     Ab                        Fm
Well she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor

Just for the attention
                     Fm      Eb
'Cause that's just ridiculously odd

The walls line the bullet ho-ooo-oles

Have some composure, where is your posture

You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger

She didn't choose this role

You cry, you cry
Ab
But they believe it from the tears and the teeth

Right down to the blood at her feet
Cm                                  Eb
Boys will be boys, hiding in estrogen

And wearing Aubergine Dreams
             Ab
Give me a break, break, break, break

You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger
Fm
All wrong
Cm                   Gm
Have some composure, where is your posture

Oh, no, no
       Gm                   Eb
You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger
Fm        Gm
All wrong
