Sergeant Smythe – Where Have You Been? lyrics

Taken by surprise
Those deceitful eyes
It’s no wonder why
You promise everything.
What’s behind the lies
Are the severed ties
With no compromise
You promise everything.
Read between the lines
These are desperate times
Don’t pretend it’s fine
You promise everything.
Open up your mind
To a different kind
Think I’ll fall in line
Won’t promise anything.

Wait, don’t look the other way
You’ll be looking for another place to stay.

I wanna know, where have you been?
Coz from here looks like you’re swimming in sin.

From my point of view
It’s a shame.
All you got is money and fame.
What you gonna do?
You’re to blame for this.
From my point of view
You’re a fake.
Coz you weren’t invited give back your cake.
This party’s over for you
What a mistake.

I wanna know, where have you been?
Hey check look what the cat dragged in.
Coz from here looks like you’re swimming in sin.
