lyrics

Plug me in
And turn me on
Flip the switch
And everything you know is gone
Cross the wire
And short the fuse
Turn me off
There’s nothing else for you to lose

Why did you lie to me?
Why did you steal from me?
Why did you promise me?
Why did you con me?

Plug me in
And turn me on
Flip the switch
And everything you know is gone
Cross the wire
And short the fuse
Turn me off
There’s nothing else for you to lose

Why did you con me?

When you look around and you see the lie
When you’re trapped inside and you don’t know why
When the words they come but none of it’s true
I wonder why I ever believed in you

Con Artist
You are a
Con Artist

When you walk away and there’s nothing there
When you break apart what you can’t repair
When the stakes are high and your feeling low
In the end you always pick up and go

Con Artist
You are a
Con Artist

When it’s dark and cold and the lights grow dim
When the pain inside gets the best of him
When you can’t believe all the things you see
Why the hell does it have to happen to me?

Con Artist
You are a
Con Artist

Why did you lie to me?
Why did you steal from me?
Why did you promise me?
Why did you con me?

Plug me in
And turn me on
Flip the switch
And everything you know is gone
Cross the wire
And short the fuse
Turn me off
There’s nothing else for you to lose

Why did you con me?

When you need a fix and you make a deal
When you’re out of luck and you have to steal
When you realize that I see right through
Did you really think I believed in you?

Con Artist
You are a
Con Artist

When you take a chance and you risk it all
When your left alone and you have to fall
When you throw away everything you knew
Do you know that I am brainwashing you?

Con Artist
You are a
Con Artist
