lyrics

Your negativity is poisoning the room
Sometimes I can't believe there are people like you
Do you listen? Do you ever look to see that there are other people

And they're suffering too?
So I'm standing behind the counter cornered
Listening to you complain
Cause I look like a body
Well call the coroner and let her explain

You've got enough pity for two in your veins

I'm spread thin like icing on a sheet cake
Snip snip in pieces like a paper snowflake
You can't be everything at once
Can't be the hunter and the hunted

I'm a liability in this room
Sometimes I can't believe I've been here since June
Listening to the murmur of a sea
Of people looking at themselves when they look at me
So I'm standing behind the counter disappointed
Sipping on a cold light roast
Cause I look like a body but feel like a ghost

And I've got enough pity for two in my veins

I'm spread thin like icing on a sheet cake
Snip snip in pieces like a paper snowflake
You can't be everything at once
Can't be the hunter and the hunted
You cant have everything you want
Can't be the hunter and the hunted
