Leaf-like, I crunch me with you
Using you like a sharp tool
Even the men in my dreams
Are excusing themselves politely
And you know what?
Save it
I don't care

It's jealousy,
It's embarrassing
I should cut down on the drinking
On the number of foots in mouths
In fact, cut talking all together
Go deaf
And wear white
All white

Leaf-like, I check out
I cannot be here for this branch detaching
Taxed and running on E
There is no time for anything I love
I am

I forget I am a wonder
