Shittalkers - Live

from Paradiso in the Moonlight by Ken Stringfellow

lyrics

A bad sign, it was an overnight wait
Kids in the clubs won't even touch this stuff it's a hard sell
Act not, Heaven act not stay your hand cuz
I can recall telling you how I feel the hurt it was so real

A Batsuit won't protect me from you bores
You shoulda come to me first
Who's gonna help you now, shittalkers?
Who's gonna help paint your sky--all the unpaid beauty thieves?

Back when you started there was envy all around
You and your sedative sighs became so acquainted
Paranoias antiquated
I was into you cuz you were so under-studied
Well, take it all back cuz I don't want your blood money
You were into me for the last time

I got news for this town:
All you shittalkers & unlicensed dog walkers
Rib-eyed taxidermy hog stalkers
You can take it all up the Wabash
And put it where the Pope don't even smile anymore
You only do it cuz you're bored--Shittalkers!
I'll be somewhere else doing what I always did
Keeping the streets safe from American kids

Back when you started there was envy all around
You and your sedative sighs became so acquainted
Paranoias antiquated
I was into you cuz you were so under-studied
Well, take it all back cuz I don't want your blood money
You were into me for the last time

Oh, but innocence it never was a good game, cuz
Sooner or later you flicker in the eyes of fame
Immolations absolute
You can't say what you said and give up the cutest eyes
Defamations obsolete
Take it all back what you said, now, take it back
You went behind my back for the very last time
