you have no idea whats good for me
neither do your fucked up friend who got nothing nice to say
bring it back to me
this worlds not fit for living this worlds nit fit for living anymore.

speak to each other like when your sleeping in bed
leave bashfulness and shame out of it
I just need texture i just need peacefulness to win.
I got nothing you all don't have.
