You don't know I am so,
you can not get close to me and I don't know who you are,
so just leave me alone.
I know you can't believe the anxiety you're causing me
and I know you can't believe your fake compassion I don't need.
Get away from me,
You're standing too close.
Keep your hands off of me.
Keep away from me,
Just leave me alone,
who said you could touch me anyway?
Don't try to rub my shoulders and don't try to hold my hand.
Don't try to give me a fucking hug.
You crawl on me as if I were you very best of friends.
I don't even know your name.

    General CommentI just think this song is about being kind of repulsed when you realize you've let someone you don't really know get really close to you, and then you just kind of like, jerk back, and tell them to stay away. I don't know, kind of a literal take on it.
