lyrics

You maintain the stain
I’ll let go of everything
You made a mess
working on a gag reflex

Finding excuses
Not to do this
Full of shit it sure fools me

You won't look me in the eye
You're afraid I see you
You can't hide
Your things cast a light

You maintain the stain
I let go of everything
You made a mess
working on a gag reflex

You forgetful thing
You get so mean
Changing my memories
Hold this over me

You won't look me in the eye
You're afraid I see you
You can't hide
Your things cast a light
Do you like this it's new
I see through you
I see right through
I see all of it
The light on your face

When you find the wound
It's deep in you
When you find the source
what can you do
I have to look up to you
I love to look down on you
I blame all the stains on you
You made a mess
It's what you do
