The Dresden Dolls Truce Lyrics

You can have washington i’ll take new jersey

You can have london but i want new york city

I should get providence i’ve got a job now

Los angeles – obvious – that’s where you belong now

You can have africa asia australia

As long as you keep your hands off cafe pamplona

We can split germany right down the middle

You’d hate it there anyway

Take berlin and well call it even

You can take all of the carry-on baggage

I’ll trade the saskia jokes for the alphabet language

And special occasions we’ll split between parents

Who forced us to hate them on alternating weekends

You call it over and i call you psycho

Significant other?

Just say we were lovers and we’ll call it even

We’ll call it even

I am the ground zero ex-friend you ordered

Disgused as a hero to get past your borders

I know when i’m wanted i’ll leave when you ask me to

Mind my own business and speak when i’m spoken to

I am the tower around which you orbited

I am not proud i am just taking orders

I fall to the groud within moments of impact

I hit back if hit

And attack if attacked

You get route 2 between concord and lexington

I want mass ave from the sqaure to my apartment

And if we should meet through some misunderstanding

Ill be very sweet very patient and forgiving

(now get off my side of the state)

And if we should meet one another in passing

Despite these techniques there is sometimes no avoiding

(there must be some kind of mistake)

We’ll raise high our white flags and say hi and shake hands

Declaring the land we’re on unamerican

We’ll call it even

I am the tower around which you orbited

I am not proud i am just taking orders

I fall to the groud within moments of impact

I hit back if hit

And attack if attacked

I am an accident waiting to happen

I’m laughing like mad while you strangle the captain

My place may be taken, but make no mistake

From a little black black box i can say without shame

That you’ve lost

Do you know what you’ve lost?

So take whatever you’d like

I’ll strike like the States on fire

You won’t sleep very tight

No hiding

No safe covers

Make your bed and now lie

Just like you always do

You can fake it for the papers but i’m on to you….
