Debut single for new band Venus Invictus

lyrics

I walked a trail of eggshells to stay in your line
Now I know that tightrope was such a waste of time
I’d stand around for hours on end waiting for your call
Turns out I was lucky when you even showed at all

Trapped on this joyride, I think we’re gonna crash
You’re shifting the blame? Well, you can kiss my ass
When it comes to genius you say you’re the king
So take over the world, since you know everything

Let’s not lose our heads...

You come out lobbing orders like mortars with your ego affront
You think you're a goddess, but you're not -- you're just a cunt
Don't tell me to bow, don't tell me to bend,
don't tell me I've got to comply
Don't try to patrol me or control me
or I'll tell you to die

Let’s not lose our heads... Move on instead...

So far from where we’ve been through kicking and screaming
(You dragged me through it all, kicking & screaming)
So close to everything
(Controlling everything)
But you threw it all away
(You do it all your way)
How could you throw it all away
(And you always get your way)
Just to be mundane, just to be a slave
(Don’t wanna be your slave)

I know you still feel something / You don't know me
I see you're in denial / You see what you want to see
I'm just trying to save us / Not a saviour, but a fraud
So don't parade your sorrow
Like you're some kind of demagogue

So full of hatred
YOU MAKE ME WANNA SCREAM
You bring it on yourself / You're going to extremes
Just give up and acquiesce / You must be dreaming
I'll drag you through it all (TO THE BLOCK)
KICKING AND SCREAMING

Let’s not lose our heads... Move on instead...

So far from where we’ve been through kicking and screaming
(You dragged me through it all, kicking & screaming)
And so close to everything
(Controlling everything)
But you threw it all away
(You do it all your way)
How could you throw it all away
(And you always get your way)
Just to be mundane, just to be a slave
(Don’t wanna be your slave)

(Off with her head, off with her head,)
Insisting...
(Off with her head, off with her fucking head)
Resisting...
(Off with her head, off with her head, off with her head, off with her head)
You dragged my head right to the block

(Off with her head, off with her head,)
Insisting...
(Off with her head, off with her head)
Resisting...
So far from where we’ve been through kicking and screaming
(You dragged me through it all, kicking & screaming)
And so close to everything
(Controlling everything)
But you threw it all away
(You do it all your way)
How could you throw it all away
(And you always get your way)
Just to be mundane, just to be a slave
(Don’t wanna be your slave)

(Off with her head, off with her head,)
Insisting...
(Off with her head, off with her fucking head)
Resisting...
(Off with her head, off with her head, off with her head, off with her head) You dragged my head right to the--
