It's everything that's bankrupt, everything that's flawed
It's talking out of turn again and wide of the mark
It's the part that threw you the point you always miss
It wants to see how you'll react and swears it's not a test

Still I never felt so off
No, I never let it get to me this much

It's everything that's bankrupt, everything that's flawed
It's talking out of turn again, finishing your thoughts
It's the part that threw you the point you always miss
It wants to see how you'll react, kid, it's famous for it

A turn of phrase and the conversation takes a different tone
If you knew where this was heading, you never did let on
Turn of phrase and the conversation takes your point of view
No matter what the old coat shows right through

You're more the loaded question and less the loaded gun
You're set to empty your affection in a crowd of hangers-on
It's cut from the same cloth
It shares most of your views
It's back on speaking terms
But it won't be there to catch you

A turn of phrase and the conversation takes a different tone
If you knew where this was heading, you never did let on
Turn of phrase and the conversation takes your point of view
No matter what the old coat shows right through
