Verse 1

I need a reality check.

I need to stop hovering over my ex.

I need some psychiatric help.

I need to lower my esteem of myself.

You're right, but reality hit me when

I figured I was played by your best friend.

And my ex and I resolved our old fights.

Some people don't run from the past, that's right.

Psychiatrists can't stitch up broken hearts,

That's why I had to tear up her old card.

I had been told I had low self esteem.

You don't know me at all, darling, it seems.

Chorus

I can understand your rage,

Nobody likes being caught red-handed.

Did I cause your pride damage?

Do you want a Pokémon band-aid?

You gulp down forest fires?

Aww, did mommy not make you breakfast?

You're such a damn good liar,

I'm so glad to leave you in the past.

Verse 2

I'm a petty flickering light.

I'm not good at understanding people right.

All you feel for me is pity.

Cause I'm every adjective that's not pretty.

You're right, I do flicker, I'm not divine,

Like the Devil of a man I called mine.

I read you and him so wrong all this time,

I'm too mad at myself to make a rhyme.

Don't waste your pity on a whore like me,

Mister Wonderful, Mister Calm as sea.

Before you point a finger, don't forget,

Four are pointed at you, dear Mister Hate.

Chorus

I can understand your rage,

Nobody likes being caught red-handed.

Did I cause your pride damage?

Do you want a Pokémon band-aid?

You gulp down forest fires?

Aww, did mommy not make you breakfast?

You're such a damn good liar,

I'm so glad to leave you in the past.

Bridge

You had your shot, now it's my turn,

To take a dig, so watch and learn.

Before you air your not so humble opinion

On other people like they're nothing but minions,

Take a good look at what you do, boy.

You shake your female friends like plastic toys.

You irritate half the class to death.

And you're well aware of this, I bet.

You're not worth a rivalry.

And this is all you'll get from me.

Chorus

I can understand your rage,

Nobody likes being caught red-handed.

Did I cause your pride damage?

Do you want a Pokémon band-aid?

You gulp down forest fires?

Aww, did mommy not make you breakfast?

You're such a damn good liar,

I'm so glad to leave you in the past.
