Electric Bandaids

lyrics

Take me to the home, give me electric bandaids taped across my wrist
Take me to the home, give me controllers with joysticks
I can't fight anyway, give me companions who don't care if they exist
It's your right anyway, I'm not old enough to pick

But remember the helmet on my head against the wall
Remember the tube socks on my fists against my face
Remember that love just turns to shit once you put it into me
Look at the scars you can't erase

You can't hurt me worse than I can hurt myself

Put me on the news, show all of America just I broke your dreams
Put me on the news, let 'em drown in your despair
They can't imagine a mother could be as cool and patient as you seem
When you look back on your life before you left me here

But remember the helmet on my head against the wall
Remember the tube socks on my fists against my face
Remember that love just turns to shit once you put it into me
Look at the scars you can't erase

You can't hurt me worse than I can hurt myself

Take me to my home, it looks like my baby's going to get some sleep tonight
I'll come back in the morning with some games he might enjoy
You look so peaceful, even with that thing that doesn't let you bite
Maybe you're dreaming you'll wake up a normal boy

Remember the helmet on your head against the wall
I remember the tube socks on your fists against your face
And I remember when love seemed like the cure, if we could give enough to you
Look at the years we can't erase

You can't hurt me worse than I can hurt myself
