big hands, big mouth, big teeth, big shoulders pushing boulders, boulders the captains of the clip sit thinking as this ship is sinking one friday night the empire state was alight friday night the empire state is alright with me if they get used to being sussed out they might learn to fear it i had my eyes already plucked out didn't want to hear it one friday night the empire state was alight friday night the empire state is alright with me and i know it sounds strange but you were right and i know it sounds strange but i was wrong again i let them win... religion brought me to my knees so i ain't misbehavin' i searched far and wide over seas to find something to save

your movie posters on my wall you better believe i watched them all brilliant young actor in my head brilliant young actor on my bed he said put it away or it's mine excuse me while i fangirl now you are the only one who knows it's funny eh, where the minds goes i heard they're not dating, they're just friends strangers have strange obsessions excuse me while i fangirl now you are the only one who knows i felt bad enough, secretly on fire i felt bored enough and i ain't even mad my desperate longing holds a truth secret to an eternal youth attractive and young you'll stay the same who among you can say the same

this is a retraction some things are better unsaid did it get a reaction? was the message sent? it must have been someone show me them fiery eyes show me to the action teach me to improvise it's all been said and you couldn't defend it you threw what you had in the fires again and pretend to bury it all make a call and start making some plans for these dirty hands is there anyone out there past the borderlines? would you know where to find me if i gave you a time? it was good at the outset i thought you could fill me up now we're stuck in the mindset nothing is good enough and you're way too tired to meet my demands got your feet on the floor but they don't want to dance and you said you had enough of my plans so start wiping the stains and the sands from my dirty hands this is a retraction

idk 03:14
you had a nervous breakdown in your car and drove into an empty parking lot bawled your eyes out in the back seat my friends are all so alike they like to drink cheap wine from boxes they like to argue with me about science and they always win, they always win cause i don't know anything i don't know anything and you don't know anything i don't know i can't believe how old we got we were prettier when we were younger we were happier when we were shorter but stronger we were happier when we were sober-er life is beautiful now that it's over or at least we think it is, at least we think but we don't know anything we don't know anything you don't know anything i don't know i don't know (rock and roll) if i die so young i hope they bury me under a tombstone that says i lived and died in oakville i never left, never left and i didn't know anything i didn't know anything i don't know anything i don't know i don't know anything i don't know anything and you don't know anything i don't know i don't know i don't know i don't know i don't know

i was the girl with the sun in her eyes you were the boy in the tragic disguise you were my fairy heroine i wasn't fairly scared of him who would kiss me with competence til i was drunk on confidence we were the girls oh so pleated and pressed where were the boys armed in lemons and jest? we found that charm disgusting too still there's no point not trusting you to let me make my own mistakes til there's no need for safety brakes to stop my head when you said philosophy is stupid i'd rather be cupid and giggle at the girls in red who aren't dead yet instead of giving thought to those not living in a world of clumsy twerps and miniskirts NOTHING HURTS you were the guy oh so charming and brave calmed down the fire and came out of your cave you were like fairy heroin i wasn't fairly scared of him who would kiss me with competence until i was drunk on confidence and lost my head when you said philosophy is stupid, etc.
