lyrics

Tantamount to blackmail
It’s a racket it’s a ratchet
It’s so hard to click it backwards
If I slacken my attention
There I am again it’s sickening
I can’t control my actions

Did we go over how to best resist
I can’t remember if we’ve ever passed that test
Give me a moment to collect myself
I don’t know better and I think it’s gonna wreck my health

Call it a compulsion
There is something that’s repulsive
In the way it keeps me jumping
What’s the matter honey
Do you like to see me running
Cause I’m running out of something

Did we go over how to best resist
I can’t remember if we’ve ever passed that test
Give me a moment to collect myself
I don’t know better and I think it’s gonna wreck my health
