about

K: in the hopes that you've learned, and that society learns (one day).

lyrics

Place your arm discreetly ‘round my waist
Hold me close, but never out of place
Whisper soft in words of spinning gold
Things I’ve heard that never do get old

I should have thought this through, but I thought I was safe
If I’d have known the truth, I’d turn and run away

So I stand here, and I’m thinking, how did we get this far?
From talking and listening to Radiohead sitting in the dark?

But it shouldn’t have to be this way
Your words mean nothing anyways
But you were such an honest man
I thought that you were good, I can’t pretend
This should be going differently
I shouldn't feel your hands on me
But I can taste you on my teeth
I’d rather that than watch you bleed
But it shouldn’t have to be this way
It shouldn’t have to be this way

Kick your feet up on my easy chair
Run your fingers gently through my hair

I should have thought this through, but I thought I was safe
If I’d have known the truth, I’d turn and run away

So I stand here, and I’m thinking, how did we get this far?
From talking and listening to Radiohead sitting in the dark?

But it shouldn’t have to be this way
Your words mean nothing anyways
But you were such an honest man
I thought that you were good, I can’t pretend
This should be going differently
I shouldn't feel your hands on me
But I can taste you on my teeth
I’d rather that than watch you bleed
But it shouldn’t have to be this way
It shouldn’t have to be this way

You’ve got a serpentine tongue and it’s full of lies
And you were just trying this on for size
You should know better, you should know better
You’ve got a serpentine tongue and it’s full of lies
And you were just trying this on for size
You should know better, you should know better
You’ve got a serpentine tongue and it’s full of lies
And you were just trying this on for size
You should know better, you should know better
So take your serpentine tongue and your mouth of lies
And burn it all away, set the sky alight
You should know better, you don’t know better

But it shouldn’t have to be this way
Your words mean nothing anyways
But you were such an honest man
I thought that you were good, I can’t pretend
This should be going differently
I shouldn't feel your hands on me
But I can taste you on my teeth
I’d rather that than watch you bleed
But it shouldn’t have to be this way
It shouldn’t have to be this way
It shouldn’t have to be this way
It shouldn’t have to be this way
