Tricked For The Last Time

Tricked for the last time - Hot Pink Halo

(A sequel to @gizo's Look Good In Black)

***

Your eyes are like the sun
They shine so bright and light me up
Then silently tell me
To run away

In your eyes I am alone
Captured in the spotlight
Trying desperately
To lead you home

My hope is like the sea
It comes crashing down then
Pulls away every time
You look at me

But I still dream of drowning
In your eyes until
I find a place where
We can be redeemed

And there's no easy way to tell you
I love you
So I'll just keep on fighting for what's right
Because our future isn't set

Your soul is like the night
It comes and goes before my eyes
Like you always hidden
From the light

But you still feel
This push and pull
Commanding you to
Kneel

And there's no easy way to tell you
I love you
So I'll just keep on fighting for what's right
Because our future isn't set

I can't have you and
I never wanted this for you
When you were mine
I'm not happy to be without you
But I've been tricked for the last time
Devil’s got me Lindt! Devil’s got me Lindt!

Tricked for the last time - gizo vs. the 17,455 (a sequel to Bad Dreams, by me, as Melon Like Heads)

it gets cold / at night
baby you’re coming home so I’ll be alright
you’ve been delayed / so it seems
it’s starting to feel like another of my bad dreams

where I wind up in love and alone
I wind up in love and alone

guess I’ve been played / again
reading the script without thought like a tired anchorman
and when I throw / back to you
there’s nothing but dead air that cries out Like Cockatoos

and I thought that you would come home
but I wound up in love and alone
I wound up in love and alone
when I though that you would come home

all of my joy / interrupt
tricked for the last time babe, and I’m giving up

I’ll end this in love and alone
I’ll end this in love and alone
I’ll end this in love and alone

Tricked For The Last Time - Paco del Stinko

You said you loved me
While floating above me
As I lay in the dentist chair
And (I don't know why)

Something just clicked in my mind (In my mind)
As I got tricked for the last time


I saw you standing
And reprimanding
As I hid in my fever bed
And (I don't know why)

Something just clicked in my mind (In my mind)
As I got tricked for the last time


How many times
Did I see your eyes
Looking into mine
And then I realized it's all a lie

Breeze in my hair
In the salt air
As I baked under the sun
And (I don't know why)

Something just clicked in my mind (In my mind)
As I got tricked for the last time


I kissed you in my dream
But it wasn't as real as it seemed was it (I don't know)
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

COVID-19 - Tricked For The Last Time

Sequel to the dozen or so fight prompts from 2001-2003 I crammed into the lyrics

I'm falling in a black hole,
I'm drowning.
There's something off about me.
I'm all filled up with rage,
cause you've got me in a boiler!
No spoilers!
Let me spit some bars, show you all my scars
just like a memoir trapped in iron bars
I always thought I always think that it is killing me!
Now I'm angry all over and it's thrilling me!
You know if i was malt liquor you'd be swilling me!
It was like a poison pill when you'd chill with me
Alright, alright - you'd better shut your acid mouth!
Don't you know that you're the reason people look down on the south?
Gonna cut you like a razor blade
You're more invasive than a python in the everglades or Miami-Dade
You fucking snake!
Wrapped around me like a bad dream never faded
You're a fake, I'm so jaded, You're so dumb, I'm complicated
You're a fake, a deceiver,
when you speak I make believe I'm at your wake
So I could leave.
I don't have to fucking grieve you!

You laughed as you watched me degrade
(You're a knife, I'm lacerated)
Pulled the pin from the grenade
(You're a violent shockwave, I'm blown to rubble)
I feel so betrayed
(Motherfucker you have tricked me for the last time,
motherfucker you betray me.)


I was only joking!
If you were dead I wouldn't leave cause
I'm too goth to rock, I'd rather walk around the cemetery
Is it a red flag that I'm so morose?
Your LD50's so low that when you come close my heart slows
Laying on the table comatose, overdosed.
Adios, alarms are ringing cause I'm going into code
I think I just compared you to a fentanyl patch
Your body count's got me needing an escape hatch
I'm coming out fighting,
you'd better watch your face!
You're so aggravating got to put you in your place
You're lighting firecrackers in the house inside my head
You say pop-its I say nuclear warheads
You're like a whirlwind tearing up my brain
Baseball sized hail when the forecast's saying rain
120 MPH and it's driving me insane
Maybe someday you will realize my PAINNNNNNNN


You laughed as you watched me degrade
(You're a knife, I'm lacerated)
Pulled the pin from the grenade
(You're a violent shockwave, I'm blown to rubble)
I feel so betrayed
(Motherfucker you have tricked me for the last time,
motherfucker you betray me.)

I'm so tired.
And sick.
And beaten down by you.
Today I will rise and tell your face
you've tricked me for the last TIME.
MOTHERFUCKER YOU'VE BETRAYED ME FOR THE LAST TIME
MOTHERFUCKER YOU'VE TRICKED ME FOR THE LAST TIME
MOTHERFUCKER YOU'VE BETRAYED ME FOR THE LAST TIME
MOTHERFUCKER YOU'VE BETRAYED ME!!!!

You laughed as you watched me degrade
(You're a knife, I'm lacerated)
Pulled the pin from the grenade
(You're a violent shockwave, I'm blown to rubble)

I feel so betrayed
(Motherfucker you betrayed me for the last time
Motherfucker you betrayed me for the last time

You'll be dancing on my grave
(Motherfucker you betrayed me for the last time
motherfucker you betrayed me for the last time
motherfucker you betrayed me for the last time
motherfucker you betray me

Tricked For The Last Time
Pigfarmer Jr

I've been cursed and lied to for the very last time
I'm leaving tomorrow to get you off my mind
Don't wanna hear your stories, none of your tall tales
Don't wanna think about you and what that would entail

I've been tricked for the last time
And I'm leaving tomorrow

I've packed my bags, said my goodbyes
I guess I'm on the run
Partly from you and this shit-hole town
Hell, I don't even know what I'm running from

The road is my witness 'cause it doesn't lie
I guess it's my only friend
Hard as it is it never lets me down
I'll turn back if I hit a dead end

You keep saying you're in love with me
But I've been tricked for the last time
I'm out on the road trying to get some relief
'Cause I've been tricked for the very last time

Just walk away, you've gotta turn back
Forget me if you can
I'm finding myself out here on the road
I doubt that you could truly ever understand

I finally let lose, learned to relax
Smiling at every turn
I don't know why it hurts you to know
All of my bridges are gonna be burned

You keep saying you're in love with me
But I've been tricked for the last time
I'm out on the road trying to get some relief
'Cause I've been tricked for the very last time

I've been cursed and lied to for the very last time
I'm leaving tomorrow to get you off my mind

Tricked For The Last Time - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Your love has been a shell game
An invitation to play in your charm
Just when I began to follow
Your sleight off hand caught me off guard

Chorus:
But I’ve been tricked for the last time
When you call my name I’m gone
You played me like a fiddle
Now there’s no one left to hear the song

Your love was 3-card Monte
I put my trust in your hand and we played
Just when I commenced to winning
Your slight of hand kept me at bay

Chorus.

Your love had aces up its sleeve
You moved your piece when I looked away
You doped your horse, you greased the ball
You bribed the refs to make your call

Chorus x2

Tricked For the Last Time by Sweeney Toad (a sequel to Yellow Lasers by MC Frontalot)

Met her at the always sunny convention
Did I mention, she was looking for crack?

Had to give her a rose in a glass tube
That thousand pound dude in a fight milk shirt has passed food
He hungers to tack on mass, we run out the back
Smoke crack in the alley by the dumpster, she’s a lady

The metal plate echoes of a crying dumpster baby
We head back to my apartment with a thousand cats waiting
she does so bravely, Gravy is set boiling on the furnace
reminisce about the jail time of Ernest

And the murders in Scranton, we hypothesized was bastardman Dennis
And the pennis size of Danny Devito, neato
both agree on magnum sized, fantasize about the power bottom credo, conversation finito




Cause I got something for you
Beans and guac, wow burritos

I have tricked for the last time
Now taste my brown torpedos
X2

(Be bop ba bodda bope X4)



Sitting’ in the room upstairs dry humping my leg she’s smashing it
Jean shorts on getting hand jobs she is mashing it
I roll up the pcp loosely in a poorly rolled joint
She thinks we should bang under the bridge where she lives, it’s a bold point

It’s a cold point with a paddy’s pub thong always sunny attire
We kept warm under the bridge by a money fire
We crawled into a mattress with an old black man sleeping
We each drank a case of beer, wait am I peeing?

And I’m seeing for the first time a woman I love more than cats
A woman who taught me the wonders of scat
“Fire!” She said, and before I could make a sound though
Got a steaming mouth full of sweet brown torpedos




Cause I got something for you
Beans and guac, wow burritos

I have tricked for the last time
Now taste my brown torpedos X2

(Be bop ba bodda bope X4)

Tricked for the Last Time by The Magnetic Fyshwick Brothers (feat. Klifford J Fyshwick)

Trick me once; shame on you
Trick me twice; shame on you
Trick me three times; still shame on you
I'm a slow learner but at least I'm not you
I'm the lab rat suckin on a bitter pellet
All the other little rats are like "Man, why can't you smell it?"
Oh sure, I know about pleasure and pain
But there's something funny going on here in my brain
Can't count the times that I've been had
And you can't blame it all on Dad*
Down in the gutter there's no guarantees but I probably haven't been
Tricked for the last time

The definition of insanity is
Not wanting to party hard and spray your jizz
'Cause it's a long way to the top, or so I'm told
So I'm gonna have my kicks before I get old
It's a good thing to forgive and forget
But if you never learn your lesson, that's better yet
I've been abandoned and left for dead
But at least I'm not a boring shit who sleeps in a bed
I never know where I'll wake up
Or why it is I'm covered in slime
One thing's for sure here on the floor
I guarantee you baby
I've been tricked for the last time
Until the next time

I gotta flu shot

Tricked for the last Time.....
Toby roktot
Chorus:
Where ever I’ve gone
Where ever I’ve been
What ever situation, I fine myself in
It’s never worse than love’s dead-end
emotions turned on a dime
Well Darlin’ Thanks to you...
I’ve been tricked for the last time...

V1:
All pretty curls and sexy smiles
tied me around your finger...
had me up and, down acting the clown
Love struck fool ignoring danger

V2:
thought We were doing well
Till I saw you under the bleachers
On your back, legs in the air
Giving it up to the science teacher

Chorus:

V3
Walked away with a heavy heart
Walked away and kept on walking
Took a while in my young life
A while to ignore the talking

V4
thanks to you, yeah, thanks to you
It’s all behind me now
So don’t you worry none about me
Won’t do no good any how...

So when nothing new lays around you fall out and find another cover, you won’t say it out loud, you fall out and find another cover.

I’m a lap to lay in and a tonic for and itch but you sleep through my confessions like a science.
My house is just an old address that you have memorized and it’s on the way to someplace more inspired.

So when nothing new lays around you fall out and find another hand but you’ve got agency now like dead weight always on demand.

A balanced walk through gifts left on the floor, the ones you didn’t open were the sweetest. I’d take it off of us and wear it all real loose ‘cause it seems like it won’t fit you when your leaving.

So when nothing new lays around you fall out and find another cover but you won’t say it out loud, you fall out and find another cover.

Me and those suggestions from the atmosphere at hand baked into the evening and you mean it. A book of underwhelming when the latest tricks won’t keep, but no one stays up late enough to read it.

I like solid foods
When I'm in the mood to chew
and that is more often than not

soup is fine
at the start of the dinner
but i'll whine if that's all that you got

seventeen years of living a lie
i'd rather eat a pie than a bisque
but i'm getting too old, the soup has gone cold
and it's time for me to take this risk

i'm letting you in on the secret
i'm spilling out all of the beans
i'm shattering all the illusions
i'm telling you what it all means

what do i like
what do i like
what do i like
hmmm

i like attention
so i made lies about lunches
spewed random chunks about
soups by the bunches

hey progresso
need a hip new jingle?
they never called me back
about my hot new single


cause there's no money in soup raps
there's no money in soup raps
there's no money in soup raps
there's no money in soup raps


who told me that was a good idea?
hey i won't be tricked again
who told me that was a good idea?
hey i won't be tricked again

---------

what am i gonna do with all these chives?
they're still valid
put 'em on salad
or save 'em for my upcoming vegetable ballad


hope you're not upset
by my change of tune
ba-ba-bassooon

----------
get monkey with it
----------

say hello to my emotional support chimp
it's afraid of planes, and so we only take blimps
sits on my shoulder, throws turds at conservatives
shower my monkey with loads of superlatives

way to go monkey way to be great
one time in cairo
it saved me from a bad date


time to go bed
cause it's getting pretty late
