lyrics

(jim steps into his room dressed in leather and a reversed cross necklace. today, he plays the role of a young occultist. tomorrow, who knows.)

i don’t want to know you, i just want to understand you
i don’t want to show you, i just want to reprimand you
all of the things i say to myself
i don’t believe them, i don’t believe them
everything i tuck away into the shelf
i’ll never need them, i’ll never need

i don’t want to know you, i just want to understand you
i don’t want to throw you, i still want to second-chance you
undermined and understated, masturbated for 7 hours
i know it’s hard to say

i don’t want to know you, i just want to understand you
i don’t want to show you, i just want to reprimand you
i always thought the image of myself
would smoke cigars
but upon closer inspection, it turns out
he just smokes cigarettes

i don’t want to know it, i just want to understand it
i don’t want to smoke it, i just want to second-hand it
i already came so far, but i thought by now i’d be a little bit farther than this
i know it’s hard to say

(jim has just finished etching the pentagram into the floor. he has some friends over for the occasion. they all seem disinterested. the ritual is soon to begin.)

something tells me it’s not normal to love satan
but too many opportunities were already lost flaking
it doesn’t matter that you do something good, it just matters that you do
that you do something at all
