lyrics

He's got this almost smile,
it's just the sun in his eyes,
if you think that he's dancing,
then he's just swatting flies.

The corners of his mouth fit into his cheek,
like christianity into a (darwin) finch's beak.
Everything about him to the sound of his voice,
reminds me of myself and that I have no choice,
but to be like every single last boy,
that used to be himself,
but now has children of his own.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one.
Standing on a grave stone,
thinking when I finish.
I'll be standing on a grave stone,
thinking how I am his.

I'll be standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll get one.
Standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll perish.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
hoping that I never have kids.
Standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one,
thinking how I'll never breed.

Standing on a gravestone,
jumping off the deep end,
thinking how i'll never breathe.

Boys build up their hate because of hate they receive,
as every single day they are held witness to disease.
This hate stays with them in their entire existence,
and finally comes out as soon as they have kids.

Teaching that inanimate object a lesson,
and talking to yourself with oppressed aggression.
Why should I have to take this name,
if I'm the last one it's going to stay that way.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one.
Standing on a grave stone,
thinking when I finish.
I'll be standing on a grave stone,
thinking how I am his.

I'll be standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll get one.
Standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll perish.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
hoping that I never have kids.
Standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one,
thinking how I'll never breed.

Standing on a gravestone,
jumping off the deep end,
thinking how i'll never breathe.

If you think it's a smile it's just the sun in my eyes,
but if you think that I'm dancing then I'm dancing.
