lyrics

RAT TRAP

She paints her nails, and climbs on her heels
Can't stand still again, she has to leave her quarters
She migrates in pain, Having the blues again
She has the blues again
Tied to vibrations She will never forget

She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a Rat trap
She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a rat trap

To face the world, survive every day
She'd fight tonight to try to make it better
She tries to hide to keep the pain inside
She is left with no one to say
Back spin punch in, She will never know why

She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a Rat trap
She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a rat trap

She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a Rat trap
She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a rat trap

She paints her nails, and climbs on her heels
Freedom is real, there's so much she can show you
She tries to hide to keep the pain inside
No one to blame or nothing to steel
Back spin, punch in, let the magic begin

She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a Rat trap
She's just short-circuiting, for having put her feet
In a rat trap
