I guess it's terrible
But it don't feel so bad
I abide, and I may hold a key
To being gratefully glad
You smile in my face (we should run away now)
(On my way down) all the time, you won't take my place (I've been all the way round)
Here's my back for stabbin'
Did I make you?

Won't wait it up, I won't weigh you down (won't taint it up, taint it up)
I won't crave it up, I will stand down (won't taint it up)
I won't taint it up, I will stand down (won't taint it up, taint it up)
Will you pass me off?

I'll be, I'll be your cast-off
Be your discarded toy
I'll be, I'll be your cast-off
Your maybe, sometime choice
Self-loathing never felt so good
And so it should
I'll be your cast-off
I'll be your discarded toy
Be your rejection foil

Won't wait it up, I won't weigh you down (won't taint it up, taint it up)
I won't crave it up, I will stand down (won't taint it up)
I won't taint it up, I will stand down (won't taint it up, taint it up)
Will you pass me off?

I'll be, I'll be your cast-off
Be your discarded toy
I'll be, I'll be your cast-off
Your maybe, sometime choice
Be your rejection foil

I kinda ain't shit
But I embrace it
I can be okay
I'll take what I can get
And like it, and like it well

I'll be your cast-off
Be your discarded tone
Discarded toy
Discarded chew toy
Smile in my face
All the time, you won't take my place
Here's my back for stabbin'
