better half lyrics – jawbreaker

i see him coming.
we hold our rocks. we are ready.
the things we’ll do to him,
they aren’t fit for anyone.
hey, this is serious business.
i’m gonna hate myself.
still, i just can’t wait to begin.

the monster inside me,
he can’t be talked out of anything.
he’s got an appet*te.
no, he’s hungry now.
i’ve just gotta restrain him.
the seam inside me grows.
kiss your better half goodbye.

and all those things you trusted in. come and gone.
the man that you pride yourself on. come and gone.
all the control you think you hold. come and gone.
anything that can go wrong will find itself come and gone.

his body lies broken.
hey, some harsh words were spoken.
i feel terrible.
it just got away.
had to make him pay
for the hole in my heart.
it’s been my fault from the start.

and all those things you trusted in. come and gone.
the man that you pride yourself on. come and gone.
all the control you think you hold. come and gone.
anything that can go wrong will find itself come and gone.

the monster inside me,
he can’t be talked out of anything.
he’s got an appet*te.
no, he’s hungry now.
i’ve just gotta restrain him.
the seam inside me grows.
kiss your better half goodbye.

and if you think it all makes sense.
can you tell the difference
between a quarter and twenty five cents?
anything that can go wrong will find itself come and gone.
