[Verse 1]

Well, you shouldn't doctor yourself

Well, I pictured somebody else

Someone who looks like what I look like

Would you say that the one of your dreams

Got in you and ripped out the seams?

That's what I'd say

That's what I'd say

[Verse 2]

He was a sucker for your double dose

Motherfucker turned white as a ghost

Don't you say hi

Don't you say hi

With your broken sink for a face

In a head that just takes up space

He's not half right

He's not half right

It's already half past

And it won't last

[Verse 3]

I was sticking up for my friend

When there's nothing much to defend

It's a lost fight

It's a lost fight

'Cause when I talk to you on the phone

Well, it's just like being alone

It's not half right

It's not half right
