Countless suicide attempts
And all his money was spent
Chewing gum and cigarettes
To keep his knees from shaking

He never thought before you spoke
Took back everything you meant
And from an early age
You learned to inhale and forget

And who are you?
And who are we?
Photographs and diaries
Spend your life working hard
Spend your life studying
And then you die
And then you die
And then we read all your books
And then you die
And then you die
And then we criticize your work

You figured it out
You figured me out so good
I know you want it
They said you would

You're getting to close
And it's all too much
Afraid of
The human touch

Give the kids all their candy
Whatever makes them happy
Give me seeds and I'll plant trees
Learn from your mistakes
My parents never learned from me

And blasphemy on the walls
Of the bathroom you wrote
God is gay and no one cares,
Even if you left a note
Your suicide will go unheard
Maybe 'cos you never spoke
You were a wallflower
You were my only hope

Your songs never left your room
You never showed your poetry
Don't you die, don't you die
Don't you dare die on me

You figured it you
You figured me out so good
I know you want it,
They said you would

We're getting too close,
And it's all too much
Afraid of
The human touch

Give the kids all their chrystal
Oh god no
Make them hate
Give them pistols
Fight a war but don't ask why
And oh my boy you're too young to die

And what do you know
About where we go
After all of this
Spent my life wondering
But still don't know
Why we have to exist
To be anything at all
Is beautiful I guess
But I still don't know if I like it

You unbuttoned your dress
And you gave me a kiss
I'm gonna learn to forget
You gotta learn to forget

You figured it out
You figured me out so good
I know you want it
They said you would

You're getting too close
And it's all too much
Afraid of
The human touch
