Verse 1

Human psychology, it's really not that complicated,

But it sure as hell is twisted, I'll have to

Admit to that sad little fact given how you

Pretend like I don't exist when I'm in the same room.

You ignore me when I'm head over heels.

Only you know how empowering it feels.

As for me?

You see,

Chorus

It's like a frustrating game of snakes and ladders-

Every single time I climb up a little bit closer to your heart,

You hurriedly inject your venom into my veins,

And I fall down hard on the ground, I'm back at the start.

And I keep rolling the dice,

Again and again and again,

I try to rid your heart of your ice,

But I only bring myself pain.

And I keep rolling the dice in this game of snakes and ladders,

But it's been going on so long, I've lost score, what can be sadder?

Verse 2

Well, how about the fact that if you'd let me win,

I'd have been your reason to smile wider?

You're caught in your own web, spider.

Luring in a mate, you end up alone when you kill it.

Yes, you've killed my smile long ago.

Cause I loved you, don't you know?

Where does that leave me?

You see,

Chorus

It's like a frustrating game of snakes and ladders-

Every single time I climb up a little bit closer to your heart,

You hurriedly inject your venom into my veins,

And I fall down hard on the ground, I'm back at the start.

And I keep rolling the dice,

Again and again and again,

I try to rid your heart of your ice,

But I only bring myself pain.

And I keep rolling the dice in this game of snakes and ladders,

And it hurts so bad to breathe, like you're choking my air bladder!

Bridge

Up and down, up and down,

Snakes and ladders, all over the town-

Memories here, there, everywhere,

Christmas lights or fast food joint,

Everything's about you, it's just not fair,

I meet you at every turning point,

Every corner, every street,

It's like you're tied to my feet,

And the game goes on and on and on…

I let go, finally pull the plug,

Then you give my heart a little tug,

And I jump right back at this game of snakes and ladders.

I'm at the mercy of your sweet whim, what can be sadder?

Chorus

It's like a frustrating game of snakes and ladders-

Every single time I climb up a little bit closer to your heart,

You hurriedly inject your venom into my veins,

And I fall down hard on the ground, I'm back at the start.

And I keep rolling the dice,

Again and again and again,

I try to rid your heart of your ice,

But I only bring myself pain.

And I keep rolling the dice in this game of snakes and ladders,

But it's been going on so long, I've lost score, what can be sadder?

Outro

Human psychology, it's really not that complicated,

But it sure as hell is twisted,

You're twisted,

And you've twisted my heart.

Snakes and ladders,

I'm back at the start.
