Fucking around in your body bag,
They turned my illness into a fad.
And your poetry wouldn't seem so bad,
If it was something I had found when I was feeling less sad.

But it's dangerous to go alone,
So keep me talking on the phone.

Fucking around just to pass the time,
I've no vocation but I won't go outside.
And you make it sound like I deserve to die,
But don't you think a longer punishment would best fit the crime?

But if you're waiting for me to make a noise,
Then you should know that I have lost my voice.

Fucking about in your body bag,
I'm not asleep but please treat me like I am,
And if I stir for a second or more,
It's just a blip cos I am never opening that door.

I've been jump-scared too many times before,
And if this is what it's meant to be,
Then I think I ordered the wrong thing.

And sometimes I think, this bitch don't like me,
And I'm struggling to figure out why.
Sometimes I think, this bitch don't like me,
And it makes me wanna fucking die.
Sometimes I think, this bitch don't like me,
But if I do something with my hair,
Then maybe I'd be a little less frightening,
And the people wouldn't stop or stare,
Not that I care, but I care.

But if only I could spell my name...
