That's how rumours start

righteous girls bend at the knees
delinquent girls bend at the waist
got a weakness for pleasure
a fondness for leather
that's how rumours start, oh...
so you think you can tame her
with your trembling middle finger

sirens scream, you pay no mind
teased by the lies they sing
love's no crime but you don't care
come hither, she says

when in a position to choose
you're always destined to lose
can a twice-jilted lover find solace in murder
that's how rumours start, do tell...
can you ever forgive her
will you reach out for the cleaver

crash and burn, you'll never learn
love is a sham, you know
drawn and quartered, oh never mind
but you can't say no

you're in love
yes, you'll kick and scream down the rabbit hole
everybody knows
yes, she knows
when she waves her hand
when she licks her lips
you'll be down at heel

Life...set to a dance beat. The soundtrack of your trials and tribulations.

A collision of sounds. A thoughtful and whimsical blend of man versus machine.
