Let's Eat Grandma – Donnie Darko lyrics
[Verse 1]
I saw you in the yellow pages
I just looked at it to pass the time
In my self-alienating phases I play a rough game to win, to win
Of being things that I can't be
And honestly some people are so committed to honesty
But I don't know if these can face that
'Cause I've wanted to take back what I've said before
But I, I couldn't find my receipt

[Verse 2]
I've got bed bug bites up my spine
And my left hand side cooled them down
In the freezer aisle, oh, so sweet, so the night comes by
Now I'm lying flat on the bathroom tiles
Hear the buzz of the hornet fly
Trapped inside of my orchid mind
I'm going batshit crazy
It's not real life, I can't be dialing 999
Peel my skin like a clementine
Just reminds me of old [?]
But I focus right on the bright, blue light
And hold on tight, hold on tight

[Interlude]
Donnie Darko's at my windscreens
[?], stop the car, stop the car, please
But I can't
And I can't

[Refrain]
'Cause the beatings just get harder and we'll never grow them out
'Cause the hand that does the dealings is the one that feeds your mouth
And the beatings just get harder and we'll never grow them out
'Cause the hand that does the dealings is the one that feeds your mouth
And I won't, and I won't

[Verse 1]
I saw you in the yellow pages
I just looked at it to pass the time
In my self-alienating phases I play a rough game to win, to win
Of beatings that I can't beat
And honestly some people are so committed to honesty
But I don't know if these can face that
'Cause I've wanted to take back what I've said before
But I, I couldn't find my receipt

[Outro]
I saw you in the yellow pages
I just looked at it to pass the time
'Cause I've wanted to take back what I've said before
But I can't, and I can't
And I know, and I know
