Lyrics

[Voice-over: Florence Bell]
True, you're my true. My hangman trick (trick, trick) (laughs)

[Verse 1]
He'll use the love to keep you here
He'll break your heart to make sure that I'm aware
Summer times you feel like a trick
Like a hangman word that no-one ever gets

[Chorus]
The tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
He's a tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
For the tinfoil -
It's times like this I feel tricked into waking up

[Verse 2]
Summer times you feel like a child
The bitter taste it makes a mess inside your mouth
Swallow down to get it out
It's like a key, it sets you free from all the mess and stress I found

[Voice-over: Florence Bell]
I don't think I know who you are anymore

[Chorus]
The tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
He's a tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
For the tinfoil -
It's times like this I feel tricked into waking up (boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy)
He's a tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
For the tinfoil -

I don't think I'll ever make it up to you
And I don't think I'll ever make it up to you

[Chorus]
The tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
He's a tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
For the tinfoil -
It's times like this I feel tricked into waking up
It's times like this I feel tricked into waking up

[Voice-over: Florence Bell] (fractured)
Dragged me down, used me up, he cracked my lips, he burned in my chest
He slapped my ar-, slapped my ar-, he slapped my arms, he cracked my lips
I pray you never see me cry, I don't wanna give you the sati-
Dragged me down, used me up, he cracked my lips, he burned in my chest, he slapped my arms, and sucked my ki-
Bartered for like an accolade
He slapped my arms, he sucked my kiss

[Chorus]
The tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
He's a tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
For the tinfoil -
It's times like this I feel tricked into waking up (boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy)
He's a tinfoil boy, boy, boy, boy, boy, boy
For the tinfoil
