lyrics

talking with my dad on the telephone
everyone deserves to die
pinned in your bathroom, I wanna go home
bathe the flesh till it falls off the bone again
falls off the bone again
falls off the bone again
hang up the phone again

kissing my teachers under the bleachers
shopping with my mom and buying new sneakers
walking at the mall and talking with friends
pointing the barrel straight at my head
pressing a knife into my chest
inviting a stranger into my bed
calling a cab
and sleeping on the couch instead

dig into the sand until you find me there
pull me from the rocks and comb my hair
forced into water, gasping for air
dragged from the river and wearing new underwear
I was the son and heir
gasping alone for air
drowning but I don’t care

kissing my teachers under the bleachers
shopping with my mom and buying new sneakers
walking at the mall and talking with friends
pointing the barrel straight at my head
biting your lips until they turn red
tear down the poster and rip it to shreds
lying in the bathroom, wishing you were dead

please don’t ask me why
hand slipped onto thigh
anticipating your reply
shutting tight my eyes

spreading like a plague on the telephone
yanking on his arm until you break the bone
you were a monster, begging to have her
filling your body with muscle enhancer
you were the dancer, mouth filled with cancer
wards falling out
but they’re all wrong answers...

kissing my teachers under the bleachers
shopping with my mom and buying new sneakers
walking at the mall and talking with friends
pointing the barrel straight at my head
pressing a knife into my chest
inviting a stranger into my bed
calling my mom
and sleeping, sleeping
