you have a pair
of scissors for a mouth
and i don't want to be around you anymore
your pop-punk pals
have started smoking now
because they don't want to hear my band play anymore
so if you need to set out side too
that's okay
i know you're breathing through the noises
tasting parts of cooler days
when you were happy to be sad
still obsessed with all the ways
you could make yourself feel human
you could tangle up your veins
you could make yourself feel human
for a day
you have a pair
of needle-pointed eyes
and i don't want to watch you watch me anymore
i know you're good
at all those movements you despise
but i don't want to hear their band play anymore
any chance i get i'd strangle
things you see when you're asleep
(any chance i get i'd strangle you)
if i'm not allowed to quote you
then you're not allowed to speak
i double-dog dare you
to move your car
so we can leave
your friends won't need to knock you down
leave that up to me
your friends will knock you down
