Crackerjack

I've seen the light at the end of the tunnel, she said
And I don't think that it's enough for me
I want to know I made my point across to you
And I'm a crackerjack shot, baby

How can you stand so calmly when
All you've heard is just a fucked up lie
Not another day will pass before
I lift the veil and kiss it all good-bye

I've tasted pain and smelled the sounds of rainbows
There's nothing new to make a feast of famine
Took just a glimpse of the truth to numb me
Like the priest that's wielded on a fresh caught salmon

If you ever feel the same way
Pretend to take my hand and don't look back
Never face another day of being
Disappointed by the prize in your Crackerjack

Ooh, is the other side any clearer?
Just wiped the steam all off my mirror
Was that you? Was that you?
Was that you that I saw?
Saluting me like the boy with his dog on the Crackerjack
Was that you? Was that you?
Was that you that I glanced?
Just a brief little flash of a smile before fading

How can you stand so calmly when
All you've heard is just a fucking lie
Not another day will pass before
I lift the veil and kiss it all good-bye
If you ever feel the same way
Pretend to take my hand and don't look back
Never face another day of being
Disappointed by the prize in your Crackerjack

I've seen the light at the end of the tunnel, he said
And I don't think that it's enough for me
I want to know I made my point across to you
And I'm a crackerjack shot, baby
