about

Catchy rocking acoustic gotcha song coaxing that which lies beneath a lavishly-decorated mask to reveal itself.

lyrics

Only use words like ephemeral
While you’re wearing your emeralds
You stopped caring about the world
Soon as you bought your first East Coast pearl

Now you’re influencing the innocent
And the media says you’re heaven-sent
Bet you only smile when you see your bank statement
Honey, money can’t save the plebeian

Behind closed doors you style your whole story
Come out like a masterpiece
Come on and crowd please
It's your last warning
The end of the warring
Too late for a treaty

Ooh I’d call you Machiavellian
If you weren’t so damn transparent

Honey
Get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
Only time for one more story
Before I bury you in the ground

Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
I’m through with your hypocrisy
The bad bitch is back in town

You think you’re formidable
But the truth is you're imitable
Saint parading in stilettos
Red-lip language universal

And you rule high from your castle
Reel them boys in with your lasso
Curse them fast as poison arrow
Cause none satisfy the devil

Behind closed doors you style your whole story
Come out like a masterpiece
Come on and crowd please
Past your last warning
The end of the warring
Too late for a treaty

Ooh I’d call you Machiavellian
If you weren’t so damn transparent

Honey
Get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
Only time for one more story
Before I bury you in the ground

Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
I’m through with your hypocrisy
The bad bitch is back in town

Ooh
And it seems all sparkles and starlight
Like fireworks at midnight
But behind closed doors lies Princess Hyde
Under cover of dark intentions magnify
Clandestine
Come Alive
Come Alive
Come Alive


Honey
Get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
Only time for one more story
Before I bury you in the ground
Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
I’m through with your hypocrisy
The Bad bitch is back in town

Ooh

Thank you baby for my machete
Please hold while I sharpen the blade
Sorry darling for my machete
Never wanted to watch you bleed

Say

Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
Only time for one more story
Before I bury you in the ground

Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
Only time for one more story
Before I bury you in the ground

Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
I’m through with your hypocrisy
The bad bitch is back in town

Honey get me my Machete
Come on help me cut you down
Only time for one more story
Before I bury you in the ground

The bad bitch is back in town
