We came to an agreement in good health
That if no-one would take care of us
We'd be fine by ourselves
It was time to fight abuse
Of those who don't deserve our spit
Why is it that we crave the praise
From the people who least deserve it

If you gave us a flower
We could sit and we'd water it
But instead we watch you weave your webs
And you wait for us to fly into it
You act like you're a strong ant
We all act like we're weak
If only you'd quit trying to cripple
Our dancing feet

Bad kids, bad kids
Slip through your hands like liquid
Bad kids, bad kids
Vanish when you shut your eyelids
They'll vanish when you shut your eyelids

Thinking of it is painful
It's better to accept it all
Thinking of all the mothers and the daughters
And the fathers and the sons
Who are waiting for a call
That says I didn't mean it
I love you for who you are
Whether you made it in this sick industry or not
You'll always be our special star

He said, if I became a pretty flower
Would you sit and talk to me?
Oh my roots, my roots are getting old
And I'm getting, I'm getting, I'm getting, lonely, lonely
I'll play Superman, I'll make you feel safe
So why are you disappointed?
Everything that I did for you means nothing
Coz you've turned out to be wicked

Bad kids, bad kids
Vanish when you shut your eyelids
Bad kids, bad kids
Slip off your skin like liquid
Yeah, they slip off your skin like liquid

I'm a tangled ball of string
I'm a criminal, you're the victim
I am a cat and you are the mouse
And I am the milkmaid that killed all the cows

Am I the oil that stained the see?
Am I the storm that sunk the ship?
You are the horse on my cart
But it's you, but it's you, but it's you
It's not me, it's not me, it's not me
That broke your heart
That broke your heart
That broke your heart
That broke your heart
ah-ah-ah

    General Commenti feel like this song is trying and then not caring about being accepted by people who should accept you no matter what.
    like you do something or are something that isn't accepted by them and you're waiting futilely for them to call you and tell you it doesn't matter, that they accept you for who you are. However, then Marina realizes that this is stupid because she shouldn't need to grovel for someone's praise and love and acceptance when they should've accepted her from the get go. So she's saying "It's not me that broke your heart" implying that that person chose to make a big deal about it that would ruin their relationship.
