lyrics

You struck the chord,
It was music to their ears
You're dressed up to the nines
And playing on their fears
And if your looks could kill
This club would be an abattoir, and
Not even your closest friends
Have a f#%king clue just who you are

You're lying like it's going out of style
Won't you tell me, does this make you feel worthwhile?

What happened to chivalry?
what happened to poise?
You get off on the coup de gras
Of well-intentioned boys
What happened to honesty
And all that you've destroyed?
Lifeless minds and mindless lives
To you it's all just background noise

You only think about the future
In terms of next month's clothes
You point out others' problems
But you'd never admit your own
Who would ever want to wake up
Next to you (next to you)
I bet that, every time it happens
It feels like deja vu

Tell me baby, was it worth the sin?
I don't even know where to begin!!!

What happened to chivalry?
what happened to poise?
You get off on the coup de gras
Of well-intentioned boys
What happened to honesty
And all that you've destroyed?
Lifeless minds and mindless lives
to you it's all just background noise
