thats not a hand its a claw, and this is not a song its an exorcism of numbness, this is not my bedroom anymore, its a prison camp that i've been stuck in
this isnt skin, its a scramble suit with a thousand me's rotating,
thats not your mouth, its a boredom generator powered by irritation,
we arent a couple, we're isolationists who tried to use the buddy system
and that wasnt sex, it was a competition for power that im clearly winning
but thats not victory, matter fact i think im better off forfeiting,
you go for de gold girl, im about to bounce out deadwoods hills for cleaner living
and i really do...

hope it all works out like you want it to,
i hope it all works out like you want.

this isnt brooklyn, its a colony of wayward bees without a queen
and we arent people, more like sims controlled by childish deities,
but see we're alive now, and thats not time we're wasting nah this is life
and you're so pretty, like the gleam off that blade when you slipped my ribs the shivy,
this aint a breakup, i like to think of it as a stay of execution,
and thats not the air im clearing, its the wispy trails of our cumulus pollution,
and thats not despair you're feeling, its the petulant reaction of a wounded child
and thats not the door im looking at, its an escape hatch to this zeppelin we're inside
and i really do...

hope it all works out like you want it to,
i hope it all works out like you want.

you're not a woman you're a piranha with cutlery for dentured up smile
and i'm not a man, i'm an incomplete punchline to a joke i dont understand,
that's not your diary, it's a cookbook and i'm you're favorite chapter when you're bored
and thats not a love letter, its a recipe for the same slop you've served before
this aint an insult, its the clearest truth i've ever had the misery to speak but these arent words, these are the terms of my surrender and defeat
but i'm not sorry, beyond the sorry nature of existing with no plans,
please dont touch me. just wave goodbye with that claw thats not a hand.
did i mention that i...

hope it all works out like you want it to,
i hope it all works out like you want.
