about

not to be confused with the chick-flick

lyrics

the anti-ice queen, a shallow brigade
think that you can turn me into lemonade
or fuck me 'til I'm straight and seeing stars

your ingenue, it's a sordid tale
please give me the old hammer and nail
'cause I'm the girl in those smokey, dingy bars

I don't ever wanna be the sweetest thing you've ever seen
a pin up girl, poster child for your violence
or stuck up in your trophy case, the cream pie ends up in my face
with marriage, baby, take the vow of silence

so, let's get busy, but not too busy
to lead you to believe that I'm feeling dizzy
'cause I don't buy your act even for a minute

if your endorphins are misbehaving
that doesn't mean that I need saving
an Oscar Wilde style trial for me to finish

I don't ever wanna be the sweetest thing you've ever seen
a pin up girl, poster child for your violence
or stuck up in your trophy case, the cream pie ends up in my face
with marriage, baby, take the vow of silence
