If we've got something going, tell me why is he here?
You leave me hanging by a thread when the lion is near.
I'm not about to drop the ball,
You clearly cannot say:

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open?
It's hard for me to think when your mouth is always moving
(It's so quiet now, just be quiet, just be quiet now)

You could have been all I wanted and that I need.
But you had to leave because it's so easy to fall in love with machines.
I'm not about to drop the ball,
You clearly cannot say:

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open?
It's hard for me to think when your mouth is always moving
Shut up, sit down, punch your way out
Just leave me alone.
You can't make me believe that you have changed at all.

Go away, no please stay.
Go away, no stay, stay away.
Go away, no please stay.
Go away, no stay, stay.

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open?
It's hard for me to think when your mouth is always moving
Shut up, sit down, punch your way out
Just leave me alone.
You can't make me believe that you have changed at all.
