lyrics

we are the wise ones
with a killer intent we long for someone
to mellow our heads
you look for shortcuts
what do you think that this is?
mmmm
eh eh eh

why now do you ask me questions you know the answer to?
why have me looking crazy in public?
is it fun for you? are you just sadistic?

now you don’t care much
you’re the “coolest”
you wash the taste out to prove yourself remiss
i’m like a small child, living in ignorant bliss
mmmm
eh eh eh

why now do you ask me questions you know the answer to?
why have me looking crazy in public?
is it fun for you? are you just sadistic?

looking back now i feel so petty.. where was my mind?
but making excuses helps to cover up bruises
so i’m fine
yeah i couldn’t see it coming, i was younger then and so naive
so how could i have sensed the knife tucked in your sleeve?

we are the wise ones
with a killer intent we long for someone
to mellow our heads
you look for shortcuts
what do you think that this is?
mmmm
eh eh eh

why now do you ask me questions you know the answer to?
why have me looking crazy in public?
is it fun for you? are you just sadistic?
