P!ATD: “The Ballad of Mona Lisa” Lyrics

“The Ballad of Mona Lisa”
She paints her fingers with a close precision.
He starts to notice empty bottles of gin.
And takes a moment to assess the sin she’s paid for…
A lonely speaker in a conversation.
Her words are swimming through his ears again.
There’s nothing wrong with just taste of what you paid for.
Say what you mean,
tell me im right,
and let the sun rain down on me.
Give me a sign.
I wanna believe.

Whoa Mona Lisa, you’re guaranteed to run this town.
Whoa Mona Lisa I’d pay to see you frown.

He senses something, call it desperation
Another dollar, another day
and if she has the proper words to say, she would tell him,
but she’d have nothing left to sell him…

Say what you mean,
tell me im right,
and let the sun rain down on me.
Give me a sign.
I wanna believe.

Whoa Mona Lisa, you’re guaranteed to run this town.
Whoa Mona Lisa I’d pay to see you frown.

Oh Mona Lisa
Say what you mean,
tell me im right,
and let the sun rain down on me.
Give me a sign.
I wanna believe.

Whoa Mona Lisa, you’re guaranteed to run this town.
Whoa Mona Lisa I’d pay to see you frown.
Say what you mean,
tell me im right,
and let the sun rain down on me.
Give me a sign.
I wanna believe.
There’s nothing wrong with just a taste of what you paid for….
