about

lyrics

She's dolling up while she's dumbing down
She'll miss her dress when it hits the ground
She's got a friendly market
She's got a boyfriend all night long

She fools herself into hating me
As if her nightmares were my decree
It's true, I saw it coming
I paid her nothing for my fill

Former noble
My Chernobyl
Do they watch you sleep?
Like I used to
On our honor
Back when you were free

Her kind of wake-up was vodka brunch
When I went dry, she went back to drunk
A sacrificial offer
Of herself to all mankind

I wonder how she imagines me
Am I a filled possibility?
I've nothing left to offer
I'll get in line like all the rest

Former noble
My Chernobyl
Do they watch you sleep?
Like I used to
On our honor
Back when you were free

Now you're filthy

Seen my angel
On the sidewalk?
Call her Angelique.
