Your tongue told me truths that no one will believe
Of a rock the size of Texas with tricks up its sleeve
Oh, it's coming, somewhere, to Earth
Doesn't really matter where, 'cause it's still gonna hurt
So let's make the best of the time that we have

I can see that you are by the shortness of that skirt
And the way you walk the alleyways of this boulevard
And I'm right there by your side
Just soaking in the glare of a thousand staring eyes

But I'll savor each glance, I'll adore the attention
That you cleanse your ego by daily bathing in
I won't hold you back, no, I shall not be selfish
I am perfect being the impartial tag-along
I'll kill you with praise, with words of ambition
For, like the truest of loves, I'm destined to set you...

Free amongst these villagers, these sorry, common folk
They know nothing of the coming, of the calming words you spoke
Watch them scuttle over differences
The unimportant follies of the misunderstood
Their biased, drunken narratives

I'm so tired of being understood
I'm so tired of being understood
I'm so tired of being underneath the curl of a question mark

So call it like it is; no more bullshitting
Call it like it is; be oh-so-brutal with your honesty
Go call the pigs, go call the pigs--you can't prove a damn thing
Call it like it is, so you can help me find a way out

Find a way out of this, and I'll show you life like you've never seen it
Find a way out of this, and I promise you'll be gracious
For he who tells a lie will solemnly swear he's not scared to die
So laugh in his face, 'cause he's a fake
And when that day comes, you'll watch him shake, oh, he'll shake

So color me red like blood just for the hell of it
You won't hear a thing from me
Smile as we make love for what will be the last time before we leave
Color me red like blood just for the hell of it
You won't hear a thing from me
Smile as we make love for what will be the last time before we leave

(Promise you won't feel a thing, you won't feel a thing, won't feel a thing
Promise you won't feel a thing, you won't feel a thing)

'Cause you're only fighting fire with fire
You're only fighting fire with fire
'Cause you're only fighting fire with fire
Fuck this--let's just fight fire with fire!
