Originally appeared on the Mr. Boddy EP.

lyrics

i swear, i swear i knew it all along
went upstairs when i knew that you had study hall
and i cared if you talked to the old man in the sky
so scared you would let me touch your body
and i wouldnt say no
no, i wouldnt say no.

and i was so full of shit
cross my fingers, clench my fist
picture myself inside her kiss
and fall asleep, you hypocrite.

lipstick, you looked worse than you ever did
so i said i had climbed so far over it
and i looked for an easier knot to untie
someone who would let me touch their body
and i wouldnt say no
no, i wouldnt say no.

and i was so full of shit
cross my fingers, clench my fist
picture myself inside her kiss
and fall asleep, you hypocrite.

i was the strangest of thieves
pick all the locks and then leave
to go home and fantasize bout the things
that i couldve had if i opened up that door
but that's not how i want it anymore

and i was so full of shit
cross my fingers, clench my fist
picture myself inside her kiss
and fall asleep, you hypocrite.
