  • If you have an opinion
    Maybe you should shove it
    Or maybe you could scream it
    Might be best to keep it

    To yourself (to yourself)
    To yourself (to yourself)

    This is why I don't leave the house
    You say the coast is clear
    But you won't catch me out
    Oh, why? This is why

    Better have conviction
    'Cause we want crimes of passion
    Survival of the fittest
    You're either with us or you can keep it

    To yourself (to yourself)
    To yourself (to yourself)
    To yourself, yourself, yourself
    To yourself (to yourself)

    This is why I don't leave the house
    You say the coast is clear
    But you won't catch me out
    Oh, why? This is why

    This is why I don't leave the house
    You say the coast is clear
    But you won't catch me out
    Oh, why? This is why

    One step beyond your door
    It might as well have been a free fall
    One step beyond your door
    Falling down an endless hall
    One step beyond your door
    Might as well have been a free fall
    One step beyond your door
    And I'm floating like a cannonball

    This is why I don't leave the house
    You say the coast is clear
    But you won't catch me out
    Oh, why? This is why

    This is why I don't leave the house
    You say the coast is clear
    But oh no, you won't catch me out
    Oh, why? This is why Writer/s: Hayley Williams, Taylor York, Zac Farro
