• I've informed you to leave
    'Cause I can't afford to lose more sleep
    I get ill when I get tired
    So I'll try to rest if you'll stand guard

    [Chorus]
    Do do do do do do do do whoa
    Do do do do do do do

    I've informed you to leave
    'Cause I can't stand to hear you breathe
    I chew up and I choke down
    The scraps you choose to leave around

    [Chorus]

    Apparitions still won't leave me alone
    It's as if you never left
    How am I supposed to remember you
    When you won't let me forget?

    I've informed you to leave
    'Cause I can't afford to lose more sleep
    There's your shoes, and there's the door
    Please don't come here anymore
