Whiskey bottle head rush
Tight on ephedrine
Pulling at the curtains
like you'll never make the scene
Sister's in the bathroom
Playing games with fate
Everything is tasteless
& just piled up on your plate again

And you wonder why they're never looking at you
You wonder why you never leave the cutting room

You're standing at the courtyard
Killing cigarettes
Another boy, another joke
Another dirty dress
Peeling at the future
Trying to stay clean
Trying to be something
more than sex & nicotine again

& you wonder why...

But girl you are an angel
An angel with bad dreams
Don't tie yourself to desperation
Don't let them see you beat again
