  • Killing your idols is a chore
    And it's such a fucking bore
    'Cause I don't need them anymore
    So
    Maybe if you just got some guts
    We'd kill 'em with a thousand cuts
    And say we did it out of love

    So save your breath
    Give a little of what you have left
    Do they know something I don't?

    Is it easier when you don't have to count to ten?
    When you don't have to pretend?
    I want to know that feeling
    Is it easier when you don't have to start again?
    When you don't want to make amends?
    I want to know that feeling

    Good girls don't cry
    And good girls don't lie
    And good girls justify but I don't
    Good girls don't die
    And good girls stay alive
    And good girls satisfy but I won't

    They tell me I'm hellbent on revenge
    I cut my teeth on weaker men
    I won't apologize again
    And
    I never had a taste for liars
    Or the uniquely uninspired
    'Cause I don't need to be desired

    Is it easier when you don't have to count to ten?
    When you don't have to pretend?
    I want to know that feeling
    Is it easier when you don't have to start again
    When you don't want to make amends?
    I want to know that feeling

    Good girls don't cry
    And good girls don't lie
    And good girls justify but I don't
    Good girls don't die
    And good girls stay alive
    And good girls satisfy but I won't
    No, I won't
    Ha

    Killing your idols is a chore
    And it's such a fucking bore
    But we don't need them anymore
    We don't need them anymore Writer/s: Iain Cook, Martin Doherty, Lauren Mayberry
