My Apollo's highly anticipated debut single!


My silver tongued temptress posed as an empress
That handsome Apollo's been making me jealous
Pushed off the deep end, I fell through the ceiling
Cried out for mercy, but no one was listening
Except for Geneva, who saved me from Lucifer
Escaped from the grasps of that poor executioner
Made a home in the valley, but the shackles were heavy
They left permanent indents 'cause I wasn't ready for love

There were car bombs and hunger strikes, leather gangs on motor bikes
Gambling their possessions but soon they'll have to hitchhike
You better think twice before you roll the dice, when you leave it up to chance you're gonna learn to pay the price
God sent us royalty, we nailed him to a crucifix
Guess that only goes to show that getting big is dangerous
Safer to stay small, safer to stay quiet, safer to be simple, much more fun to start a riot

Please be gentle when you hit me
I may not handle the news very well, so try to speak very slow when you tell me

I've got a joke that I heard at a nightclub
How many actors does it take to change a light-bulb
"1-2-3-4-5, but really only 1, they don't ever want to give their spotlight up"
And in my head, I'm the star of my own TV show
Going on it's eighteenth season, then only nine to go
And then we'll say that it was fun while it lasted
At first I wasn't sure we'd make it past the pilot
But here we are, I was wrong, I was out of line
I don't sound that smart when I improvise
I feel sick, I'm getting dizzy on the oxygen
Something's wrong must be another side effect of love

Please be gentle when you hit me
I may not handle the news very well, so try to speak very slow when you tell me
