Sleater-Kinney Youth Decay

Acid tooth

It’s got nothing to do with you

but if you wanna watch me chew

my teeth are cutting you out


Well it must be in your head

It must be something that I did

Food just doesn’t seem to work out

Am I rotting out?

Daddy says I got my mama’s mouth

I’m all about

a forked tongue and a dirty house

Mom has said

yes this happened to me long ago

But no one would believe me when I said:

Close my mouth

Was I born to accommodate

I’m so good at playing dead

words just don’t seem to come out

Should I eat something sweet instead

wash away all those things we said


how many doctors will it take

Oooh Oooh befoe I disintegrate
