Paint Your Face Red

You paint your face red
Is that because you're going crazy
You wanna let it all hang out
You got no one to put a hand on your shoulder


She talks to herself
in the car window parked on the corner
I walk on, I walk on by
mark that one down to myself
 
I paint my face blue
'cause I don't wanna be touched any longer
Breathe me in, breathe me out
Clean yourself off
Anything to do with blue


So special now
I heard I was special to you
Anything but special now
Anything but special to you
 
She pulls his hair
She bites at his hand, now
She's kicking and scratching
Anything to break free, anything to break out


Say you wanna go for a ride
I watched it all fall through
That's okay man
That's just fine
I'm used to this floating around
 
I heard I was special now
I heard I was special to you
Breathe me in, breathe me out
Clean yourself off
Anything to do, anything to do
 
I go down the stairs
 I ignore the signs
They're following me, man
Threatening with violence
Rape my mind


It drips off of corners
It lingers in the back room
It sits on my front door step
echoing with laughter
keeps me awake at night
awake at night
 
Heard I was special now
Heard I was special to you
Breathe me in, spit me out
Clean yourself off
Anything to do
Anything to do with blue
