lyrics

Don’t say you didn’t see this coming
Don’t try and tell me you’re surprised
I know you’re really not that stupid
And there’s nothing wrong with your beady eyes

I came and told you my sad story
And I remember everything I swore
But you knew I was a scorpion
Before we left the shore

I couldn’t make it 'cross this water
Without the guidance of a friend
I know at first you were suspicious
But I won you over in the end

I said the issue was survival
And I said I’d never try a thing
But you knew I was a scorpion
Before you felt my sting

La-la-la

Now do you feel you’ve been mistreated
And do you feel I’ve let you down?
Well the memory of all the ways I’ve cheated
May that be a consolation while we drown
I knew I really had you going
When I stood up to testify
But you knew I was a scorpion
Did you think I couldn’t lie?
Yeah, you knew I was a scorpion
And now we’re gonna die

La-la-la
And now we’re gonna die
