every word is a knife in my ear lyrics – the bravery

every word from your mouth is a knife in my ear
every thought in your head is like poison to hear

like a snake in a suit spitting into the air
with a tongue like a needle and we’re shot full of fear
white picket teeth and a big red alert
the life of the party and we pulled up our skirt

it’s like poison
it’s like poison

every word from your mouth is a knife in my ear
every thought in your head is like poison to hear

a fool is a devil and a devil’s a fool
with a fork-tongue needle and you got us all fooled
a monkey doing tricks and we couldn’t resist
if this isn’t evil then i don’t know what is

it’s like poison
it’s like poison

every word from your mouth is a knife in my ear
every thought in your head is like poison to hear

every word from your mouth is a knife in my ear
