lyrics

I PREY ON IT

Carrie Monkelbaan / Jay Clementi / Darden Smith

I can read the situation
Master of manipulation
I sense your weakness and your fears
Innocence in tears
And I prey on it

I know how to make you trust me
All the words that make you love me
My puppet on a string
You’ll do anything
And I prey on it

Tell you the truth
I hurt you and I liked it
That’s what I do
I know there’s nothing you can do about
Make you feel dirty and worthless
Make you think that you deserve it
and I prey on it

If I’m just being honest
Long ago I killed my conscience
It’s a certain kinda freedom
I see what I what I need
and I prey on

Tell you the truth
I hurt you and I liked it
That’s what I do
I know there’s nothing you can do about
Make you feel dirty and worthless
Make you think that you deserve it
and I prey on it

Nobody’s gonna listen to those stories that you tell
Anyway I got a plan to talk my way out of hell

Tell you the truth
I hurt you and I liked it
That’s what I do
I know there’s nothing you can do about
Make you feel dirty and worthless
Make you think that you deserve it
and I prey on it

I prey on it
I prey on it
I’ll make you never trust
Girl you’ll always feel my touch
And I prey on it
