I'm breathing out smoke
I'm calling you out
You are a current
You're dragging me down
And I ate the head
Off the newborn child
Don't look at me that way
You never said I couldn't

I'm drinking your fuel
And I'm twisting the sound
Of metal on metal
This kiss was oblivious
But I stole the chord
That made the world cry
And I put it in your ears
Behind your eyes

It's like swimming with sharks
You're just a piece of steak
Under the covers but
I'm always awake
And I buried myself
Beneath a neon light
So when the shadows come for me
I won't be hard to find

But I am a madman
No I am a saint
It's the spin of the press
That gives me power baby
And you'll never know
Cause I'll never reveal
But I've got a world
Between both of my ears

Do you want to stay?
Do you want to be a part of me
Do you want to become my best friend
I may seem skitzo but just know
I'm not crazy
Do you want to hear
What it's like when I
Pound nails through both my ears
And I've grown so bored with being spoonfed
I stopped trying
And started living it up
