lyrics

He said girls don’t mean what they say
he said call me anytime
but has not picked up in 3 days
And I’d like to think I can take a hint
So I’ll take your silence for what it is

She asks if I’ve done this before
I said a few times, She says
i could use a couple more
That my nervous hands read inexperience
That she’ll show me love with an iron fist

So sure
I’ve got something to prove but
I don’t know if it’s to me or you
Validate the boxes
that they create around us
I swear it’s a cage

I’ll never be man enough for you
To see me the way that I do
and I’ve been chasing
the end of some rainbow
Until I stopped and asked if it was real

And I’ll never see myself as more than a boy
And you’ll call me your girl
And I’ll bite my tongue and swallow it whole
You said I should be used to being uncomfortable

He said I have no room to complain
If I just tried a little harder
to look and act that way
And in the morning when I put on my face
I’m deciding which role I’m gonna play

I’ll cut off my arms and legs
to fit inside of boxes
that were never made for me
What is the price to assimilate
So I can sit inside a coffin
until I rot away

I will tear myself apart
with these two hands
I’m just trying
to find my place
between opposing ends
between two opposing ends
