Debut studio track by 'Strangling Marilyn'


like me, I mean you
who were you talking to?
When you laughed so loud
Your face became
A pink buffet
Your eyes could only spell disgrace

Falling into lager and old wounds
You turned the room into cartoons
But you were nothing special
Were you?

The days dragged on
Like a drunken song
And even your mother would tell you
You were wrong
You painted your face
And went off to war
And forgot all about what you
Were fighting for

Pretty little liar
Pity that you seem so tired
I won’t mind
You lie down for sleep
And I’ll play house
Till the cat finds the mouse
Oh so bittersweet

And yes
I was the one ignoring your calls
You said you loved me most of all
And when the sun went down
You said you’d rather die
Than fall
So I let you drown

It might have been bad form
But I didn’t mourn
I wore white all day
Heaven knows
You were always prettier
With your eyes closed
