the drawers have all been broken into
we've lost our dynamics on how to downplay the situation
we were looking for old love letters written in haste
and maybe bar tabs with bragging rights to prove
to tell us
two drinks were ordered for the blonde
and one for the brunette
only one was led to a dark room
we're the vixen, the manic, and the savior
of a small interaction
that's somehow going to show the world
deceit is global
this is scene infinity of our claim to fame
an affinity of untapped potential
he had an impressive array of disguises
i never lost my desire for appeal
that i didn't have
but she always did
no one knows who the villian is
but we all wanted control
