about

The first half of the third verse was written by Andrew Heilman.

lyrics

We fuck on beds built from the bones of our parents.
We vomit their lessons right out of our necks.
We've so much to say, and tongues with which to say it,
But it's hard to be candid with a mouthful of flesh.

Do I act like an asshole because I'm treated like an asshole,
Or am I treated like an asshole because I am one?
It's circular logic, it's chicken-and-egg shit.
Stay the fuck up outta my way if it looks like I'm having fun.

Her eyes were like glass, and her laugh was like plaster,
But I knew her bones could be polished like wood.
Her hips were like raindrops, her heart was an eggshell,
And I tried to fill it the best that I could.

Do I act like an asshole because I'm treated like an asshole,
Or am I treated like an asshole because I am one?
These decisions that I make, they all glow in the moonlight,
But I can't find no mercy in the scrutiny of the sun.

The phone keeps a-ringin', and the tickets keep a-comin',
And the boys are all drinkin', so you know that they're mad.
And that goddamned sun, it won't stop a-risin',
So we'll just keep on drinkin' 'til it don't seem so bad.

Do I act like an asshole because I'm treated like an asshole,
Or am I treated like an asshole because I am one?
It's circular logic, it's chicken-and-egg shit.
Stay the fuck up outta my way if it looks like I'm having fun.

Do I act like an asshole because I'm treated like an asshole,
Or am I treated like an asshole because I am one?
These decisions that I make, they all glow in the moonlight,
But I can't find no mercy in the scrutiny of the sun.
