about

Bigfoot? Is that you? I'm not like the others, Bigfoot! I see through the monster coating to the gentle loner inside. I bet you have a wounded raccoon friend that you tenderly nurse back to health while you go *coo, coo*. But in the end they shoot you.

lyrics

You’ll have your sweet sixteen
When you are 33
Put on your party dress
Put on your jewelry
Laid down your hopes and dreams
They’ve aged so gracefully
Perfectly unfulfilled
Adorned with bad poetry

Shots of vodka and drinks of rum
Whatever it takes to come undone
What it takes to smile just once
And disregard the advice from everyone
They're all just reflecting the game they’ve played
As if they're choosing more floats for their parade
You should hear the things they’ll say
The kind of words for which they should be ashamed
“If you won't give yourself to him then someone else will”
As if you’re a list of prescriptions anyone could just fill

Me, I just wanted to be myself
Stop feeling like I was living inside someone else
We're all paragons of mental health
Mmmhmmm
I think I'm done following the road I’ve been on
It's worse than living your life on the run
It's worse than chasing shadows in the sun
Clouds and weather balloons on the horizon
Blurry pictures and bible things
At least those things are still mysteries

You’ll have your sweet sixteen
When you turn 33
Put on your party dress
Put on your jewelry
