Lyrics:
I've been gazing at the city lights since I was a child
And you managed to ruin it
I have always been a fan of smiles, had the best of times
Until you came along

And I couldn't sleep with you looming over my head
You made me hate myself, you made me hate myself
Manipulation seems to go so well
With you at the helm
And me in the brig

Keep your distance, I've learnt that it's okay
To cut your cancer from my flesh
Your assistance only made me hate all this again
So keep your distance, you're insane
And I want to love again

All that time I spent under your spell
My world became exclusive shades of blue
And I always blamed myself for all the things that you did
And look at what's become of me

I walked in on you pulling the wings off butterflies
And painting them blue
It makes me think the east cult's on the rise
And you're wearing their jumpsuits

Keep your distance, I've learnt that it's okay
To cut your cancer from my flesh
Your assistance only made me hate all this again
So keep your distance, you're insane
And I want to love again

I've been learning to not care what you think
And I've never been happier without you

I walked in on you pulling the wings off butterflies
With toothpicks and tweezers
I can't believe I didn't see
That I was next in line
