SNAKE OIL
PREP


Take his word if you want it
That burnt-out bird song
I'm not the one who's gonna talk you round (talk you round)
Knows how to sing to your instincts
That charm and snake oil
The little high before he brings you down (brings you down)

Doesn't matter how many words I waste
Banging on like a trebuchet
Pretty clear there's been a change of plan
Whatever you say

Just let the sun set over the slipway
As the last boat comes down
Always knew we were close to an ending
But I just couldn't work it out
I know you think he's some kind of real thing
The kind of truth you wanna find
But if you just needed someone pretending
I could have told you better lies
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)

Don't bet it all on the big smile
The presentation
You're not the only one to turn your head (turn your head)
He's got you caught at the turnstile
With no invitation
Watching the dust cloud vanish up ahead

Doesn't matter how many words I waste
Banging on like a trebuchet
Pretty clear there's been a change of plan
Whatever you say

Just let the sun set over the slipway
As the last boat comes down
Always knew we were close to an ending
But I just couldn't work it out
I know you think he's some kind of real thing
The kind of truth you wanna find
But if you just needed someone pretending
I could have told you better lies
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)

Doesn't matter how many words I waste
Head banging like a trebuchet
Pretty clear there's been a change of plan
Whatever you say

Just let the sun set over the slipway
As the last boat comes down
Always knew we were close to an ending
But I just couldn't work it out

I know you think he's some kind of real thing
The kind of truth you wanna find
But if you just needed someone pretending
I could have told you, I could have told you

Just let the sun set over the slipway
As the last boat comes down
Always knew we were close to an ending
But I just couldn't work it out

I know you think he's some kind of real thing
The kind of truth you wanna find
But if you just needed someone pretending
I could have told you better lies
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)
Don't say you believe it (Don't say you believe it)
