Animals will take these things about some pain that they once felt
There's no one that I disapprove of more or root for more than myself
I wanted to pretend that it was better, better, better on the phone
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone

So we talked about ourselves in hell
To forget the love we never felt
Are we all jokes, then what's the world?
It matters too
Don't try to stop us, don't try to stop us, don't try to stop us
Get out of the way

Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see
She sees her father in the poor man's eyes
It's crippling he says lullabys
