lyrics

I wanna let go of all of these tangles
And march right into the sea
Thrash out at threatening figures
And throw up bad memories
And I'll erase all of those that did harm me
Instead of realizing multiple flaws
Massive congratulations spilling out of the devils jaws
My mind miscalculated how females subjugated
Masculine strength in numbers
Don't let the boys slip under
My mind miscalculated how males are subjugated
Feminine strength in numbers
Don't let the girls
What prison
Got ahold of me
When I got more than I could possibly need
I made a pile out of all of my fortunes
It reaches up and topples over
I prop it up with all my excuses
What does the universe plan for me now
I can't imagine ever succeeding
Cuz being born was the ultimate sin
Throw my hands up
And I guess I know I'll never win
