I'm looking through my cuttings
I'm clipping through my scissors
Painting for an answer with a broken brush
I just wanted to show you what I can be
I just wanted to be me

Not everyone's a Palmer
I'm walking round in circles
Silking all my screens and breaking all your boards
Why can't I just be like you
and you
and you
and you
and you

Just go
With what you know
So just go

Show me the fire just burn me
I want you to burn me
I want you to burn
What are you hiding just try me
Is there more to this Oxford decor?

Every fractured lie
Every fabricated life
Every moment lost in time
Appeals to the eye
Tired of your politeness
You think you're looking priceless
Why is everyone so fucking nice all the time?

Just go
With what you know
Just go
With what you know
So just go
You're hidden by a mask
Of people who live for the guest list

Why can't I just be like you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
