Excuse me, but can I be you for a while?
My dog won't bite if you sit real still.
I got the Anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again.
Yeah, I can hear that.
Been saved again by the garbage truck.
I got something to say, you know, but nothing comes.
Yes, I know what you think of me, you never shut up.
Yeah, I can hear that.

But what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of his with her name still on it?
Hey, but I don't care 'cause sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice.
And it's been here...silent all these years.

So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts.
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts?
Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon.
How's that thought for you?
My scream got lost in a paper cup.
You think there's a heaven where some screams have gone.
I got twenty-five bucks an' a cracker;
Do you think it's enough to get us there?

Cause what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of his with her name still on it?
Hey, but I don't care 'cause sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice.
And it's been here...silent all these-

Years go by, will I still be waiting for somebody else to understand?
Years go by, if I'm stripped of my beauty and the orange clouds raining in my head.
Years go by, will I choke on my tears 'til, finally there is nothing left?
One more casualty, you know we're too easy, easy, easy.

Well, I love the way we communicate.
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape.
Let's hear what you think of me now,
But, baby, don't look up- the sky is falling.
Your mother shows up in a nasty dress.
Hmm, it's your turn now to stand where I stand.
Everybody lookin' at you, here taken hold of my hand.
Yeah, I can hear them.

But what if I'm a mermaid in these jeans of yours with her name still on it?
Hey, but I don't care 'cause sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice.
I hear my voice, I hear my voice, and it's been here...
Silent all these years. I've been here....silent all these years.
Silent all these, silent all these years.
