  • Bite my tongue, bide my time
    Wearing a warning sign
    Wait 'til the world is mine
    Visions I vandalize
    Cold in my kingdom size
    Fell for these ocean eyes

    You should see me in a crown
    I'm gonna run this nothing town
    Watch me make 'em bow
    One by one by one
    One by one by
    You should see me in a crown
    Your silence is my favorite sound
    Watch me make 'em bow
    One by one by one
    One by one by one

    Count my cards, watch them fall
    Blood on a marble wall
    I like the way they all
    Scream
    Tell me which one is worse
    Living or dying first
    Sleeping inside a hearse
    I don't dream

    You say
    Come over baby
    I think you're pretty
    I'm okay
    I'm not your baby
    If you think I'm pretty

    You should see me in a crown
    I'm gonna run this nothing town
    Watch me make 'em bow
    One by one by one
    One by one by
    You should see me in a crown
    Your silence is my favorite sound
    Watch me make 'em bow
    One by one by one
    One by one by one

    Crown
    I'm gonna run this nothing town
    Watch me make 'em bow
    One by one by one
    One by one by
    You should see me in a crown (you should see me, see me)
    Your silence is my favorite sound (you should see me, see me)
    Watch me make 'em bow
    One by one by one
    One by one by one Writer/s: Benoit Jouis Andre Roger Bardou, Billie Eilish O'Connell, Finneas Baird O'Connell

  • Genna from HereI wonder if this subliminally was a warning About the Corona virus, for real. The stars often tell us warnings about stuff that we as the viewers don't really see in this big world picture. Perhaps this virus was a planned attack from Korea or someone wanting to destroy the old and the weak
  • Whatever from Earthfreaky when you think about this song and corona virus
