lyrics

Keen To The Stress Queen

i'm keen to the stress queen,she
builds me up and leaves me half clean
quite the scene with the stress queen
makes her way so very pristine
take us, she make us, we run 'round to fake us, we
towering over her, glowering under her
never know when she will tear us asunder, her
wish our command so we think we withstand her
get all you going for before the closing door
life's speed is fast, today is not your last
keeping uneven keel, ignoring what you feel
get all you going for, she is your narrator
we keen to the stress queen
in hopes she sees our dying careen
quite the scene with the stress queen
nervous sweat stinks but it's unseen
make me so nervous to be in her presence, she
holding the winning hand, plays in the shiny band
never know when she will knock us down where we stand
fight is inviting, i think she's inciting to
make us uncomfortable falling into the void
but that you feel this way, you'd think i'm paranoid
follow her sweaty grace, speed fuels the race
to every closing door, promises even score
i keen to the stress queen
it's her teeth i'm resting between
quite the scene with the stress queen
every new day's like it's never been

i've been with the stress queen
she paved my heart to something obscene
quite the scene with the stress queen
we're all so normal when we're glacine
dipping my pigtail into the inkwell, she
towering over us, showering down to us
while our eyes upturned tunnelling under us
make me so nervous to be in her presence, she
causing me heart attack teaching me what i lack
then she run out on me like she never coming back
finding the closing part burns my stupid heart
note in the path she led, "worry" was all it said
i'm keen to the stress queen
where she is is where i've been
quite the scene with the stress queen
makes her way so very pristine
