He left a card, a bar of soap and a scrubbing brush next to a note
That said, "Use these down to your bones"
And before I knew I had shiny skin and it felt easy being clean like him
I thought, "This one knows better than I do"

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
He tried to cut me, so I'd fit

And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could've gone?

And doesn't it feel peculiar
When everyone wants a little more?
So that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?

So the next one came with a bag of treats
She smelled like sugar
And spoke like the sea
She told me don't trust them, trust me

Then she pulled at my stitches one by one
Looked at my insides
Clicking her tongue
And said, "This will all have to come undone"

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
She tried to blunt me so I'd fit

And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could have gone?

And doesn't it feel peculiar
When everyone wants a little more?
So that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?

I think I realized just in time, I thought my old self was hard to find
You can bathe me in your finest wine but I'll never give you mine
'Cause I'm a little bit tired of fearing that I'll be the bad fruit nobody buys
Tell me, did you think we'd all dream the same?

And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could have gone?

And doesn't it feel peculiar
When everyone wants a little more?
So that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?
Oh, could you leave me with a scar?
Could you leave me, leave me with a scar?
