Lyrics

You were a child
Crawling on your knees toward it
Makin' mama so proud
But your voice is too loud

We like to watch you laughing
You pick the insects off of plants
No time to think of consequences

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting
To be haunted

The water is warm
But it's sending me shivers
A baby is born
Crying out for attention

The memories fade
Like looking through a fogged mirror

Decision to decisions
Are made and not, but what I thought
This wouldn't hurt a lot, I guess not

Can't read my, Can't read my
No she can't read my poker face (He's got me like nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face (Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face (Mum mum mum mah)

I won't tell you that I love you
Kiss or hug you
Cause I'm bluffin' with my muffin
I'm not lyin' I'm just stunnin' with my love-glue gunnin'

Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand cause I'm marvelous

Uh!

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting
To be haunted

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees
