Lyrics

II cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

You won me over
My orange cola got black flamingoes crying for ya
Well I'll see you later
I could be your faker
My hands shake like jellyfish when you're near

I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

You're a hammer, sweet firecracker
Stumbling through Chinatown
Liar, liar, my house is on fire
Somewhere between Chinatown and here

I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

Come a little closer, it's alright
I'll be your character with flaws tonight
Come a little closer, my firefly
You're not the only one who doesn't want to be alone tonight

I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
