A stranger's just a friend who hasn't stabbed you in the back just yet, But don't you worry, they will I can't believe that you haven't seen this coming I guess it's all been part of the thrill If you've got the money I've got the respect A quarter-life of apathy and oh, the self-neglect Everyone has anger, I just found a vent Everyone does damage, I just do mine with intent I hope you don't feel paranoid I want you to feel safe Just stand upon that "x" right there And we both can escape I swear I only rent this island These traps were ready-made The only double-crossing here Is in this blanket that I made Love has got no borders, nationalities or genders So there's nothing there to stop a connection If you spent your whole life waiting for a hero I guarantee that you never met them. I'm getting older as I write this, You're getting older as you listen You never liked me fantasies, You're never gonna like this one. You'll never be somebody If this is how you deal with friction Love is such a stupid game, I only deal in fiction. I hope you don't feel paranoid I want you to feel safe Because when I betray you I need to see your face Tell me that you never had that feeling Like you should be afraid My face is even carved into the mountain On this island that I made.
