I can't look straight at you, my dear
You will smell my fear, hold on to my slippery heart
Don't press too hard
You crush like a tidal wave

I know I had the words to say
Put your tail between your legs
Tell me what you really mean
You never say what you really mean

You masquerade like you're unique
Like you've got a lot to say, like there's something underneath
You masquerade like you're unique
Like's there's another you, like there's someone else to blame

Our chemicals reacting like darts
Teeth are shaking but it's not love
I'm electric and you're a plug
You aren't my friend, I'm not so friendly anymore

Put your tail between your legs
Tell me what you really mean
You never say what you really mean

You masquerade like you're unique
Like you've got a lot to say, like there's something underneath
You masquerade like you're unique
Like's there's another you, like there's someone else to blame

You want to rewrite our history
You want to the bend the truth
Looks like you wrote it too

You masquerade like you're unique
Like you've got a lot to say, like there's something underneath
You masquerade like you're unique
Like there's another you, like there's someone else to blame

    General CommentI think this song is pretty self explanatory. A guy is acting like someone he isn't to impress a girl and it's annoying her.
