Bullshit King
Juliette Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

He's a bullshit king and he dwells in his cave
He'll tell you pretty things just to make you behave
He knows the tricks of his trade
He's got all his toys on parade

You better watch what you do
You better watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away
You better watch what you do
You better watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away

He's convered in dandelions just to show you he's sensitive
Rattling the snake of the devine and everything you thought to believe in
Spinning yarn and lace up and down the cracks of your face

You better watch what you do
You better watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away
You better watch what you do
You better watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away

Watch what you say, watch what you say, watch what you say
That's right give me something to believe in

This is the beginning, this is the beginning for you and me
Oh he's a bullshit king don't you know what I mean
He's a bullshit king you know what I mean

You better watch what you do
You better watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away
You better watch what you do
You better watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away
You better watch what you do
Watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away
Watch what you do
Watch what you say
He'll be coming for you and take you so far away

Watch what you say, watch what you say




He's a bullshit king
Baby, I just wanna tell you I love you, you mean everything to me
