askew

lyrics

and so what else is new, I am recklessly running to you
and I will twist your words askew to make myself think less of you
and so what else is new I am repeatedly running from you
and I'll perceive your words anew to make myself think more of you

and so what else can I do while you are stuck in my head
and I know it's not what intended to be, not what I was meant to do
and so what else can I do while you are here in my head
and it's not what I consented to, oh what have I descended to for you

and so what else is new, I am askew over you
and I will run, run from you until I circle back to you

and so what else can I do, I am repeatedly running from you
and I'll perceive your demeanor demeaningly
till I believe it to be the truth
and so what else can I do as you encompass my ear
and I'm in no shape to confess my eagerness here
in each dwindling opportunity to do so

and so what else is new, I am recklessly running to you
and I'll proceed to be demure until I believe you are telling the truth
and so what else is new, I am encircled by your assertions
and I am left at the whim of assumption
it's not my intention to think poor of you
and so what else is new, I am askew
