  • Just a dime store poet
    Keeping pace, talking his face blue
    Two dollar store tramps
    To get a glance, a new chance at you

    Walk past the dance floor
    That's always been a dear friend of mine
    Cuckolds and concubines
    Dancing in four, four time

    'Hey mister' the bellman says 'I can only recall and spend some time I said'
    So he replies 'Then how do you manage'?
    I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage

    In love, I've always been a mercenary, but I never leave my post when the cash runs out
    I want to make you quiver
    Make your backbone shiver
    Hey kid, take the stage and deliver
    'Hey mister' the bellman says 'I can only recall and spend some time I said.'
    So he replies 'Then how do you manage'?
    I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage

    'How does it feel to stand on the very stones that ran with your parent's blood?
    Do you feel sad? Full of rage? Or does that outfit help you bury your feelings?
    Hiding your true self
    You're truly an extraordinary specimen; I look forward to breaking you'

    I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage

    'Hey mister' the bellman says 'I can only recall and spend some time I said.'
    So he replies 'Then how do you manage'
    I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage

    'Hey mister' the bellman says 'I can only recall and spend some time I said.'
    So he replies 'Then how do you manage'
    I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage Writer/s: ALICE GLASS, ETHAN KATH
