Looking at me through your window
Boy, you had your eye out for a little
"I'll cut you up and make you dinner
You've reached the end, you are the winner"

Rolling down your tinted window
Driving next to me real slow, he said
"Let me take you for a joyride
I've got some candy for you inside"

Running through the parking lot
He chased me and he wouldn't stop
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it
Grabbed my hair and pushed me down
Took the words right out my mouth
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it
Can anybody hear me when I'm hidden under ground
Can anybody hear me when I'm talking to myself?
Saying, "tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it"
He's saying, "tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it"

Little bit of poison in me
I can taste your skin in my teeth
"I love it when I hear you breathing
I hope to God you're never leaving"

Running through the parking lot
He chased me and he wouldn't stop
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it
Grabbed my hair and pushed me down
Took the words right out my mouth
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it
Can anybody hear me when I'm hidden under ground
Can anybody hear me when I'm talking to myself?
Saying, "tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it"
He's saying, "tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it"

Eenie meenie miny mo
Catch a lady by her toes
If she screams, don't let her go
Eenie meenie miny mo
Your mother said to pick the very best girl
And I am

Running through the parking lot
He chased me and he wouldn't stop
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it
Grabbed my hair and pushed me down
Took the words right out my mouth
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it
Running through the parking lot
He chased me and he wouldn't stop
Tag, you're it, tag, you're it
Grabbed my hand, pushed me down
Take the words right out my mouth
Tag, you're it, tag, tag, you're it

    Song MeaningThis song is extremely dark. It tells the story of a sexual abuse abductee (as seen in the first verses). Crybaby (The protagonist of this concept album) is walking when she is taken into an older mans car. The chorus is her trying to run away, him chasing her, and him taking her to the ground (seen in the lyrics 'Grabbed my hair and pushed me down, Took the words right out my mouth') The lyrics 'Can anybody hear me when I'm hidden under ground, Can anybody hear me when I'm talking to myself?' is in regard to her being in the mans car, losing hope, feeling like no one will hear her scream. The next verse is about her being chained up in his house. he has used her, and never wants her to escape (' "I love it when I hear you breathing, I hope to God you're never leaving" ') After another chorus, the next chorus is a play on nursery rhymes, 'Eenie meenie miny mo, Catch a lady by her toes, If she screams, don't let her go'. Its being applied to her story, and how she tried to scream, buy no one heard her. The last two lines of that verse I don't completely understand ('Your mother said to pick the very best girl, And I am') , but I think its referring to how she was always the golden child, and now all these terrible, unforeseeable things are happening to her. The song ends after just one more chorus. I think this song was pretty straight forward, and I really enjoy it.
