lyrics

In this subconcious spectacle of my feeble mind I know
Rock and roll means well, but it pours this honey in your ear
And so of course I still believe in minor miracles
I grab her hips and taste her lips
She screams at me and runs back home
Well, I should have known

So now I'm making eyes at every girl in this god damned room
Her and her and her and her and the two of them
Well, this one's at the bar all by her lonesome sipping Stoli O
And I lay some line about how we're on up next tonight
She kinda smirks like she kinda knows
I'm on to something here
But then she disappears
And I should have known

I'm one more incident away from them locking me away
In a place where I can't see my friends or family
And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more
I think of you and how you split my mind in two
'Cause you're so beautiful
Like Elizabeth Banks in Invincible
But all I can see of you are your Bette Davis eyes

Well, this establishes a paradigm that stays with me
I guess that's how you get a reputation that precedes
Your actions just distract me from you ever reaching that stage of attraction
And maybe this would have worked out if it wasn't for that stupid word of mouth
Now I can't help myself
Arms strapped across my chest
I look so good in black
But white suits me best

I'm one more incident away from them locking me away
In a place where I can't see my friends or family
And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more
I think of you and how you split my mind in two
'Cause you're so beautiful
Like Olivia Wilde as Jenny Reilly
But all I can see of you are your Betty Grable thighs

I keep begging them for more
But they've thrown away the key
There's someone in my head
And it's still me

I'm one more incident away from them locking me away
In a place where I can't see my friends or family
And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more
I think of you and how you split my mind in two
'Cause you're so beautiful
Like Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation
But all I can see of you is your Rita Hayworth smile
