I said I wanna come over
You said ok just come over
Your friends are all on the couch
Your friends said let's walk around
I'll pretend your friends are my friends
And kinda try not to offend them
But I won't let you see anything real
Let you know
There's limits to

I stopped talking an hour ago
I stopped talking an hour ago
I stopped talking an hour ago
I stopped talking an hour ago

It's a particular point of view
This group's dynamic caters to
It's a predictable point of view
I think you know when it caters to you

(And if you do know don't act like you don't
cause it's really annoying
and if you don't know, well
let's just say you're a lot, lot stupider than I thought.)

I'll pretend your friends are my friends
But I don't wanna hear you defend them
In fact that kind of insults me
And I kinda don't really wanna be here right

I stopped talking an hour ago
I stopped talking an hour ago
I stopped talking an hour ago
I stopped talking an hour ago

Ok your whole thing put me in negative space for way too fucking long
The only thing I managed to say during that time was
I hate danger
What I really should have said was
You're so not dangerous
You're so not what you say you are at all

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs.

    To me, it reminds me of sitting in a room of a bunch of privileged straight white boys, which I've done voluntarily too much lately for a certain privileged straight white boy. They don't get me or my experiences, their entire culture is oblivious to my EXISTENCE and the issues I face. I try and speak up about the things they say but it becomes too much, I'm singled out and they use their power to silence me. I stopped talking an hour ago...

    General CommentThis song is about hanging out with some guys and starting to feel like you're in a dangerous situation. It's about the possibility of rape, being afraid, and being mad at your boyfriend because he's just going along with it, and pretends not to know.

    General CommentI like the way she sings "I stopped talking an hour ago." It seems to perfectly capture that moment where one random thought starts repeating itself over and over in your head. I can feel myself in a corner of the room thinking that when she sings that line.

    General CommentAlso, I don't think about it's a fear of rape or being physically harmed, but frustration at being in a silencing environment when those who should be standing up for you don't.

    General Commentyr all kinda right. but it can be anyone. like someone yr friends with and the rest of their friends 'cater to that particular point of view", and they only really want you when you have something to offer them. when they want something from you.
    and they put on this front, to be something they're not.
    and this friend is frustrated cuz they see it & they want more, bettter. for them and their friend. & don't bother trying to defend them, she'll just roll her eyes at you.
