I bear my teeth, I bear my soul
I’m lashing out ‘cause you’re coming home
we’re better off without you here
we’re better off without you here
I just want to be alone

I pull my teeth, I pull my hair
I suffocate when you’re in my air
you’d think we’d have more to talk about
I am your seed, you are a drought
I fear I might explode

just give me one more reason to stay
‘cause I’m not the one who need to change
but only once the damage is done
you’ve realized that i’m the only one
and all the times we had
don’t make up for when things went bad
I told you baby, take it or leave it
because I’m leaving

when I was young, I used to walk
inside your shoes, waiting to grow up
but now that they fit, I’ll wear my own
I think I’d rather wear my own
I just want to be alone

are you afraid of my ideals,
the ones I’ve been forming all these years?
do you know what it’s like to be alone?
I never liked your shoes. I’ll wear my own
I fear I might explode
