I don't need a slap in the face,
I'm already at the bottom of the sea
Should have known this armor was heavy when the battle was declared by me

But you weren't listening too hard,
Under every word's a jaded heart
And you weren't listening too hard, now were you?

Can you pull your head out a moment
And try to find a second just to breathe?
I was trying to be a picture, a pillar of solidity you see?

But you weren't listening too hard,
Under every word's a jaded heart
Now give me your best and I'll take it, feel it, breathe it,
Then watch me throw it back to you

'Cause you weren't listening too hard,
No, under every word's a jaded heart
Now give me your best and I'll take it, feel it, breathe it,
And watch me throw it back to you
Back to you.
Back to you.
