Warpaint Songtext

Keep your warpaint on
The locusts have come
Keep your warpaint on
The rats fight for the crumbs
Keep your warpaint on
While we cook here in the sun
Keep your warpaint on

Keep your warpaint on
While your husbands pretend
That it’ll be alright
But the message fails to send
When the rains don’t come
When the levee breaks again
Keep your warpaint on
Keep your warpaint on

I know November broke your heart
The dice were loaded from the start
One promise for American girls
No mercy in a man's world

No mercy in a man
No mercy in a man’s world
I know
No mercy in a man
No mercy in a man’s world
I know

Keep your warpaint on
The street lights all burned out
From sea to shining sea
The smell of sulphur in the clouds
You’ve got your keys between your fingers
As if you had a choice
Keep your keys between your fingers
Your mother’s blood in your voice

I know November broke your heart
The dice were loaded from the start
One promise for American girls
There's no mercy in a man's world

No mercy in a man
No mercy in a man’s world
I know
No mercy in a man
No mercy in a man’s world
I know

No mercy in a man
No mercy in a man’s world
I know
No mercy in a man
No mercy in a man’s world
I know
