Track Name: A Means To An End
it's a means to an end
you want me to pretend
it's just an innocent gesture
but you're wearing me down

when you're wearing that dress
now I'm aware of the pressure
of you on my arm
no more space between us

nowhere I can run
no grace in an exit
I'm under the gun
I cannot redirect it

my world is on fire
I burn in your orbit
you're pulling me higher
I can no longer ignore it
feed off this desire
'til I can restore it
now was it pretend?
was I a means to an end?
Track Name: A Means To An End (Leæther Strip remix)
it's a means to an end
you want me to pretend
it's just an innocent gesture
but you're wearing me down

when you're wearing that dress
now I'm aware of the pressure
of you on my arm
no more space between us

nowhere I can run
no grace in an exit
I'm under the gun
I cannot redirect it

my world is on fire
I burn in your orbit
you're pulling me higher
I can no longer ignore it
feed off this desire
'til I can restore it
now was it pretend?
was I a means to an end?
