DEAR & THE HEADLIGHTS


Skinned Knees And Gapped Teeth Lyrics

was it a broken arm or collar bone
it depended on the week
and me with my black eyes
stitched from head to feet
uncomfortably happy
all skinned knees and gapped teeth

all the summers with the speak-n-spell
trying to make the robot cuss
if mother knew the words
we used while she worked
she would be fuming
cuz that's not how she raised me

and when you taped over
a good half of the wedding tape
i bet you never thought thundercats
would ever make you cry
you sat in disbelief
as Lion-O made plans to
slay the whole wedding party
they're discodancing to their deaths
oh, ma, you just don't know it yet

and all the hand-me-downs stuck to me
from all the blood i couldn't keep
oh, such a likely scene
10-year-old body
face down on rosall street
my bike passed out on top of me

remember how i swore i would
pass you up in age
you just scoffed at me
well i'm still gonna do it
just haven't quite figured out how yet

we cornered teddy ruxpin
smashed his story tape
and put guns n roses in
and watched him sing along to
appetite for destruction
yeah, he knew every word
i'm dying in the hallway
oh john you gotta turn it off

and when you taped over
a good half of the wedding tape
i know you never thought thundercats
would ever be the end
you sat in disbelief
as Lion-O made plans to
slay the whole wedding party
oh john you gotta turn it off
