Of a face full of words you'd think a few would be right (right)
And with a few tips of courage, you'd think my lip's less tight (right)
Shattered passenger window beside itself on the floor
They can take my stereo but you can't take me for a kid anymore

I'm going back to your house
Back from the dead
Why can't I forget what Katie said?
You've got standards girl
What the hell are you doing with me?

STD pay phone hanging off my face
The roomie has got me on hold
And damn why am I such a disgrace?
With a fist full of change and absolutely no sense
What little I've learned about love is at my pride's expense

I'm going back to your house
Back from the dead
Why can't I forget what Katie said?
You've got standards girl
What the hell are you doing with me?

I'm going back to your house
Back from the dead
Why can't I forget what Katie said?
You've got standards girl
What the hell are you doing with me?

You always know the latest place to be
With your waved in friends and your waved out fees
Your neon light's blinking vacancy, baby baby
You've always been the latest thing to be
With your guest list and their listless pleas
Here here, three cheers for your apathy

I'm back at your house
Back from the dead
Why can't I forget what Katie said?
You've got standards girl
What the hell are you doing with me?

I'm going back to your house
Back from the dead
Maybe I'll forget what Katie said
You've got standards girl
What the hell are you doing with me?
Yeah what the hell are you doing with me?
What's a decent girl doing with me?

    Lyric CorrectionThis song reminds me a lot of a girl I know (ironicaly, she is named Katie). She's what you would call popular, and she is kind of ditzy. These lines in preticular remind me of her:

    You always know the latest place to be
    With your waved in friends and your waved out fees
    Your neon light's blinking vacancy, baby baby
    You've always been the latest thing to be
    With your guest list and their listless pleas
    Here here, three cheers for your apathy

    Simply because she is fairly apathetic, and especialy this:

    Your neon light's blinking vacancy, baby baby

    makes me think of her. To be honest though, I wouldn't mind eventualy dating her, but I know I would stand no chance, cause me and her are from different cliques, and she would never come down to my level.

    You've got standards girl
    What the hell are you doing with me?

    Something like that...As my my lyrical interpretation? Yeah pretty much what I have already said.

    General Commenti think that "you've got standards girl, what the hell are you doing with me?" sounds better than "you're a cool girl". i think the new version is more well-written personally. i love e. von dahl but decomposer as a whole is more well-written, and they grew a lot, and their proud of decomposer obviously.


    aaaaand i love this song

    General CommentI like the new version better. I don't know why, I just think it sounds more .. complete.
