Lyrics

Hey there seductress

Give those pretty eyes a rest

You can't begin to comprehend

The kind of message you send when you look at me that way

Either get in or get out of the game

Unless you like what you do to me

Staying away for days, leaving me to decay

Then coming back with so much glee in your face

 

The center of all confusion lies within you

But I don't have to feed into it anymore

Now you can play me from behind a door

 

You're worse than any bully

At least I'd know he didn't like me

Can you even give me a hint?

Or do your like to keep me in suspense?

 

Well I've got something to let you know

I'm done being your platonic John Doe

I deserve better than you anyway

Now it's time to look the other way

 

The center of all confusion lies within you

But I don't have to feed into it anymore

Now you can play me from behind a door

 

But then I think to myself

This isn't even worth it

To talk about, to write about, to go on about

Wanna end it now but a question rises somehow

 

Am I beating you or are you beating me?

 

Sometimes the subject can turn around

(You could care less if you heard my words)

When I realize that I'm only wrong

(I bet I don't even exist in your mind)

And my aim isn't what it planned to be

(Just a guy you notice from time to time)

As you're the one who's beating me

 

 

I can only stop myself

I can only block you out

I can only cure myself

I can only stomp you out

 

The center of all confusion lies within you

But I don't have to feed into it anymore

Now you can play me from behind a door
