Thin-skinned kids with their fresh popped collars
And the white boys who think they’re black
Are throwing fits and a fistful of dollars
Just to try and get the inside track

And it was all plug-in heaters and faded wife beaters
Give me some sugar, and shots across the water

Drunk and sensationalized, I don’t know what to do
Bare legs on winter nights, and the morning split in two.

Ornamental girls and the two-second scramble
When the cameras are loaded and primed
Bit bottom lips and the too hot to handle
They are sweating under yellow lights

And there were bottles in paper and shouts to the neighbors
Linked arms and nose rings and Once More With Feeling

Drunk and sensationalized, I don’t know what to do
Bare legs on winter nights, and the morning split in two
Laugh just to break the ice, and the weapons that you used
Long swords and bitter knives, all your friends that you cut into.

You know he’s got eyes for you
Why didn’t you tell him you were mine
Why didn’t you tell him you were mine
Oh, I thought you were mine...

Drunk and sensationalized, I don’t know what to do
Bare legs on winter nights, and the morning split in two
Laugh just to break the ice, and the weapons that you used
Long swords and bitter knives, tell your friends that you’re feeling blue.
