sluttering (may 4th) lyrics – jawbreaker

flattered that you think i warrant ugliness. gutters
drain west, mud made a mess of us. it’s time to leave
this place. i’d saw through your wrist to find a
better trap that fits. i’d saw through your traps to
find a better you, a part of you that lasts. i saw
through your trap and into my own wrists. saw we were
through, red ribbons spill to blue: a sight to sore
your eyes. i got this dress. i’m hiking it around
this waste of laughter. slow dance alone with no one
to the sound of four hands clapping. congratulations
to you both, i hope somewhere you’re happy. if
there’s a moral to this story then i wish you’d show
me. hair in the blood, fly in the disappointment.
rubber, i’m glue. i’ll write the book on you. it’s
sticking to my face. you need a little less than what
you take for granted. this is the sip that’s drinking
back from you, blacking out your eyes. you need a
little more suppression of your appet*tes. this is
your honeymoon, in separate rooms, it’s neither sweet
nor bright. i made a word to give this state a name,
this game a guess. i call it “sl*ttering”. it means
as little as your little test. you are your worst
revenge. your very means, they have no ends. this is
a story you won’t tell the kids we’ll never have. if
you hear this song a hundred times it still won’t be
