  • We're smashing mics in karaoke bars
    You're running late with half your make-up on
    This method acting might pay our bills
    But soon enough there'll be a different role to fill

    I love this feeling
    But I hate this part
    I wanted this to work so much
    I drew up our plans on a chart
    Cars are flipping, I'm in hot pursuit
    My character's strong but my head is loose

    She hits like ecstasy
    Comes up and bangs the sense out of me

    The tarot cards say it's not so bad
    And the blades rotate, there's just no landing pad
    And better have said it, but darling, you're the best
    I'm just tired of falling up the Penrose steps

    I hate this feeling
    But I love this part
    She really wants to make it work
    And I clearly want to let it start
    We'll build a water slide
    As soon as I get home

    Oh, and she hits like ecstasy
    Comes up and bangs the sense out of me
    It's wrong but surely worse to leave
    She hits like ecstasy
    So free up the cheaper seats
    Here comes a Greek tragedy Writer/s: Daniel Haggis, Matthew Murphy, Tord Knudsen
