A self-explanatory title.

lyrics

So it turns out all that you need is a little love, a lie, and a knife
And it turns out all I could do is waste waste waste my time
A pill will kill all of your aches
And take away the heavy shakes
So I hope that you don't mind
I can't be there this time

But if you answer the call
Or the cities all fall
Don't get far from your home
Don't get far from the phone
I wanna get it out of the way
And tell you I'm OK

So wait and see, wait and see
They'll crawl inside your ovaries
To send ahead the calvary
And plant a flag inside a seed
So burn it down! Burn it down!
And skip your way right out of town
I hope you lose the cops
Before the engine stops

(break up! break up! break up! wake up!)
But if you answer the call
Or the cities all fall
Don't get far from your home
Don't get far from the phone
I wanna get it out of the way
And tell you I'm OK

CUT OUT MY LUNGS
CUT OUT MY EYES
YOU OUGHT TO RUN
GIRL, YOU SHOULD HIDE

so it turns out you don't take kindly to lies, deception, and deceit
and it turns out that isn't what happened before
you grabbed your things to leave
A pill will kill all of your aches
And take away the heavy shakes
So I hope that you don't mind
I can't be there this time

(unintelligible)
