First Trick

You baited the line
And I ate the hook
It was the first trick
In your book
Second trick
Play it cool
You are the hierophant
I am the fool
After the first trick
You got me sucked in

Ask me to stay
But you make me want to leave
Pulling a rabbit
Out of your sleeve
We take our act
All over town
Propping me up
Knocking me down
After the first trick
You got me sucked in

After the first trick
You got me sucked in
It was the first trick
That got me sunk

I'm finally getting hip
Imagine that
But one last trick
Fell from your hat
Last trick
You're out the door
Leaving me feelin'
Like I was your whore

After the first trick
You got me sucked in
