Down By Law – The King & I lyrics

Candy coated promise
And candy coated lies
I don't know what you've been told
But we've heard it a million times
From day to day is how you're livin'
Blowing chances that you've been given
Jaded ears, jaded spoons
Feed us like we're little fools
Now we've got our chance
I know the way it was
And now the way it is
You don't know what the fuck you're saying
And we don't give a shit
Should you stay, or should you go . . .
You ask yourself - who wants to know?
This and that, get off my back
Go ahead and steal the show
Acting stupid, that's all you did
Now we're rolling and moving steps ahead
Jaded ears, jaded spoons
Feed us like we're little fools
Enough fake romance
And now we're gonna draw the line
We're sick of wasting all our time
We won't change who we really are
You've pushed us way too far
