  • So I got edges that scratch
    And sometimes I don't got a filter
    But I'm so tired of eatin'
    All of my misspoken words
    I know my disposition gets confusing
    My disproportionate reactions fuse with my eager state
    That's why you wanna come out and play with me, yeah

    Why? Why?
    Why?

    Stooped down and out, you got me beggin' for thread
    To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
    Stupidly think you had it under control
    Strapped down to something that you don't understand
    Don't know what you were getting yourself into
    You should have known, secretly I think you knew

    I got some dirt on my shoes
    My words can come out as a pistol
    I'm no good at aimin'
    But I can aim it at you
    I know my actions, they may get confusin'
    But my unstable ways is my solution to even space
    That's why you wanna come out and play with me, yeah

    Stooped down and out, you got me beggin for thread
    To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
    Stupidly think you had it under control
    Strapped down to something that you don't understand
    Don't know what you were getting yourself into
    You should have known, secretly I think you knew
    (Secretly I think you knew)

    Hold it out, whoa
    Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better
    Hold it out, whoa
    Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better

    Hold it out, whoa
    Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better
    Hold it out, whoa
    Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better

    Stooped down and out, you got me beggin' for thread
    To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
    Stupidly think you had it under control
    Strapped down to something that you don't understand
    Don't know what you were getting yourself into
    You should have known, secretly I think you knew

  • Robert from Ottawa, OnBanks target demographic is probably not a 46yr old guy, but the lyrics of this song are really interesting, good word play, and so appropriate for some life experiences. I will explore more of her works, especially the stuff she has been involved in the writing.
