She stays up late to watch commercials
Shaking from the caffeine
Hiding in obviousness
If you can't relate, just a c c e l e r a t e
The accidental anti-trend
Can't tolerate the things they say about her
(this isn't about Good and Evil. It never has been.
It's always been about Good Intentions and Bad Taste.)
So she shuts up and washes her hands
"Take it like a man and
for goodness sakes, smile for once."
Fixated on ambiguity
She's in the wrong place at the wrong time
Because she's not as lost as she looks
And no certificate is going to get her out
Of this perfect (h)(e)(l)(l)
(this isn't your world)
Something has to change
Obsessions never stay the same for long
Otherwise they'd be acceptable
Cigarettes and cough syrup
To cancel each other out
Like posers and denial
"If you ask her she'd shake her head no"
"If you're not…, then you're…"
You won't believe what I saw on TV yesterday
Yes, she changed
Lost her voice eventually
My grandfather was left-handed,
but they hit him until he became right-handed
You only ever wear T-shirts…
You always slur my name when we talk.
"Why should we make accommodations for criminals?"
