queen/drama

over the phone is easiest/my mother always said i would make a good actor

my eyes rest easily on the floor/my mother always said i went crazy when people visited

i say yes, i would love to meet you today/my mother always said i was a drama queen

BUT ALONE I HOLD THE SILENCE BETWEEN MY EVER PARTING LIPS

MY MOUTH OPENS SO WIDE I TURN INSIDE OUT THAT IS WHAT WE CALL PANIC

MY HANDS FUMBLE IN THE BATHROOM CUPBOARDS AND FIND THE REMEDY

i paint my lips with deep red blood/my mother caught me once trying to be a lion

the only difference is that now, i feel obliged/said i would fool the world
