lyrics

Start the car
Let’s take a ride before it gets too dark
I’ll turn the heat up
Because you like when it’s hotter
It can’t be more awkward than this

Fix your hair
Adjust the mirror until it’s perfectly paired
With every single piece of English perfection
Oh god your complexion is clear

Stop for gas
I really wish that we could all get past
The regular unleaded things I’ve been screaming
I hope you’ve been hearing them all

I don’t want to
I don’t want to start a fight
I will start one tonight
I don’t want to
I don’t want to but I might
I always wanted to
You’re right

Paint your nails
You picked a color that is neutral and pale
You’re wishing now that you had chose something brighter
To showcase the fighter in you

Seventeen
I’m in Boston you’re in Aberdeen
I’m exhausted from the internal bleeding
I can’t just keep sleeping it off

Call the cops
Yeah let’s encourage them to take their shots
At all the animals who can’t get a better grip
I’ll let this sweater rip off

I don’t want to
I don’t want to start a fight
I will start one tonight
I don’t want to
I don’t want to but I might
I always wanted to
Alright

Are these clouds or are these mountains?
Are these dashed or solid lines?
The angel sitting next to me
Is the devil in disguise
I’d rather drink a pint of gasoline
Than look into her eyes
And tell her lies

I’m telling lies
I’m telling lies
I’m telling lies
I’m telling lies

I never wanted to
I never wanted to start a fight
I always started them
Alright

I don’t want to
I don’t want to start a fight
I always started them
Alright
