Sometimes, I think it would be nice to peel off my skin in strips like string cheese.
Sometimes, I think it would be cool to be frozen solid like a Popsicle.
Growing up a good girl with a bad brain is strange.
Being known as a sweet girl, known to bubble and grin
But eternally fearing the inevitable, within.
Sometimes, I think of what it would be like to fall in a black hole and be shredded up like a legal document.
Sometimes, I think of what it would be like to put my bare hand in a frying pan.
My eyes are as big as the moon and I could find something happy in every star
but every star is a problem and every star is as big as the moon
Sometimes don't you find yourself pondering how it would feel to pull out each hair from your body, one by one?
Sometimes, don't you just bite down on your cheek, just to feel real?
Burned my tongue on a hot slice of pizza
Burned my tongue from lying without reason
Burned my tongue because I didn't think
Scalding sorry's won't make it satisfactory
You can't put band aids on a burned tongue
Good girls still have bad things in their brains
Burned tongues are like bad brains.
There is no band aids for us.
I'm gonna get bored sometimes.
I'm gonna get tired early sometimes,
and sometimes I won't fall asleep at all.
Sometimes I'm gonna lie awake wishing you'd call
I'm gonna make up problems
and sometimes I'm gonna make up excuses.
Excuses for why I don't wanna play today
Excuses for not wanting to leave the house.
Excuses, like no I don't feel good, today.
When was the last time I did?
I know I did just the other day
Why does it feel so far away?
I smile at you
I dress like a cartoon character
I laugh easily
I'll be nice
