Recorded spring/summer of 2019.

lyrics

You're too well dressed for this parking lot
You lose your cool
That old embarrassing thing you do

Another smoke in the car she bought
Deep in debt
You fall apart at the seams for a cigarette

Dress to kill
Dress to kill
When you hit the town
No one else can tell you're breaking down

Dress to kill
Dress to kill
When you hit the town
No one else can tell you're breaking down
But you can't stay

You throw your fists at the flowerpots
You lose your cool
Spilling blood on your Jimmy Choos

Dress to kill
Dress to kill
When you hit the town
No one else can tell you're breaking down
But you can't stay
There in your long-term and committed girlfriend's driveway

***

You do it out of love
You do it for your guests
When your dirty fingers rub the garden into your chest

Tearing out the bulbs
Making a mess
Azalea honey smeared all over your Burberry vest

What a mess
Your burberry vest
Every time's a tiny death

(what a mess
Honey on your vest
What a mess
Honey smeared across your vest)

What a mess
Honey on your vest
What a mess
You look like you need a ride back home
Where you'll sit in the cold, all alone
