Chvrches – By The Throat lyrics

Bad blood and no holds barred
A warning shot, a sacrifice that we made

You know, you know, you know, you know that you go to far (x2)

Waste of time or waste of fear?
Do it again, again until you unfocus them away


All that's golden is never real
And I won't play fair with you this time

All that's golden is never sold
And I'll be thankful when you let go


[Verse 2:]
With teeth we've come this far
I'll take this thing by the throat and walk away


Remember me as I will you
Honesty will wreck this point that we made




[Verse 3:]
Taking over parts of mine
That I will pay for every time


If I could catch you and cut your ties
I would leave you, every time


[Refrain] x4
