Define Normal

(Verse 1/Intro)
Why can't I
Feel the way I shake when I'm away from you
In my heart I can sense
The pulse compulsive cause of you
Wring my jaw on the words you never said
Lay my eyes to sleep
In a corner of my head

(Chorus)
Take note
Its not a threatening pose
The laws of plain denial
Its what brings us close
Why should I bother being trained
Being hung by your bow tie isn't formal
I guess my motto wasn't living tamed
But writing my own definition of normal

(Verse 2)
My minds not what it was
Hold the bruises and betrayals
If your expecting mercy just because
Then sing your preachers to my prayers
I write my vocabulary in my scars
I don't learn personality with index cards

(Chorus)
Take note
Its not a threatening pose
The laws of plain denial
Its what brings us close
Why should I bother being trained
Being hung by your bow tie isn't formal
I guess my motto wasn't living tamed
But writing my own definition of normal

(Verse 3)
I prance to the stuttering of my own dance
I sing away from holy woods
I never ache for a second glance
What's at stake is hard to take
Don't forbid me of me
I'm worth more than a grayscale silhouette
And I graduated top honors on honesty
I'm the familiar stranger you've only just met

(Chorus)
Take note
Its not a threatening pose
The laws of plain denial
Its what brings us close
Why should I bother being trained
Being hung by your bow tie isn't formal
I guess my motto wasn't living tamed
But writing my own definition of normal

(Bridge)
Fat chance you understand
I'm advanced in epiphanies
Not one curled dear endearment you keep canned
Lounging on a conveyor belt of identical disease
Watch out!
He's coming with a can of oil slick
Look out!
Try to round me up and see what sticks
One for me and me and me
Scoring points for individuality
I dare you to define normality

(Chorus)
Take note
Its not a threatening pose
The laws of plain denial
Its what brings us close
Why should I bother being trained
Being hung by your bow tie isn't formal
I guess my motto wasn't living tamed
But writing my own definition of normal
