"Twisted Nerve" as written by and Jemima Pearl Abegg John Eatherly....
You are a chainsaw through my heart
Ripping right through me from the start
You make me go crazy all night long
I need you so bad, I know it's gotta be wrong

You get on my nerves, you make me so mad
It's times like these that I just can't stand
You're so far away and I can't hurt you now
I guess I'll just use myself like I know how

Rip out my hair
Wish that it's yours
Cut my own skin
Pretend that it's yours
Call you up in tears

Then you'll take back all the things that you said
And we can be ourselves once again

Goddamn, how you make me scream and shout
I don't wanna run around my room and pout
But you make me do it and I can't hardly stand it
You've got my heart and you know you've always had it

But now you're so far away
And there's no way to make you pay
So I'll go around my room and break anything I want
And in my head imagine breaking your heart

Rip out my hair
Wish that it's yours
Cut my own skin
Pretend that it's yours
Call you up in tears

You're such a tease, you're such a jerk
Why do I waste my time?
I'll make you take back all the things that you said
I'll make you take back all the things that you said

You're such a tease, you're such a jerk
Why do I waste my time?
I'll make you take back all the things that you said
I'll make you take back all the things that you said

You're such a tease, you're such a jerk
Why do I waste my time?
I'll make you take back all the things that you said
I'll make you take back all the things that you said

You're such a tease, you're such a jerk
Why do I waste my time?
I'll make you take back all the things that you said
I'll make you take back all the things that you said
And we can be ourselves once again

You are a chainsaw through my heart
Ripping right through me from the start
You make me go crazy all night long
I need you so bad, I know it's gotta be wrong

You get on my nerves, you make me so mad
It's times like these that I just can't stand
You're so far away and I can't hurt you now
I guess I'll just use myself like I know how

    General Commentyeah but you have to admit that its definitley a good tune in itself. makes you get up and dance. that line is kindof tacky, but the rest of the lyrics really go to heart with me so im in love.

    General Commentit annoys me that they rhymed "pout" with "shout". that's just such a predictable, unoriginal rhyme... not their best.

    General Commentholy balls. i actually really don't get when people say they don't like get awkward... how could you not !? :S the songs are actually about SOMETHING.
    personally though, i prefer listening to get awkward. half the songs get you in a kick ass mood, and the other half is reserved for when you're pissed, or hating your friends or the people where you live.
