Cavetown – Sharpener
Sharpener's calling me again
Trying to turn it into some
Thing I can draw into my skin
Make it a picture that I love
Instead of something that I wish
I could get in the bath and scrub right off
Why am I ashamed to look the way I do?
All 'cause an escape to me was just a sharpener to you
Big old pill to inch around
There's no copping out this time
Try my best to get it down (Get, get, get, get it down)
Sometimes seems like I'm still young
Looking at the boy across the sink
Thinking, "What the hell have you just done?" ("What the hell have you just done?")
Why am I ashamed to look thе way I do?
All 'cause an escape to mе was just a sharpener to you
Why am I afraid of things I let inside my room?
Just wanted some company, broke the sharpener in two
You say, why am I like this?
You mean, why am I stupid?
'Cause you know you're not trying to fix it
You mean, why am I like this?
You say, why am I selfish?
'Cause you know, honey, you can't help it
