I dont want to have to say this twice
Don't make me lift a finger
Even though I owe you one
I can think of a thousand things inside my head
I'd love to scream
But I just hold my tongue
You don't think that I can hear
But my ears are always burning
Don't make me say this twice

Don't you tell me that it's okay
That you never said a word when I wasn't looking
I'll tear this playhouse down
And laugh at how your drama has no place
You never should have crossed me

Now that I know that things will never ever be the same
Oh, wait, I forgot that this was never really all that great
There are better ways to waste my time
Stay right there
I'll be the one to walk away from
You don't think that I can hear
But my ears are always burning
Don't make me say this twice

Don't you tell me that it's okay
That you never said a word when I wasn't looking
I'll tear this playhouse down
And laugh at how your drama has no place
You never should have crossed me

You dug your grave
You can't get out
Should I top the dirt off to keep you down?
You dug your grave
You can't get out
Should I top the dirt off to keep you down?
You don't think that I can hear
You don't think that I can hear

    Haha, that's a funny line. The middle finger xD

    "I can think of a thousand things inside my head

    I think this is about someone who is two-faced, conniving and backstabs people when they're not around. She's caught the person bad-mouthing her and it's begun to irritate her. She's holding her tongue, not saying what she wants to the person because she doesn't want to sink down to their level.

    "Now that I know that things will never ever be the same
    Oh, wait, I forgot that this was never really all that great
    There are better ways to waste my time
    I'll be the one to walk away from"
    She's saying that they will never be how they used to be although it doesn't really make a difference to her because the 'friendship' they had once for was pretty insignificant to her anyway. Shes stopping herself from doing something drastic, or saying something childish because she feels like doing so will make her just as bad as the bad-mouther/gossiper.
