You've got this new head filled up with smoke
And I've got my veins all tangled close
To the jukebox bars you frequent
The safest place to hide
A long night spent with your most obvious weakness
You start shaking at the thought
You are everything I want
'Cause you are everything I'm not

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (Too close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna bring you down so badly
(Well I trip over everything you say)
I just wanna break you down so badly
(In the worst way)

My inarticulate store bought
Hangover hobby kit it talks,
It says, "You, oh, you are so cool."
Scissor shaped across the bed, you are red, violent red."
You hollow out my hungry eyes
You hollow out my hungry eyes

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (Too close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna bring you down so badly
(Well I trip over everything you say)
I just wanna break you down so badly
(In the worst way)

I just wanna bring you down so badly
(Well I trip over everything you say)
I just wanna bring you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
I'll make damn sure that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far...

I just wanna bring you down so badly
(Well I trip over everything you say)
I just wanna bring you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure
I just wanna bring you down so badly
I just wanna bring you down so badly (damn sure)
In the worst way (worst way)
