What I want from you is empty your head
Well they say be true, don't stain your bed
Well we do what we need to be free
And it leans on me just like a rootless tree

What I want from us is empty our minds
Well we fake a fuss and fracture the times
We go blind when we've needed to see
And this leans on me just like a rootless

So **** you, **** you, **** you
And all we've been through
I said leave it, leave it, leave it
It's nothing to you
And if you hate me, hate me, hate me
