lyrics

Well I, I want to talk about boundaries
I want to talk about how they always seem to be in my way
And I, I want to talk about India
I want to talk about how I thought no one could ruin my day

Well we've been talking for awhile and I think that we have finally had a breakthrough uh oh
But an hour's way too short
To unload, repair, rebuild and sort

Well I, I just don't think I can pay you
I just can't pay you enough for taking months to free my cares
How about I, how bout I pay you in compliments?
How bout I tell you that I'd string up his guitar with your precious hair?

Well we've been talking for awhile and I think that we have finally had a breakthrough uh oh
But an hour's way too short
To unload, repair, rebuild and sort

I think they're back again
I swear to god I swear they said to me oh oh
You're crazier than Gatsby
Lend me your ears and cut your fingers

You see, you see that's why I wear bandages
It passes time because they keep me up at night and my mind hurts
And I, and I even tried ear plugs.
I even went as far as burying my head deep in the dirt

And even though it's been awhile my whole neighbourhood keeps calling me a psycho uh oh
And the laughing I can take
It would just be nice to get a break

Why can't you hear them too?
I swear to god I sweat they said to me oh oh
You're crazier than Gatsby
Lend me your ears
I swear it's an emergency
We're in the clear
It's time to listen carefully
Just pick up those sheers and cut your fingers
