Don't bother, I'm a danger to my health,
Don't bother, I'm a danger to,
Don't bother, I'm a danger,
Don't bother, I'm a danger to your health.

So I'm baking a cake, got this badass oven filled with goodies and treats
For all of my friends
Then Jonny comes and he poisons the food
Everyone is dead, now wasn't that rude

For now, those words are meaningless
For now, because I am

And we crack all our backs to relax and recap
The one time I looked like the goddamn circus
And we break into bits to believe we're legit
The one time I looked like the goddamn circus

Nobody will ever take the things in my fucked up brain,
No one can ever take the horrors in my life,
Take my life, because these words, they'll never speak,
Take my life, falling apart for you,
Take my life, ... my eyes will never speak, maybe- take my life, hate, my eyes will never speak
Take one ..., help me into you, maybe-- take one love, help me into you
Come away, go away.

Don't bother, I'm a danger to,
Don't bother, I'm a danger.

For now, those words are meaningless
For now, because I am

And we crack all our backs to relax and recap
The one time I looked like the goddamn circus
And we break into bits to believe we're legit
The one time I looked like the goddamn circus

I got a sense that this is overdone
but at least we're having fun
Am I right?!
I got a sense that this is overdone

    General CommentDon't bother, I'm a danger to my health,
    Don't bother, I'm a danger to,
    Don't bother, I'm a danger,
    Don't bother, I'm a danger to your health.

    ... the words are ...
    ... because I am.

    Nobody will ever take the things in my fucked up brain,
    No one can ever take the horrors in my life,
    Take my life, because these words, they'll never speak,
    Take my life, falling apart for you,
    Take my life, ... my eyes will never speak,
    Take one ..., help me into you,
    Come away, go away.

    Don't bother, I'm a danger to,
    Don't bother, I'm a danger.

    ... the words are ...
    ... because I am.

    Chorus sounds like gibberish to be honest.

    General CommentAfter "And we crack all our backs to relax and recap/The one time I looked like the goddamn circus," he doesn't repeat the first line; it sounds like he's saying "And we break into bits..." and I can't figure out the rest of it.

    General CommentI'm almost positive that the chorus is Johnny saying

    "For now, those words are meaningless"
    "For now, because I am"

    Lyric CorrectionConfirmed by Jon Mess on twitter

    "and we crack all our backs to relax and recap" 2nd time is "and we break into bits to believe were legit"
