CONSEQUENCES ©Joy Flanakin
Music and Lyrics by Joy Flanakin

Well, you thought you could be a schmuck
And then go and cover it up
Well I'm here to tell you
They'll be consequences

Well, I bought all of your lies
And you made me compromise
Well, honey here it comes
Consequences

How could you be so blind
Never to realize
That in a very short time
You'll be cut down to size

Well you called it love and then covered it up
You were riding high and full of luck
But you'll see the sky's yea the sky's
about to fall

You thought you had it under control
You thought you had me bought and sold
The things you've done will follow you
the rest of your life

How could you be so blind
Never to realize
That in a very short time
You'll be cut down to size

So glad I found out in time
So glad I never called you mine
So glad I never was your wife

Oh consequences, sweet revenge
Consequences it all depends
If in time you will
Apologize

But by then it will be too late
By then you have sealed your fate
Goodbye schmuck
Tuck your tail and run

And I hope I'll be around
To see it all coming down
Glass houses falling to the ground
The sound of consequences

There will be consequences
