lyrics

I’m feeling like my body has a mind of its own
Sometimes it leaves me all alone
I can’t control the things it does to cushion the blows
When harm is near it always knows
How to keep me safe from harm
It never fails, it never gives a false alarm

Ears make wax, eyes make tears
Drinking makes me older
Eyes make tears and I don’t know why
Why do they have to make me cry?

It’s kinda like my body has a brain for itself
It only uses just for health
No matter what I do to try to stand in its way
My body has the final say
And it keeps me safe from harm
It never fails, it never gives a false alarm

Ears make wax, skin makes sweat
Thinking makes me older
Skin makes sweat and I don’t know why
Why can’t it just let me be dry?

Ears make wax
Eyes make tears
Skin makes sweat
Brain makes fears
Living makes me older
