strippers lyrics – ghost of the robot

strippers

from relationships to friendships you lack
crucial things we need to stay in tact
you stripped for me the best years of my life
and i want them, want them back

did you strip away the essence of your soul
as you spin around the world’s pole
did you strip me down for everyone to see
all your attention was such a tease

things were going fine
until i tried to put your clothes back on
something tells me that was wrong
because you strip me down to this song

strippers take you for a spin
pretending that they’re your best friend
then strip you of your confidence
when you are weak with no defense

did you strip away the essence of your soul
as you spin around the world’s pole
did you strip me down for everyone to see
all your attention was such a tease

things were going fine
until i tried to put your clothes back on
something tells me that was wrong
because you strip me down to this song

strippers take you for a spin
pretending that they’re your best friend
they’ll whisper things into your ears
they’ll whisper things i’ll always fear
