Velvet 4 Sale

Album: A Poem Unlimited (2017)
  • You've been sleeping with one eye open
    'Cause he always could come back, ya know?
    And you've been walking these streets unguarded
    Waiting for any man to explode
    You spend hours in the mirror hating
    But you can get that power, too
    It's not you, it's them
    You should get it too, you should get it too
    'Cause they always could come back, ya know?

    It's all just friction
    But don't forget the revenge
    Act like you got some velvet for sale
    Then you destroy their hope for deliverance
    Don't offer no reason
    Instill in them the fear that comes with being prey

    Now watch me holding it one-handed
    Sideways trusting in that clip
    The cock and pull will get the ol' boys dancing
    Then she said, "the recoil is the celebration
    The blood like oil spilling on the floor
    This'll surely feel against your nature
    But girl, you gotta move on
    Guarantee at least one bullet goes behind the eyes
    'Cause they always could come back for more"

    It's all just friction
    But don't forget the revenge
    Act like you got some velvet for sale
    Then, you destroy their hope for deliverance
    Don't offer no reason
    Instill in them the fear that comes with being prey Writer/s: John Cameron, Maximilian Ross Turnbull, Meghan Ann Uremovich
