You don't know I am so,
you can not get close to me and I don't know who you are,
so just leave me alone.
I know you can't believe the anxiety you're causing me
and I know you can't believe your fake compassion I don't need.
Get away from me,
You're standing too close.
Keep your hands off of me.
Keep away from me,
Just leave me alone,
who said you could touch me anyway?
Don't try to rub my shoulders and don't try to hold my hand.
Don't try to give me a fucking hug.
You crawl on me as if I were you very best of friends.
I don't even know your name.

    General Commentwas Jade actually in the band at the time this song was released?
    I have this song on a Vinyl but I'm not sure which album it's from. Very Proud of Ya I think, and the guitarist is a guy called Mark.
    ...Maybe you just mean they're the fun characters at present though.

    Still, great song by AFI as ever.
