  • 5 Bright Lights and Cityscapes
  • Sometimes I can be perfectly sweet
    Got this sugary me stuffed up in my sleeve
    And I talk of ponies and rainbows and things
    And I'm just who you want me to be
    But like most creatures down here on the ground
    I'm composed of the elements moving around
    And I grow and change and I shift and I switch
    And it turns out I'm actually kind of a b****
    But that only happens when I get provoked
    By some piece of s*** a**hole we all sadly know
    And I sit and I write while reminding you all
    That mean songs are still better than going postal

    And that guy's an a**hole
    That girl's a b****
    Baby it's natural
    No gettin' away from it
    So sing it out with me
    And then let it go
    F*** that guy he's just an a**hole
    Oh a**hole
    A**hole
    A**hole

    I see I've surprised you with some of my words
    And I know that surprises, while fun, still can hurt
    And I hate to think that I ruined the day
    Of the **** and the queen of the high horse parade
    But I'm sick and tired of your poisonous ways
    Your toxin wasting perfectly good space
    And I say what I think
    'Cause it's more economic than drugs or a drink

    That guy's an a**hole
    That girl's a b****
    Baby it's natural
    No gettin' away from it
    So sing it out with me
    And then let it go
    F*** that guy he's just an a**hole

    And I won't let him in
    Under my skin
    You're a sad sack of s***
    That's pathetic
    Just a festering sore
    Who will never be more than that
    If I don't let it

    And that guy's an a**hole
    That girl's a b****
    Baby it's natural
    No gettin' away from it
    So sing it out with me
    And then let it go
    F*** that guy he's just an a**hole

    That guy's an a**hole
    That girl's a b****
    Baby it's natural
    No gettin' away from it
    So sing it out with me
    And then let it go
    F*** that guy he's just an a**hole
