Lyrics

The Promise

You won the pageant by just being born
Held them in your palm
When they watched you perform
Worked enough pole
To climb your way into film
Now won’t Daddy be proud

Thirty minutes left till you go on
To powder up your nose
And paint your face off
The final moments
You visualize pleasing him
And earning your bond to the warmth

And it’s suddenly all you have to roll with
Pandering out to the warmth
And it’s sure to be something to forget

But soon
You’re gonna’ make them all
Respect the promise

Someday
You’re gonna’ take yourself
Away from all this

Standing naked before the “in” crowd
The cameras start to roll
As you take your first bow
Contemplating the elegance of your hair
Unraveling now

Fantasizing of when you were young
And everyone would gather ‘round as you spun
Daddy knew that you did it all just for him
And groomed you to bleed for the warmth

And it’s suddenly all you have to roll with
Pandering out to the warmth
And you’re gonna’ be all he ever wanted
All the years that he held you to the warmth
And it’s sure to be something
They may not see it now

But soon
You’re gonna’ make them all
Respect the promise

Someday
You’re gonna’ take yourself
Away from all this

All that
The others have you want
And your time has come now

Nothing
Can hold you back from what
You’re meant to be now

Nothing
