DON'T SLAUGHTER ME

Written by JP Paulsen and Kenneth Gutterup

Baby you whisper silently out loud

Guess you're a spokesman for the crowd

You know the lie 'bout every truth and

Baby revenge is always monologue

Your words come out as heavy smog

Eye for an eye tooth for a tooth when

Jealousy of my unlike success

Is all it is and nothing less

Don't slaughter me

When all you wanna be

Is made like me

Believe it or doubt it

Don't be so cruel

You're being such a fool

And I'm not cool

To read all about it now

Baby we know each other from a screen

And I don't really think you're mean

Guess you once had a dream of yours and

Baby now everything I say and do

Reminds you of a girl you knew

Who had a dream worth fighting for when

Once she was living life out loud

Until she sold out to the crowd

Don't slaughter me

When all you wanna be

Is made like me

Believe it or doubt it

Don't be so cruel

You're being such a fool

And I'm not cool

To read all about it

All nights

All days

Always

Never a break

Don't slaughter me

I haven't done you wrong

It's just a song

Continue without it now

And now you're stuck there on a coach

While I'm stuck in a hotel lounge

My name in bold in the tabloid

Makes sure nobody will avoid

To read about what fool I am

You post a comment to condemn

When all the reason for your view

Is you want me to be like you

You want me to be like you

Since you can't be like me

Don't slaughter me...
