Oh My God

Album: Who Are You Selling For (2016)
  • Oh my God, wish I was thin
    Wish I was vain on more human being
    I'm just like them
    Stuck in the dirt
    I am a victim of my own self-worth

    And now I wanna take it back
    I wanna take it back
    I wanna take it back
    To when I was so dumb and so innocent

    Oh my God, wish I was black
    Wish I had soul and my music attacked
    I am so white, shine like the sun
    Just like we've been counting down to the one

    And I wanna take it back
    I wanna take it back
    I wanna take it back
    To when I was so dumb and so innocent

    Oh my God, wish I could think
    Wish I could do something smarter than sing
    But I'm just a face
    Painted in mud
    Don't try for perfect it's never enough

    I'm just hanging with my head down
    I'm just hanging with my head down
    I'm just hanging with my head down
    I'm just hanging with my head down

    I wanna take it back
    I wanna take it back
    I wanna take it back
    To when I was so dumb and so innocent

    Oh my God, wish I was dead
    Wish I could turn off the noise in my head
    Oh my God, wish I could breathe
    Not fair I want some monstrous screams
    Oh my God, wish I was numb
    The weight on my back didn't feel like a ton
    Oh my God, wish I could pray
    Believe in the words your religions all say
    Oh my God, wish I could swim
    'Cause I'm gonna drown in depression again Writer/s: TAYLOR MOMSEN, BEN PHILLIPS
