lyrics

Fairy tales are fairy tales for a reason
Jail have bars so we don't die
Heaven has a place for those who breathe in
And those who breathe out are sayin' bonsai

Truth hurts but we can't all be very square
Life is a game of truth or dare
Now I'm sitting in Paris with ma bon frere
It's a good thing the city has a little light to share


Tell me what to do
Tell me what to say
And I'll say it
Tell me you lose
I'll put plug in the jug
and I'll pray it


There's nothin left to lose
Except a days hard earned pay
But as long as you tell me what to do
I'll do it today


I put my cape on in front of the mirror
I leave out the mask and whip
I take my sword into a slumber
And then I crack it wide with my shit


Tell me!
Tell me!


Tell me what to do
Tell me what to say
And I'll say it
Tell me you lose
I'll put plug in the jug
andI'll pray it
There's nothin left to lose
Except a days hard earned pay
as long as you tell me what to do
I'll do it today


Tell me what to do
Tell me what to say
And I'll say it
Tell me you lose
I'll put plug in the jug
and I'll pray it
There's nothin left to lose
Except a days hard earned pay
as long as you tell me what to do
I'll do it today
