Falling over backwards for you
Falling over everybody else

I put myself in that position
Every single time I have the chance
I know it's not my business to be digging up these things i shouldn't know

Twenty years of bad decisions haven't taught me much at all
Seperate events your making everyone pretend it's not your fault
All of this offence you're taking, doesn't really bother me at all

Twist my arm, that's the way, you think your gonna work this whole thing out
You know you own my body, but don't think that you control my mouth

Having every question answered is it gonna help at all?
Having every question answered is it gonna help at all?
Having Every question answered is it gonna help at all?
Having every question answered, does it help?
When you're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know... anything

Another textbook situation
Everything I think I knew I've read
What's the point in medication?
All it makes me wish that I were dead
It's pretty clear that you are me
It's written here on everysingle page
I'm smitten but not stupid
I can read it all over your face

Having every question answered is it gonna help at all?
Having every question answered is it gonna help at all?
Having every question answered is it gonna help at all?
Having every question answered, does it help?
When You're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know... anything
You're not supposed to know... anything
