I Won The Pageant

lyrics

I won the pageant but I sank the ship
I bought the sun only to swallow it
I amputated off my right hand man
I'm all he had, I hope he understands
Hunger taught me every trick I know
Now my gut is good as gold

Nobody noticed how much the glitter meant to me
Nobody noticed ’til I set all the greyhounds free

So chain me to the gate, whip me into shape
I’m dying for a win that's not in
The circuit I was born for, running from a kept score
Jury’s gonna know my name in the worst way
I’ve all but lost the game since I won the pageant

I won the pageant ‘cause I blew the judge
I ate my words then they gave me the runs
I was a siren with imperfect pitch
Wore a tuxedo with a tailored fit
Starving bodies racing for a bite
I’ve got something you can’t pair with wine

Nobody noticed how much the glitter meant to me
Nobody noticed ’til I set all the greyhounds free

So chain me to the gate, whip me into shape
I’m desperate for a win that's not in
The circuit I was born for, running from a kept score
Jury’s gonna know my name in the worst way
I’ve all but lost the game since I won the pageant

They said I had a face for radio but sold me some lashes for extra luck
I’m moving backwards towards the future and I’m terrified to look
I’m never gonna age with grace or die a hero or rot in Hell, so I
Can see myself in all the starlets we’ve evicted from our minds

I’ve all but crashed the plane since I won
I’ve all but fled the stage since I won
I’ve all but lost the game since I won the pageant
