I'd love to burn, I'd like to set myself on fire
Light a match and wait until I'm ash
And then collect me into an urn and put me on your mantle
I complete your living room

Cross my fingers and pray to God
I really hope I haven't got
To sit tied up on this chair for long
Before I'm set ablaze

I'd love to melt, I'd like to drip myself down into water
I'd fill a cup and then be drunk
And when I stumble through your room at four o'clock this morning
Well, there's no parties in death

I have a sore throat and an aversion to people
(What d'ya have going for ya?)
I keep the blinds closed in the summer
Never was able to commit to things until, well, you know

Here's a little something I've been working on
I'm not too proud of imte, I can't say I'm too proud of imte
If I don't care then it won't hurt when you tear imte to shreds

Tell me if the ending is hollow or cheap
And tell me if the cast needs to get more sleep
And tell me if you think the main character is too much like me
