Humiliation Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

[Verse 1]
I survived the dinner
And the air went thinner
I retired to the briars
By the pool it gets so loud

If I die this instant
Taken from the distance
They will probably list it down
Among other things round town

Got my rings around me
I got baby to pound me
I see stars and go weak
My baby cries and lays me down

In the skies over black Venice
I see eyes of a white menace
The surprise of the week
Is that I never heard the sound

[Verse 2]
All the L.A. women
Fall asleep while swimming
I got paid to fish them out
And then one day I lost the job

And I cried a little
I got fried a little
Then she laid her eyes on mine
And she said, "Babe, you're better off"

I got my rings around me
I got baby to pound me
I see stars and go weak
My baby cries and lays me down

In the skies over black Venice
I see eyes of a white menace
The surprise of the week
Is that I never heard the sound

[Chorus]
Tunnel vision lights my way
Leave a little life today

[Bridge]
As a free fall advances
I'm the moron who dances
I was teething on roses
I was in guns and noses

Under the withering white skies of
Humiliation
Under the withering white skies of
Humiliation

[Chorus]
Tunnel vision lights my way
Leave a little life today
Tunnel vision lights my way
Leave a little life today

[Outro]
She wore blue velvet
Said she can't help it
She wore blue velvet
Said she can't help it
She wore blue velvet
Said she can't help it
