Last Midnight Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Verse 2
It's the last midnight
It's the last wish
It's the last midnight
Soon it will be boom
Told a little lie
Stole a little gold
Broke a little vow
Did you?
Verse 3
Had to get your prince
Had to get your cow
And to get your wish
Doesn't matter how
Anyway, it doesn't matter now
Verse 4
It's the last midnight
It's the boom
Nothing but a vast midnight
Everybody smashed flat!
Verse 5
Nothing we can do
Not exactly true
We could always give her the boy
Verse 6
No, of course what really matters is the blame
Someone you can blame
Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy
Placing the blame
If that's the aim
Give me the blame
Just give me the boy
Verse 7
No! (No)
Verse 8
You're so nice
You're not good
You're not bad
You're just nice
I'm not good
I'm not nice
I'm just right
I'm the witch
You're the world
Verse 9
I'm a hitch
I'm what no one believes
I'm the witch
You're all liars and thieves
Like his father
Like his son will be, too
Oh, why bother?
You'll just do what you do
Verse 10
It's the last midnight
So, goodbye all
Coming at you fast, midnight
Soon you'll see the sky fall
Here, you want a bean?
Have another bean
Beans were made for making you rich!
Plant them and they soar
Here, you want some more?
Listen to the roar
Giants by the score!
Well, you can blame another witch
Verse 11
It's the last midnight
It's the last verse
Now, before it's past midnight
I'm leaving you my last curse
Verse 12
I'm leaving you alone
You can tend the garden, it's yours
Separate and alone
Everybody down on all fours
Verse 13
All right, mother, when?
Lost the beans again!
Punish me the way you did then!
Give me claws and a hunch
Just away from this bunch
And the gloom
And the doom
And the boom
