  • I caught you on the offensive
    but you've levelled my defences
    Blood on my face or is it lipstick?
    twin projectiles, were they ballistic?
    I tried a little gentle persuasion
    but you insisted on an invasion
    I was getting my senses back
    you launched a full frontal attack
    Call the hostilities to a halt
    I can't cope with this brutal assault
    I've tried it all from money to charm
    I may as well unilateral disarm
    You foiled my plants with a mind detector
    I'm a conscientious objector
    The war you started was all out
    I didn't mean for us to fall out
    You laid waste to my apartment
    with a saturation bombardment
    Your mental state was on activate
    It was ready and set to detonate
    Somewhere I think that we got it wrong
    I found myself sitting on a time bomb
    The looks you're giving me are pure corrosive
    I'd better watch out 'cos you're highly explosive
    I'm beaten, I'm bloody, I'm aching, I'm sore
    I can't take anymore of this civil war
    I'm gonna surrender 'cos I've had enough
    If this is your idea of playing it rough
    When all this is over I'll get the blame
    for allowing escalation of your war games
    I once was your ally, I once was your friend
    But now it seems it's over and it looks like the end
