lyrics

The poisonous words from her venomous lips,
surge through your mind, numbing the process
You don’t know any different than to think what she thinks
You’re a puppet on her string

So click click your fingers, wake up, see the picture
You can escape from her perilous clutches
We’ve all been there and we know what it’s like
to open your eyes and suddenly realise

She can’t see she’s turned everyone against her
Playing us like chess
We’ve seen through that smile and that sickly sweet blur
Now it’s ten against one
and she will fall down

Her eyes burn a hole in the back of your head
she can’t handle not being centre of attention
Jealousy fueled, it all builds up inside
just wait for her to explode

I’ll buy her a one way ticket out of this town
and I will stamp stamp my feet
you will see I won’t back down

She can’t see she’s turned everyone against her
Playing us like chess
We’ve seen through that smile and that sickly sweet blur
Now it’s ten against one
and she will fall down

Now she’s hiding away
‘cause she don’t want to hear
You pass your judgement upon
the truth hurts you see
she doesn’t want to listen to anyone
who’ll disagree

She can’t see she’s turned everyone against her
Playing us like chess
We’ve seen through that smile and that sickly sweet blur
Now it’s ten against one
and she will, she will
She can’t see she’s turned everyone against her
Playing us like chess
We’ve seen through that smile and that sickly sweet blur
Now it’s ten against one
and she will fall down
