lyrics

Tell me what's wrong with the way that I am
Don't fit in your boxes you don't understand?
Suspended in “almost” in “maybe” in “um”
Fill me with self doubt before I've begin

Talk to me talk to me tell me the truth
You reject me 'cause I'm better than you
Well look in the mirror and see the decay
I'll eat you for breakfast oh one of these days

'Cause there's no way you know better
I'll piss on your letter
And it will make me stronger
And you will regret it
But if you ever want me
If you ever want me
I'll be waiting here to tell you...
no! NO!

Tell me what's wrong with the way that I think
Am I like a plug that don't fit in your sink?
I filter your bull shit – it falls down the drown
But waiting for answers is like catching rain

'Cause there's no way you know better
I'll piss on your letter
And it will make me stronger
And you will regret it
But if you ever want me
If you ever want me
I'll be waiting here to tell you...
no! NO!

Everyone everyone has a beat that they drum
Everyone everyone has a song that is sung
Everyone everyone has a moment in time
This is mine, this is mine
This is mine, this is mine

'Cause there's no way you know better
I'll piss on your letter
And it will make me stronger
And you will regret it
There's no way you know better
I'll piss on your letter
And it will make me stronger
And you will regret it
But if you ever want me
If you ever want me
I'll be waiting here to tell you...
no! NO!
