A Friendly Warning by Cassandra Farthing (1st)

Whatever lies you’ve spun
There are plenty to choose
You better run

You’ve had your fun
Now it’s your turn to lose
Whatever lies you’ve spun

Don’t think I saw none
Of the booze
You better run

I used to won-
der about the clues
(and) whatever lies you’ve spun

I found your gun
That was on the news
You better run

I’m long done
Give up your ruse
Whatever lies you’ve spun
You better run
