Perfect beauty from Toronto
New attraction
Poison heart, though

Was it all just a death trap?
Pulled me in and then shut snaps, stupid

Did it make you come to get me?
Or am I just going mental?

I am not a pushover
How did I get won over, stupid?

Played like a ???
??? every toy
Oh, it’s just a matter time
'Til the day I’m gonna get mine

I am not a pushover
How did I get won over, stupid?

Played like a ???
??? every toy
Only just a matter of time
'Til the day I’m gonna get mine

Did it make you
Come to get me?
Or am I just
Going mental? (Going mental)
Or am I just (Or am I just)
Going mental? (Going mental)
Or am I just (Or am I just)
Going mental? (Going mental)
(or am I just)
(going mental)
(or am I just)
(going mental)

I am not a pushover
How did I get won over, stupid?
