Well you're caught in the headlights
Don't know which way to turn
And you're going down quickly with my silencer
I commandeer your heart and it's making you mad
It's dissolving your cool resolve though you haven't been had
Don't you wish you were tired of retiring in your mousetrap mind
Don't you wish you were making it through the moment
When you were my kind

Had a look at your soul
And it caught you off guard
And you can never take that back
And it's making it hard
Oh you wish you could hate me
But it's not in your nature
You'd rather debate me
And to me that's absurd
Don't you wish you were

Tired of conspiring with your mousetrap mind
Don't you wish you were making it through the moment
When you were my kind
Don't you wish you were drinking up all your doing

So you could crawl right back
Don't you wish you were
Shrinking heads in the sunset
You old sad sack

Bite down man, be strong
We're all impressed
The way you hold your breath so long
In time you'll turn blue
Won't be the only one who's really seeing you
Conspiring with your mousetrap mind
Don't you wish you were making it through the moment
When you were my kind

Don't you wish you were drinking up all your doing
So you could crawl right back

Don't you wish you were
Shrinking heads in the sunset
You old sad sack
Don't you wish you were
Making it through the moment?

    General CommentAn ex not being able to get over her maybe? They broke on bad terms, and she's came out better for it, and all she can do really is pity him and hold her head high

    I'm probably miles off, terrific song though
