Don't make me read your mind
You should know me better than that
It takes me too much time
You should know me better than that
You're not that much like me
You should know me better than that
We have different enemies
You should know me better than that
I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should leave it alone but you're not right

Can't you write it on a wall
You should know me better than that
There's no room to write it all
You should know me better than that
Can you turn the TV down
You should know me better than that
There's too much crying in the sound
I should know you better than that
I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should leave it alone but you're not right

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that
Tell yourself your it's all you know
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind
