lyrics

i don't need official numbers
to know we've been fucked over
and i don't owe you an apology
for assuming the worst before i let you closer

i'd say welcome to the party
if it wasn't such a bummer
to sit in a room performing open heart surgery on ourselves
just to bleed out what's happened since last summer

the devil never needed an advocate
our fathers never learned how to fully live
and us girls try real hard not to have heroes
who might murder us in our beds.

we've been under fire since we turned twelve
or sixteen, or seven, or twenty
and you dare come in here like you didn't know
when it's just now that you chose to hear us yelling

take a seat in the back row
where the floorboards bend upwards like waves
there is so much baggage and dark shit in the basement
and we'll deal with it piece by piece

the devil never needed an advocate
our fathers never learned how to fully live
and us girls try real hard not to have heroes
that might murder us in our beds.

better believe there's a list
better believe there are tunnels
in which we store boxes of evidence
and whisper the truth to each other

and you ask how we still have any trust left
under these circumstances
well, you try to grow a gut feeling that is right some of the time
and then you just take chances.

the devil never needed an advocate
our fathers never learned how to fully live
and us girls try real hard not to have heroes
that might murder us in our beds.
