lyrics

Did someone say my name
Bee keeper, top fencer
Probation, left behind
Sharp kid there, shit student
Drunk diving in the deep
Vet smoker, sad partner
Two faces, both a friend
New rival, don't cross him

I wrote a master play
I know more than you know
I'll take the world one day
The high road's the low road

Just dial my private line
One question, one hand-job
One uninvited guest
They're work scrubs, O. R. they
What was her name again
Don't like her, she's boring
Hey Blume, we're meant to be
Sad partners, small children

I wrote a master play
I know more than you know
I'll take the world one day
The high road's the low road
I'm just a barber's son
And I can't ignore ya
I fought the board and won
Sic Transit Gloria

And what would Eloise think
To see her boy so sad
Sharing helpless heartache
With a frank blue collar dad
Edward Appleby's long gone
He left us to our lies
Saving your last dance for me
Is all that I could hope for
When you're looking in my eyes

I'm just a barber's son
But I can't ignore ya
I fought the board and won
Sic Transit Gloria
Sic Transit Gloria
Sic Transit Gloria

Stripped down, too loud, and not without whining, Rat Queen can’t help but make you ask yourself, “Did I ever really grow out of my awkward phase?—Or did I just get used to it?”
