Narrow your eyes a bit before you walk into it. It's a set up and you're a patsy.
You thought you were ready but they had your number, they tapped your weakness (with clever signage.)
Take what you want while you're soaking in it but don't be so god damned fascinated.

Don't be so fascinated. You're not so fascinating as you might think.

In the best of all possible worlds you're the luckiest of the luckiest of the girls.
You laid out your bait and waited and waited.
The biggest fish bit.
Now he's swimming away with it.
Trolling, trolling, trolling the deep for a peach among creeps.

You're a baby, just waiting, bottoms up on your blanket for the biggest hand to come and spank it.

Lay your tools out on the desktop.
Pull your boots on and we'll get messed up.
Decorate the walls with skulls.
We'll take one shot for each prick who calls.
You wear the ring and I'll eat the cake of the one who you most fascinate.
