What ghosts exist behind these attic walls? There's got to be a simpler explanation, Cause I scrimped and I saved Just to find that they've been splicing my inventions. Cold skin and bones and this latitude; We ain't paying until the heat comes through. So you slept in a stocking cap and wool scarf and the Promises of payments were Upon your shoulders constantly, But don't foget to entertain Cause this is your first defense. Four-year offense to the devoted type. I may have got an invitation, but I wasn't invited. But I thought that this meant Something more than broken hearts and new addictions. We'll leave our sins within the carpet twine. Our bodies will dissolve the chemicals in due time. Promises of payments were Upon your shoulders constantly, But don't forget to entertain Cause this is your first defense. This is your first defense. This is a first defense. This was a first defense. This is my last defense.
