Just wondering if anyone can help me out with the lyrics to this song. I have searched for it, but to avail. Another set of ears would be appreciated [disclaimer: i am in no way associated with this artist]:


If this is the first time you've heard of Starlit and you like it, you can hear the rest of her album, here:
www.reverbnation.com...

Thanks in advance and here's what I have so far:

?(Pretty)? [?] with praise and glory
Build that altar 7 stories
[?] built on lies
?(Pin a)? tail on your new ?(thighs)?

Adoration and obsession
Clean your sins with false confession
Something's dead behind your eyes
Lose yourself in idle lies


Chorus
And that which nourishes
Will try to destroy me
And those who draw me near
Will try to deploy me

God complex

We'll make a drug of her [god complex]
And then, we'll smother her
We'll feed her til she's fat
Stick that knife in her back


Opinions of the minions
Spread like flies drawn to the light
Only they burn in their own saturation
Drown in their own admiration

Think you know what they know better
Cross them, wear that scarlet letter
So I run just to shed her
Comfort her just to bed her


Chorus

? (god complex)
Two-faced ?
God complex ?(mutiny)?
?(We'd love)? her brutally


You don't even know me
No you won't control me
And you'll never run me

You build it up
Just to knock it down

A ? becomes ?
Find a new commander
Poison makes you plunder

Your kingdom's ?
I reject the crown

We'll make a drug of her [god complex]
And then, we'll smother her
We'll feed her til she's fat
Stick that knife in her back
? [god complex]
Two-faced ?
God complex ?(mutiny)?
We'd[?] love her butally

We'll make a drug of her [god complex]
And then we'll smother her [god complex x 8

[witty, gush?] with praise and glory
built that altar seven stories

[?] deception built on lies

Adoration and obsession
clean your sins with false confession
something's dead behind your eyes
lose yourself in idle lies


The altar seven stories bit seems like it might be a reference to Numbers 23:1 "And Balaam said to Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams."

EDIT:

after a few more listens, I'm wondering about the first 2 words.

It could be "pretty g-sh" where - is likely a violation of ToS ("a")

There's definitely a word ending in 'tty' followed by one ending in 'sh' and that would fit with the "pin the tail on your new thighs" line. As far as the word before "deception" it's definitely a single syllable.. "cheap" would work.

The song's not bad.

When in doubt, just say "Baby." It worked for Zeppelin.

Defintely "clean your sins" and "dead behind your eyes". Witty and gush? Gush wants to fit pertaining to praise and glory, but witty? Still not sure, gunna check it again, thanks brutha!

I want to agree with deception but it makes the use of the words "lies" in the same line redundant?

That's interesting for sure, thanks for bringing it up!

An elaborate deception could involve multiple lies.


It's definitely "We'd love her brutally"

the line before I think is "sac-charine-ly sweet [?-ing"]" could be nothing, laughing or even young thing.

two-faced and then it really sounds like "good" and then probably "at" and here again it's definitely something ending with "ing" and it sounds like possibly "laughing"

so that would be:

sac-charine-ly sweet [?-ing]
two-face, good (at?) [?-ing]

honestly they both kind of sound like "laughing" which would seem implausible

also:

I think the first line here is:

worship becomes slander
find a new commander
poison makes you [?]

It's not plunder, it's sounds an awful like candor but that wouldn't make any sense as it's a noun, unless it's not "make"

Did you upload this video? If not, ask the uploader. Probably a fan and knows every single word.

Nice work! Saccharine! I never would have come up with that! I do like the "worship becomes slander" fit. Some of the other stuff at first glance are close at the very least. Thank you for helping me out!

I love this girl's album. Most of the songs on it totally resonate with me, which is pretty cool. Anyways, if ya check out her other songs (from the album, she has a few non-album songs, and ya, i dunno, not nearly as good as the album), lemme know what ya think, if yer so inclined.
