Hard lies, romance, you're lost
I crossed you once you crossed
Coming down, big town, your drain
Is that your claim to fame?

Glad that's not me in your black shoes
No that's not me in your black shoes

In the shoes you will always lose, I think i said it before
Comin' round, falling down, 3 a.m. or 4
Want this, want that, never leave, before you knock on my door
Think again you will never win, I like my loser's sore

You want more of the same, Is that the name of the game?

You're through, what you trying to prove? with you black eyes and all
Stab and grab all the goods you can nab, you're a lonely whore

Smiles to realize, once again i'm free
No one will ever care, about you don't you see
I know the long road, a short cut through pain
Black shoes your black shoes, forever drive you insane

You want more of the same, Is that the name of the game?
