The Forest 03:37
We are all in the Universe. And things, they seem to be getting worse. So I will try so hard to see the forest. But there, there's a tree before us. We are all sinking lower. And we are all tired of getting fucked over. So I will follow along to the chorus Of all the freedom fighters that came before us. We all share the Universe. But we are all trying to be first. So I will try so hard to show you the forest. But there, there's a God-damned tree before us.
I have got the Nerve to tell ya I have got the nerve to tell you off. Nerve to tell you I won't let you Call me Sweetheart I won't let you call me Sweetheart. I'm not your sweetheart! Chorus: I, I, I won't stand for Strange men callin' me Sweetheart. I, I, I won't stand for Strange men calling' me Sweetheart. I, I, I'm not your sweetheart. I am not your mother fuckin' sweetheart! I have got the nerve to tell you off. My true sweetheart Is Matt Mitchell. My true sweetheart is Matt Mitchell. You're not Matt Mitchell! I don't care if You think I'm pretty. I don't care if you think I'm pretty. I'm not that pretty! "Sweetheart? Sweetheart? I'm not your sweetheart! I'm not your daughter, I'm not your girlfriend, I'm not your wife. No, you can't hold the door for me! No, you can't buy me a drink! I can buy my own drink, alright? So just back off, dude!"
