Half-dressed in the afternoon.
I dress in an empty room.
But the airs gonna fume.
So you start to shout again.
You've been thinking all your lines again.
You've been sneakin outside again.
There used to be something there.
When you used to care.
When you cared, o you can't but you must and your paid with one test to the gun.
You couldn't care less, you care too much.
You only spoke in an absolute.
Not exceptin a substitute.
Now you take what you can get.
Can't take what you might regret.
You never had no sympathy.
For anyone that disagreed.
You were brave enough to dare.
When you used to care.
When you cared, o you can't but you must and your paid with one test to the gun.
You couldnt care less, you care too much.
Did they speed back towards you?
All the lies were true to you.
You were so naive you stared.
On a count of just how much you cared.
Are you sick of hearing this?
Are you tired of feeling it?
Are you sick of constantly feeling the best?
When you, when you, when you cared.

    General CommentAmazing song, amazing band, slightly wrong lyrics
    Corrections:
    "But the airs gonna fume" should be "But the air’s gone out of it"
    "You've been thinking all your lines again" should be "You’ve been peaking out your blinds again"
    "o you can't but you must and your paid with one test to the gun" should be "Oh you cared much too much, and you paid with punches to the gut"
    "You were so naive you stared" should be "You assumed that you’d be spared"
    "Are you sick of constantly feeling the best?" should be "Are you sick of constantly being compared"

    annnd the line "Did they speed back towards you?", I know it's incorrect but I can't remember what it really is
