lyrics

She tacks her polaroids like a personal playbill
And fills her walls with life’s supporting cast
She takes her opioids and stares with eyes of hazel
What can you do about a girl like that
Out of her bills she folds a thousand paper swans from scattered reams
Out of the clouds she picks the future that she wants but she can’t seize

She says I’m picking roses I’ve been growing
And when they finish decomposing
I’ll start again and plant the seeds anew
She says I’m picking scabs that had been healing
And when they finish all their bleeding
I’ll keep the scars to remember the wounds

She never stops to talk to those with any interest
But shouts down every single deafened ear
Her music’s so ironic no she only listens
To Billboard toppers from the Reagan years
Out of her bills she folds a thousand paper swans from scattered reams
Out of the clouds she picks the future that she wants but she can’t seize

She says I’m picking roses I’ve been growing
And when they finish decomposing
I’ll start again and plant the seeds anew
She says I’m picking scabs that had been healing
And when they finish all their bleeding
I’ll keep the scars to remember the wounds

She couldn’t be more vapid if
She was a damn Kardashian
But she can hypnotize like it was true love
She’s so intoxicating and
They’re all infatuated can’t
discern when way too much is enough

She says I’m picking roses I’ve been growing
And when they finish decomposing
I’ll start again and plant the seeds anew
She says I’m picking scabs that had been healing
And when they finish all their bleeding
I’ll keep the scars to remember the wounds
