I grew up in the ocean red handed
I'm trapped beneath the surface the waves clashed

This is a pre-packaged nightmare

Make sure every feather's in its place

Soon we will resemble statues
Posing for all of the pigeons

We are so special in every way

Soon we will resemble statues

Make sure every feather's in its place

Nothing says respect me like high heels
A gentle touch of plastic accents
Thrown behind the back seat of her car
Mixed into the mountains of garbage

You talk enough for the both of us
I wish you'd shut up
When I grow up I'll be a computer
Or maybe a dog
I thought I saw her ghost in the hall
Now I'm wide awake
Forever stalked by the afterlife
A fraud's perfect soul
