Verse 1

You made me cynical of you,

Not of love, and not of the world.

My heart's tied with the perfect glue,

You can't just tear apart this girl.

Chorus

My compassion doesn't come with a switch,

I can't turn it off even if I wanted to.

You can't just drain it away like a leech,

You're not worth it, no, I'd never give that to you.

Verse 2

I grew up reading comic books.

You're just a bad guy, you can't win.

You're falling apart now, just look.

You're tied up with a safety pin.

Chorus

My compassion doesn't come with a switch,

I can't turn it off even if I wanted to.

You can't just drain it away like a leech,

You're not worth it, no, I'd never give that to you.

Bridge

You may seem happier,

But you're hollow inside.

Take away the glitter,

You won't be satisfied.

Worshipping beauty that soothes the eyes,

You never had trouble spurning lies.

I'm not like you, I'm as clear as the skies.

Chorus

My compassion doesn't come with a switch,

I can't turn it off even if I wanted to.

You can't just drain it away like a leech,

You're not worth it, no, I'd never give that to you.

Chorus

My compassion doesn't come with a switch,

I can't turn it off even if I wanted to.

You can't just drain it away like a leech,

You're not worth it, no, I'd never give that to you.
