I know why when I look in your eyes
I see something ugly
I know why when I look in your eyes
All I see is me
I know why when I look in your eyes
I see something ugly
It's alright
Baby, don't cry
I'm soaking up formaldehyde

I can't stand how I feel inside
I'd rather feel nothing
I can't stand how I feel inside
And this life's not for me
I can't stand how I feel inside
I'm right about nothing
It's alright
Baby, don't cry
I'm soaking up formaldehyde
And at our next meeting you'll be
Six feet above me

I know why I'm dead inside
My baby don't love me
I know why I want to die
Something's missing from me
Don't know why I tossed it aside
Maybe just to spite me
Denial in a smile
I'm thinking all the while
Shallow graves to the lovers
Who never really loved me
Go!

I know why when I look in your eyes
I see something ugly
I know why when I look in your eyes
It's not you, it's me
I know why when I look in your eyes
I see something ugly
It's alright
Baby, don't cry
I'm choking on formaldehyde

I can't stand how I feel inside
I'd rather feel nothing
I can't stand how I feel inside
I'm sick of you and me
I can't stand how I feel inside
I'm right about nothing
It's alright
Baby, don't cry
I'll kill to the rhythm of the song I'll write
When I'm down
Undergound
And you're six feet above me

    General CommentEveryone loves this song.
    This awesome kid named Dunlee once told me it sounded like a robot song. I dunno what the fuck that means, but I like it.
    It's about a bitch ditchin' me, and playing me for a fool.
    It's all good though, cause this song rocks.

    General CommentI think the inspiration here was time in jail, as well as "Crawl" by Alkaline Trio.
