lyrics

On top! On top! (You’ll never know, you’ll never grow, you’ll never show it to me!)
On top! On top! (You’ll never be, you’ll never see, what it all means to me!)
Dancing on a frozen lake
Before those insect coppers came and took me away
To tell me about
The etiquette of having a moment
Laughing into eternity
Before those midnight men approached me
To wail on my face
And blindly demand
The money on the ground that was scattered around them
Feeling outcast at thanksgiving
Wondrin’ if I’m worth forgiving
For who I am
Inside of my head
When I know I’m beautiful but am made to feel red instead
In this world I feel surrounded
Authority figures keep me grounded but I
Break away! And give myself some time! And let
Everybody know how this idiot shines without
Cops or criminals or mental health
Breaking down this fortress that I’ve built for myself
But when they do break through
And I turn to stone
Then they all go home, then we all go home
And they’re all alone
You were an enemy
But I want you to breathe!
On top…
