Riff: Poliça – “Smug”

Oct 22, 2013

It’s really quite confusing/You’re pushing me away and then you’re pulling/You wear smug so very well/If you were in love with me/I could never tell

from Smug lyrics by Polica

Poison flows from the words of Channy like an angry snake riled to aggravation. She hisses and snaps with fangs that drip with acrid venom, and just as she’s about to attack she lets out an anguished cry – a spot on testimony of a woman scorned; [LISTEN].
