lyrics

I don't like you; I never did
With a dangerous body but the brain of a kid
‘Twas a poisonous folly but I offered you a bid
Even you don't have to tell me that you're better than this
And you still haunt me; yeah I'll admit
But I'm sick of the stop motion slowed to a skid
If you want to take a picture and you get what you give
Find a mirror and remember that you won't get shit

Watch this fall to bits
It’s so heavy with the
Weight of the skin
Stretching over the abyss
No, no
Blinded by a tryst
You broke the levee
With a shy smile and
A metaphorical fist
No, no

Call me Rover; throw me a bone
There’s a collar on my neck, but I’ve run away from home
If you’re gonna be my owner then you gotta hold your own
Lest I dig below the fence and leave you loyally alone
We’ve lived this cycle; yeah, it’s been years
You can build yourself a house with the walls made of fears
I don’t want to play the game; you’ve got lips and I’ve got ears
Or I’ll get back up on my horse, and I’ll fucking disappear

Jump, girl, take the risk
It’s not noble
Knowing if you never live
Then you don’t even exist
No, no
