Those that will judge / will say you're aloof / but you know the truth is a seed / you know what you need / is a conflagration / cause when I see your blood / and the bits of your broken tooth / it gives me the proof that I need / it's the proof that you bleed / and it's a revelation / it's a revelation / I thought you were a life-sized paper doll / propped up in the hardware store / propped up on the front lawn watching the parade / of the legionnaires with 2/4s / marching off to wars / I didn't know what you were made of / color of your blood what you're afraid of / are you made of calcium or are you carbon based / cause if you're made of calcium I'll have to take a taste / calcium is deadly, but tender to the tooth / but it's one sure-fire way to know if you're mx-missile proof / or if you're just aloof / and you were in the ground in late November / though the leaves and earth were damp / did you think they would remember / how you almost made state champ / and when you're running for the game against Alfonsus / and you fell up on the ground and chipped your tooth / that might really have surprised us / to learn that maybe you weren't really mx-missiles proof
