I
Said what you wanted to hear
And what I
Wanted to say
So, I
Will take it back
Are all of the dishes in tact?
Let them be
Broken
Broken
It's easy to be
Easy and free
When it doesn't mean anything
You remain
Selfless, cold
And composed

You've done me no
Favor to call and be nice
Telling me I
Can take anything
I like
You don't owe me to be so polite
You've done no wrong
And you've done no wrong
Get out of my sight

It's easy to be
Easy and free
When it doesn't mean anything
To remain
Selfless, cold
And composed

Come on baby,
Now throw me a right to the chin
Don't just stare like you never cared
I know you did
But you just smile
Like a bank teller
Blankly telling me:
"have a nice life"

Come on baby,
Now throw me a right to the chin
Just one sign that could show me
That you give a shit
But you just smile, politely
And I grow weaker and I

Said what you wanted to hear
And what I
Wanted to say
So, I
Will take it back

It's easy to be
Easy and free
When it doesn't mean anything
And it doesn't mean anything
You can take anything
You can take anything

You're so
Selfless, cold
So selfless, cold
So selfless, cold
And composed

(Cool.)
