Alright
Ok
Alright
Ok
Alright
Ok
Uh huh

How many times you cross the line
Run for days with eager eyes
Screaming smile left alone
These crazy things you do
In the forest of your mind
Haunted by the loss of time
Feet stuck frozen in the snow
These crazy things you do

Shame
Shame
Shame
Oh oh oh oh

Shame
Shame
Shame
Oh oh oh oh

Alright
Ok
Alright
Ok
Alright
Ok
Uh huh

Japanese from head to toe
Red to green, green to gold
Waiting on that buffalo
These crazy things you do

Shame
Shame
Shame
Oh oh oh oh

Shame
Shame
Shame
Oh oh oh oh

Run it over my skin like a cheap plastic knife
In your heart and your mind put me
Always aside
Do it over and again till it cuts to the bone
We can play by the rules or just leave
It alone

It's a shame
It's a shame
It's a shame
That your heart turned to stone
Now your hearts turned to stone

Run it over my skin like a cheap plastic knife
In your heart and your mind put me
Always aside
Do it over and again till it cuts to the bone
We can play by the rules or just leave
It alone

It's a shame
It's a shame
It's a shame

    Its about someone who is a backstabber, liar, fake, 2-faced or cheat. At the end where he is saying run it over my skin. It is showing that the problem keeps occurring over and over again. The part about the plastic knife is showing how much pain it causes him.
