“Midnight Alibis”

What do you want from me, what do you need from me
Have I got anything you want or is it just sympathy

Can you take any more of me without terminating me
Make me carry my cross just so that you can crucify me

You twisted my mind, with your words like steel
You splintered my soul, rolled me round like a wheel
You washed out my brain with your saltwater lies
You cornered the market in midnight alibis

alibis alibis …… your midnight alibis

Waves of cynicism pour through your witticisms
Drown all your troubles in an ocean of criticism

It all seems so pointless the things you do and say
Like calling me back just to chase me away

You’ve twisted my mind, with your words like steel
You’ve splintered my soul, rolled me round like a wheel
You washed out my brain with your saltwater lies
You cornered the market in midnight alibis

alibis alibis ….. your midnight alibis

Now I’m tearing down all the lies and facades
Won’t play no more harlequin, no more charades
Forget all y’r promises, you know they’re all lies
You can bury them all with your midnight alibis

alibis alibis …….. your midnight alibis
your midnight alibis
