this track had too much sugar as a child


i don't have the lyrics handy but this is the original poem that the song came from:

Your tears are like bullets
Every one one is meant to pierce
I want retribution
But my heart is switchin gears

Who am I and what must I give up?
Who am I and what must I give up?
Accept embrace unwind and absolve
Surrender to the pain but what have we solved?

You’re like an old headline and a stale cigar
You kidnapped my integrity and stuffed it in a jar

I’m tired of watchin over me
I’m tired of goin to class
Just lookin for some ovaries
So shove it up your ass

You smoked a camel thru your pediatric teeth
And your Cotton t-shirt clingin to what’s hangin’ underneath
When you drive me to crazy you can look me in the eye
Underneath the eucalyptis I’ll be hangin out to dry

You’re ornamentation in a surplus world
You want an ovation but you’re just an average girl

Your addle-brained emotion’s always running away
Your thoughts are so transparent I can see to yesterday

I’m out of hope and I’m out of wish
Just give me some rope and let it swish
