Last night I swallowed liquor and a lighter 
And this morning I threw up fire 
But it's nothing new 
I've been piecing it together and it's got something to do 

With every look thrown like a knife across a crowded room 
And every slow and quiet car ride I spent drinking in the backseat 
Every stupid melody to every stupid song, 
And every stupid word that everybody's hanging on 

What difference does this difference in age make? 
I know how it ends... she'll kill me quick. 
Call 911, I'm already dead but 
Someone should be caught and held responsible 
For this bloody mess 

Last night I fell asleep next to a liar 
And I woke up with a shiner 
And it's all that I remember from a night spent lying on my back with a view 
Of a stone white ceiling and the back of your head 

And this quiet dark bed feels like the middle of nowhere 
And we beat each other up just like we always do 
When I'm talking to myself I'd always rather be talking to you 

What difference does this difference in age make? 
I know how it ends... she'll kill me quick. 
Call 911, I'm already dead but 
Someone should be caught and held responsible 
For this bloody mess 

Call homicide, take the case to court 
'Cause her lips taste like a loaded gun 
I'm her number one chalk outline on the floor 

They hung her from the bridge on Monday 
The gathering turned to a mob out on the lawn 
They dropped her body in the river 
School and work returned to normal before long 
(before long... and no one will mention any of this again) 

Call 911, I'm already dead but 
Someone should be caught and held responsible 
For this bloody mess 

Call homicide, take the case to court 
Cause her lips taste like a loaded gun 
I'm her number one chalk outline on the floor
