Baby's born on a bathroom floor
Her mother prays that it'll never cry
But nothing's wrong you've got you prom dress on
When they ask you'll say "it isn't mind"

You know they're gonna know you lied
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helpin’ you out
Wash m' hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you out
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down

So keep the way you feel anonymous
And hide it all until the day you die
You're secret's safe, at least you thought it was
You can only cape it for a little while

And now you're terrified
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helpin’ you out
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helpin’ you out
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down

Baby's born on a bathroom floor
Her mother prays that it'll never cry
But nothing's wrong you've got you prom dress on
When they ask you'll say "it isn't mind"


And damn you for thinking we will never know
And damn you for thinking we would never mind
Only reason that you made it this far
You have never asked but you never tried

Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helpin’ you out
Wash m' hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you out
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helpin’ you
Wash m' hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
