

You always get your way

Chorus 1

You have no halo
Eyes of the jealous angel
I've been touched by the devil
You have no halo

I think of the pain
Can't step away
I bet you like it when I squirm
Now I can tell
You're straight from hell
A danger I can't break away from

You always get your way
You always get your way
You always get your way

You have no halo
Eyes of the jealous angel

All while your halo melts away

Jumping off this cursed ship
Swimming through this

Can anybody...can anybody...can anybody!
