I know he's blood but you can still turn him away You don't owe him anything Do you go to the dungeon? To find out how to make peace With your days in the dungeon Writing a letter to you Didn't make me feel any more peaceful Than how I felt when we weren't speaking Because I didn't cop to what I did I can't love you 'Cause we're supposed to have professional boundaries I'd like you to be schooled and in awe As though you were kissed by god full on the lips I'm in the front row (I'm too tired to recount the unpleasantries) The front row with popcorn (One by one minute I want to banish you) (The next I want to be on a deserted island with you) I get to see you (along with my three favorite CDs) See you (ambivalent yet in your) Close up (bed we've yet to acknowledge what really happened) Slid into the ditch I have this overwhelming loss of ambition We said let's name thirty good reasons Why we shouldn't be together I started by saying things like "you smoke" "you live in new jersey" You started saying things like "you belong to the world" All of which could have been easily refuted But the conversation was hypothetical I am totally short of breath for you Why can't you shut your stuff off I'm in the front row (and I laughed until my lungs hurt) The front row with popcorn (I love how you bust my chops) (You don't always feel seen sometimes you feel erasable) I get to see you (unfortunately I cannot reciprocate) See you (in my current state) Close up (I think we should be careful of) (How much time we spend together) For a while while I'm speaking You know how much you hate to be interrupted Maybe spend some time alone Fill up your proverbial cup so That it doesn't always have to be about you I've been wanting your undivided attention I like the fact that you're nothing like me Are you not burdened by the lack of Perspective people have of your charmed life seemingly I'm in the front row (you never meant to be ungrateful) The front row with popcorn (or held up to be whipped) (Or wept for certainly not analyzed, prodded at more ways than one) I get to see you (apparently you've been misrepresented) See you (dealing with the concept of arrows being) Close up (slung towards your outrageous fortune) Hey, I'm not mad at you guardian I'm mad at myself for spending so much time With you and your Jekyll and Hydeness I'm glad I figuratively slapped you on the wrist You laughed a wicked laugh And said "come here let me clip your wings!" I know he's blood but you can still turn him away You don't owe him anything "Raise the roof," he yelled "Yeah, raise the roof," I yelled back Unfortunately you needed a health scare to reprioritize No thanks to the soap box Having me rile against them Won't make an ounce of difference I'm in the front row (oh, the things I've done for you) The front row with popcorn (many a stitch a friend) (A man's been left for you, oh, the books I've read for you) (The tongues I've bitten for you) I get to see you (many a new city for you) See you (many a risk taken for you) Close up (not a single regret)
