lyrics

We ride the same bus. He knows my name. Covers a wet cloth. He sweats to stain. “I wanna know what kind of games you like, I wanna know what kind of games you like.” He talks like he knows me, so I’m being polite.

Know not to cater untidy spreads. We rode the same bus until it wrecked. “I wanna know what kind of porn you like.” He asks me these questions, did he earn the right? No way.

Hey, hot thing. You win some and you lose some. I’m calling security. Hey, hot thing. You blame some and you shame some. I’m hailing an ambulance. Hey, small thing. You catch some and infect some, but I don’t wanna be the sullen type. I don’t want my secrets safe for life. Onomatopoeia ‘til I never get to sleep.

I wanna know if a no means alright. I wanna know if a no means alright. He looks past my answer, did he earn the right? No way, no way.

Hey, hot thing. You win some and you lose some. I’m calling security. Hey, hot thing. You blame some and you shame some. I’m hailing an ambulance. Hey, small thing. You catch some and infect some, but I don’t wanna be the puzzling type. I don’t want my secrets safe for life. Onomatopoeia where I wouldn’t wanna be.
