Teenage Butchers (new song by me)

TEENAGE BUTCHERS
_______________________________

It was love at first sight
Oh how so shallow
Or laugh at first sight
And to the gallows
So slowly devouring these pills all night
Another every hour, time to go swallow

So now, just how far would you go
As my chemically romantic Romeo
How so tragic, you went so far from you
But who would stand up and say I knew
Well now she’s gone an all along
We were all so wrong, so wrong
So far from saving you
So far from the truth

There is something I’m seeing in my evil eye
You’re just not enough, better luck next time
Truth is your ruthless little high school drama auditions
Is enough, ignore the drool on my chin
And I’m sorry but I just can’t love a lie
Even if you are the “miss I’m the most beautiful illusion”
But the mask you are in is made out of your skin
I can’t bear to be with you if I can’t see your eyes

Will you just get the hell away, go climb a tree
Tell me who’d love you any day as much as me

You poor thing you’re choking, choking, just choked up
The pathetic joke might’ve been rough, truthfully
Are you laughing, is that beer or blood filling your cup
I promise you, we’ve had enough of this comedy

They say since sharing is caring
But if it is sight then it is staring
And If you’re weak then it’s pretty creepy
But if you’re beefy meat then it’s pleasing

Hey there, I have not forgotten about you
Okay, maybe just a little, but only just a little
But I really did take to heart what you said
An honestly, I can’t wait to see if you grew
And tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock
Oh never mind I just found out you’re dead

I heard he was going to slaughter me
So it was just self-protection I swear
After all he was always staring at me
What?! That’s absurd I wasn’t scared

You poor thing you’re choking, choking, just choked up
The pathetic joke might’ve been rough, truthfully
Are you laughing, is that beer or blood filling your cup
I promise you, we’ve had enough of this comedy

This honestly is no world for a loser
If a loving teen girl’s athletic abuser
Means more then a little enamored shy kid
Who’d romantically kill, or even die for her

Go to bed darling, you will need your sleep for school
To deal with the “will you be my valentine” April fools

I do say, hip-hip hooray for a homicidal holiday
Well, are you happy for this high school parade
Can you tell through the smiles, it’s hell inside our little brains
Or feel the denial pulsing violently through our bleeding veins

Split the school in half and say
This side gets to laugh an play
While the other kids may cut
And these lil children will cry
It means but nothing
In her all-seeing eyes

Please just help me survive
And I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe for the both of us

Do you not learn every day in class to raise your hand
To not yell, disrespect them, or shred your exam in half
“Teacher this is insane, okay, I’m not stupid, goddamn”
You can almost hear your absent psychiatrist’s laugh

So we get pumped up on Riddlin
Overdose on the stuff you need most
Parents are suppliers and you’re a ghost
We are no longer just those little children

But still nobody can hear me shout
I’ve had my vocal cords ripped out
Because I wanna scream about my bad luck
But I really don’t want to be told to shut up

Oh something, something, suicide
Umm, ‘cause it’s just extremely bad
Their last resort reasons are all lies
I find it all quite honestly sad

Please just help me survive
And I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe for the both of us

I always keep outside a branching tree
When I ask please go to prom with me

Um, there’s a noose in the classroom
There will be no use for a mask soon
Causing these teachers to grab a flask or two
Too much stress and pressure to last through

High school is just a drug store with health class
They’re practically handing you the pills
Bring in your backpack and have it filled
They only wonder why you killed yourself last

So as she was rushed into emergency room to return the pills she owed
I Just wanted her to know the last kiss given to her could only be blown

Still why would someone even cry at her suicide funeral
Because apparently you didn’t know her very well at all
And with no more time to kill, all that’s left on the will
Is just a little bill for one-hundred-or-so sleeping pills

I’m a bad, bad role model who they’re burning alive
But I’ll hold onto these mottos till the end of my life

Please just help me survive
And I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe for the both of us

I’m a bad, bad role model who they’re burning alive
But I’ll hold onto these mottos till the end of my life
