Sleater Kinney – Youth Decay lyrics

Acid tooth
It's got nothing to do with you
But if you wanna watch me chew
My teeth are cutting you out

Well it must be in your head
It must be something that I did
Food just doesn't seem to work out

Am I rotting out?
Daddy says I got my mama's mouth
I'm all about
A forked tongue and a dirty house

Mom has said
Yes this happened to me long ago
But no one would believe me when I said:

Close my mouth
Was I born to accommodate
I'm so good at playing dead
Words just don't seem to come out
Should I eat something sweet instead
Wash away all those things we said
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
How many doctors will it take
Oooh Oooh befoe I disintegrate
