Wide Open (Foreword) - Niki

Are you lost little girl?
Where's your mama? (Good grief!)
Skin thick as bricks
Was it karma? How old are ya?
Watch your back, watch your step, watch your weight, watch your words too
They'll come at you with their teeth
And their rhinestone-covered sheaths

Word of warning
Straighten up
Tie your shoelaces up
There's never time to warm up when the jungle cools down
It's a goddamn cornucopia
Of your serpents and your scorpions
When you fall asleep baby, keep an eye wide open, hmm
Keep an eye wide open, hmm

All the wolves lick your cuts clad in Prada
With white grins, and tight grips
Blood oaths and loose lips
Smokin' stardust, mmm

Act like some pilgrims
Sing like some psalmists
Kiss like it's harmless
I hope you listen
There're too many demons
So girl don't you give in
To all of the voices around you saying you can spread your wings only if you spread those legs first, huh
That's the bread and b_tter of this place

B_tches with b_tter knives at the ready to spread the word to save their pretty face
So let these words be your saving grace
There's a much longer trail to blaze
And it's ours
(So straighten up!)
Kamikaze
Don't get sloppy
Don't get sloppy, mmm
(So straighten up!)
And keep an eye wide open, mmm
Keep an eye wide open, mmm
