Gaslighter

Gaslight - 1970 - Gaslight - Front

An orange billboard,

festooned with

strands of yellow straw,

designed to swivel

on a point greased

with rancid lard.

Gaslighter *

He tweets it out at night
The mean and callous type
Something’s new, always different from before.

Judging and spinning
Ooh, maga’s cheer and lefties running for the door
He flips the script without batting any eye
Your mouth hangs open and ask yourself why
He tells you another lie, a narcissist gaslighter.

Control’s the matter
If you wanna tame the world
Ya gotta spin far

(Oh here he comes)

Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter

Don’t listen if I were you
I know what he can do
He’s deadly man, he could make you wonder if you’re sane
Spin over matter
Ooh, ugly is there and a vacuum instead of a heart

(Oh here he comes)

Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
(Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
He’s a gaslighter
(Oh here he comes)
Watch out boy he’ll chew you up
(Oh here he comes)
