The Art of Bargaining

from by Red Handed Denial

/

lyrics

Standing tall
Chest out and do not alter intentions
Keep speaking with conviction and nevermind the distractions
One more routine transaction laced with elegance and tact
Don’t bother with the bullshit and let’s just focus on the facts

Just stay awhile
What’s the hurry
You see, my hands are tied
Just slow down
Let’s not get hasty my friend
Fancy seeing you again

So let’s make a bargain
Sign on the line
Who would I be without my word
Hold up your end and I’ll hold up mine
Why would I lie

Patience, fleeting slowly and wearing thin
Pressure, caving in
Oh why me, why me
Why me and why not them

This art of persuasion
Bending the heart and mind
Swaying the truth again
So take a deep breath in and swallow the lies

I might be guilty
Can a person change
I’ll say it like I mean it, but believe it? That’s insane!
You’re only making this harder
I’ll make you an offer, an offer
An offer you can’t refuse

The world keeps on turning only to expire
’Til we’re reduced to dust and cast into the fire
You tell yourself it’s fine and everything’s okay
Keep fooling yourself until you’re ignorant again

Patience, fleeting slowly and wearing thin
Pressure, caving in
Oh why me, why me, why me

So I’ll make you an offer
I’ll make you an offer
I’ll make you an offer
I’ll make you an offer
An offer you can’t refuse
