The Shing 01:52
Oh you made my heart sing Just like a bird in the spring But you kept me on your finger Like a yo-yo and string. I put everything into givin’ you wings But you tied my hands with silence And your wall-like mood swings You are The Shing You are The Shing You are The Shing and I don’t ever wanna see you again. Oh was it lies that you told Or just a form of decode To your manipulations my heart was vulnerable It was a passionless waste Of the time of our lives Oh maybe I was too honest You were in disguise. You are The Shing. I’ve been The Shing Cause it’s the truth the truth the truth Or just an alibi. We’re all The Shing That’s why we sing Oh, to hold the devils out of us and hang em to dry. You are The Shing. You are The Shing. You are The Shing and I don’t ever wanna see you again.

Leslie 02:52
Here we are now I've gone on and forced it but I had a couple things I wanted to inform you of: yes, I really tried to get there that day and yes, I really meant everything that I did say. Oh yeah I tried, I tried to make you fine, but I was really lost and I was outta my mind. Oh won't you please ah please forgive me, cause I can't get you outta my dreams Leslie. Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh baby yeah yeah yeah. Kid-i-kid-i-kid-Icarus I don't wanna be your lover I just wanna be your brother. Couldn't you believe I had nothing else to say when I say you there that day with your hips gone all asway? I was distracted by your skirt, like you would never know. And how I tried to make it work, but I was blinded though. Here we are now I've gone on and forced it but I had a couple things I wanted to inform you of: yes, I really tried to get there that day and yes, I really meant everything that I did say. Oh yeah I tried, I tried to make you fine, but I was really lost and I was outta my mind. Oh won't you please ah please forgive me, cause I can't get you outta my dreams Leslie. I was distracted by your skirt, like you would never know. And how I tried to make it work, but I was blinded though. Please don't stop that, hon I need that, find your sun rays and then shine back. Please don't stop your sunspots, sunspots. Oh won't you please ah please forgive me cause I can't get you outta my dreams Leslie.

Well so last night I died of the plague Cause you sent me outside here to beg. Oh though all of my malice has melted to moonlight I'll haunt all your mansions today. And the gardens a field and the glade... What I've been pickin for you Is the time that you always would waste. You been thinkin of you. Ooh, you been thinkin, you. With your guards and your walls You won't keep me out I'll drag you down with me to hell From the pictures that hang by themselves. And it's painful to me to see all of this gone With my old habits I'll haunt you well. Raise the candles and knives to rebel. With my thumb tappin toe finger breath scratchin walls With my old habits I'll haunt you well.
