No idea where you're going wrong?
I'll show you where you're going wrong
This is no revolution song
No more fight, 'cause I feel so strong

One small step and the weakness shows
Gonna light a fire, keep me on my toes
No more cracks, this is all brand new
Wrapped in plastic, tight, but I'm turning the screws...

A perfectionist, liberal masochist
Who has never been kissed, at least, not yet quite like this
Keep going deeper, still, stereo pneumatic drill
Who will pay the bill? Don't think I've reached my limit

Still gonna celebrate hard like I never saw it coming
And the damage is done but the battle isn't won
Drinking cheap champagne, don't let it be all in vain
It doesn't look so good, I know, but I'm here to tell you the truth

That this song is a big fuck you
For everything you put me through
I built this suit of armour
Now you know the truth
That this song is a big fuck you
And even when my heart turns blue
I'll wear this suit of armour
I'll wear this suit

Slip back through but I'm on the rise
No more shame 'cause it's not my size
Just one glimpse and a dirty word
There's a thesis trap underneath this skirt
Inked in blood, academic juice
Better hold on tight 'cause they're cooking my goose

Just a fantasy, your blood money keeps me alive
With these sober words, I'll sacrifice, sell you for the right price
But when the shit goes down, shackled by your chains
I'm gonna show you what trust is and just where mine was misplaced
'Cause it's hell right now but I'm not your slave
And I'm back on track for the promised land as I help them dig your grave
Just another line of code until nothing else is owed
And I'm gonna wear my best suit now you know the truth
