Lyrics

Keep giving me things to throw in your face
Keep floating away to outer space
We can all see your head is not on straight
And it’ll come back to haunt you someday
And it is a very different ghost
Than you have ever felt at home
And I can’t believe the guilt hasn’t gotten to you yet

And if I’m
Out of line
Tell me so I can say this business is mine
Just as much as it is yours
And if I’m
Out of line
Tell me so I know what to shove down your throat
Next time you try to bring this up

I think I have the upper hand

Keep making me promises you’ll never keep
I’m not the one that’s losing sleep
And I don’t deserve to be treated this way
But I know it’ll all be worth it someday
And you dig yourself a deeper hole
While I’m curating my arsenal
And I can’t see how you wouldn’t see it coming in the end

And if I’m
Out of line
Tell me so I can say this business is mine
Just as much as it is yours
And if I’m
Out of line
Tell me so I know what to shove down your throat
Next time you try to bring this up

And they ask me how I keep the faith
With those red flags waving in my face
And I tell them patience is a virtue so
I’m putting in my time so that
I’ll have some ammunition left
When the novelty of being loved wears off

Keep hiding behind your stubborn walls
I guess we’re really quite similar after all
I’m familiar, I know where these walls can be weak
And I’ve slithered around and I’ve gotten a peek
And they’re gonna topple down someday
And you’ll regret treating me this way
‘Cause you know I’ll have a lot of things to hang over your head

And if I’m
Out of line
Tell me so I can say this business is mine
Just as much as it is yours
And if I’m
Out of line
Tell me so I know what to shove downy our throat
Next time you try to bring this up

I think I have the upper hand
