you play the perfect victim // fought a trillion girls for that role // your monologue calls attention // a trade made when you pawned your soul // and now, the lone end goal // the objective in the game of life's to win // to gain control // say hello, and I know, "here we go again"

not even a hint of remorse for your crimes // is found in your two icy blue, hollow eyes // did you really think that I'd buy your disguise? // baby, I've met you over a hundred times!

you're a saint with a pure heart // you're a regular philanthropist // a brave soldier in wars fought // on distant third-world continents // while your neighbor's distressed by // some comically delusional rule // well, it comes as no surprise // that her source of frustration is you

whenever you speak, you study, analyze // give them what they want, gain their trust, play it sly // if you only knew how well I know the style // honey, I've met you over, over a hundred times!!

on grocery lines / in dirty soup kitchens / on every website / decorated your soapbox / with these bright flashing lights / now your fame-claim to sainthood / can be read from the sky

play your every move with agendas in mind // your pseudo-blue eyes will pseudo-sympathize // did you really think you could hide in plain sight? // baby, I've met you over, over a hundred times!!!!!!!
