lyrics

Cruel,
my wires got switched.
Now I scratch
and itch.
I like to break rules

Cruel,
my signals
got crossed.
In the jungle, lost.
Came out, looking
like this.

There I go again,
acting tough again,
playing it cool again,
actin' a fool again.
When I saw you, then,
it been a long time, my friend.
I misheard what you said.
I overreacted.
It was cruel, how I acted.
That was the last time
I saw you.
Now you are dead.
Can't take back what I said.
Re-play it in my head
a thousand times.

I didn't know then, I guess
I was guarded, I didn't know
when, I was being cruel.

Did I pick it up in school?
Now I gotta unlearn
what a fire burns.
Seared to the psyche.
Like a slap or a spike.
Love and flames are alike
but not the same.
Cruel.

Ditch class, light up, like a star, drive around, rain or shine- play all day, grab my hand, kiss my lips, shake my hips, take a sip, then let's trip and skip skip skip!
