Bad eyes and a dirty mouth
A distressed smile, it’s spitting vowels
30 seconds and I’ll have to try and break free

I’ve heard the complaints before
Never listened to, well I can’t hear anymore
I’m so bored, (feels like) my ears are going to bleed

I’ll never get away
I’ll never get away
I’ll never get away
And it’s getting too damn late
Too Late

Bad blood is raining down
Another day another irritant
Your negative drive can’t break me down, I won’t be your victim
Well I am still hanging on, I won’t be a victim, I won’t be your muse, I won’t be your pawn, I won’t be your princess, no no no

(The) interruptions are a daily curse
Too many questions, my head really hurts
No release and it’s taking it’s toll on me

The black cat is baring down
Wild stress levels, I’m sweating out loud
Your infection is killing me
