I'm waiting for the train Subway that only goes one way The stupid thing that'll come to pull us apart And make everybody late You spent everything you had Wanted everything to stop that bad Now I'm a crashed credit card registered to Smith - Not the name that you called me with You turned white like a saint I'm tired of dancing on a pot of gold-flaked paint Oh we're so very precious, you and I And everything that you do makes me want to die Oh I just told the biggest lie I just told the biggest lie The biggest lie

Drink up baby, stay up all night With the things you could do You won't but you might The potential you'll be that you'll never see The promises you'll only make Drink up with me now And forget all about the pressure of days Do what I say and I'll make you okay And drive them away The images stuck in your head The people you you've been before That you don't want around around anymore That push and shove and won't bend to your will I'll keep them still Drink up baby, look at the stars I'll kiss you again between the bars Where I'm seeing you there with your hands in the air Waiting to finally be caught Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine Keep you apart, deep in my heart Separate from the rest, where I like you the best And keep the things you forgot The people you've been before That you don't want around anymore That push and shove and won't bend to your will I'll keep them still

Angeles 03:59
Someone's always coming around here, trailing some new kill Says I've seen your picture on a hundred dollar bill And what's a game of chance to you, to him is one of real skill So glad to meet you Angeles Picking up the ticket shows, there's money to be made Go on and lose the gamble, that's the history of the trade And you add up all the cards left to play to zero And sign up with evil Angeles Don't start me trying now 'Cos I'm all over it Angeles I could make you satisfied in everything you do All your secret wishes could right now be coming true And be forever with my poison arms around you No one's gonna fool around with us No one's gonna fool around with us So glad to meet you Angeles
