lyrics

With my mouth painted black, I blew you a kiss through my baby teeth.
I gave everything back and stood still like a deer in the headlights.
I didn't know any names, I didn't know any real skull & crossbones. We drank and drove on the Hollywood Freeway and threw the forty-ouncers out the window.
I didn't know I could fly away away away away I fell down all the time and searched for my name on all fours on the pavement.
With X's for eyes, we burned holes in our arms just to pass the time.
The sun fell from the sky and I wore out the grooves on your 45.
I didn't know I was chained. I never knew I could chew through the bulk of it. Come liberation day we stood drinking beers in somebody's driveway.
I didn't know I could fly away away away away
I fell down all the time and searched for my nam on all fours on the pavement.
I washed away my wounds — the ones I got just to be like you. I cut myself just to feel, and found out I was really real.
