  • Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch

    I resent you for being raised right
    I resent you for being tall
    I resent you for never getting in any opposition at all
    I resent you for having each other
    I resent you for being so short
    I resent you presenting your life
    Like a fucking propaganda brochure
    And I see that you keep trying to beat me
    And I love to get up in your face
    But I know that if I hate you for hating me
    I will have entered the endless rage

    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch

    I resent you for being raised right
    I resent you for being tall
    I resent you for never getting any opposition at all
    I resent you for having each other
    I resent you for being so sure
    I resent you presenting your life
    Like a fucking propaganda brochure
    And I see that you keep trying to beat me
    And I love to get up in your face
    But I know if I hate you for hating me
    I will have entered the endless race

    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch

    I'm sorry

    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch
    Evil is a relay sport
    When the one who's burnt
    Turns to pass the torch

    I used to go to the Ferris wheel every morning
    Just to throw my anger out the door Writer/s: Fiona Apple Maggart
