I don't remember
Did something in my past create a hole?
Don't use your gender.
To drive a stake right through my soul.


I live to function,
On my own is all I know.
No friends to mention,
No distraction, nowhere to go


Shallow, shallow,
Give it to me, give it to me
Scissors cutting out your anger
Shallow, shallow,
No good to me, not if you bleed
Bite your tongue ignore the splinter

This city drains me,
Maybe it's the smell of gasoline.

The Millions pain me,
It's easier to talk to my PC.


I live to function,
On my own is all I know.
No friends to mention,
No distraction, nowhere to go


Shallow, shallow,
Give it to me, give it to me
Scissors cutting out your anger
Shallow, shallow,
No good to me, not if you bleed
Bite your tongue ignore the splinter
