Bathroom Stall Hypnosis by Matthew Milia

How does one little girl
Manufacture so much gall?
Your little body's swelling with it all
You're gonna need a bigger room
You're gonna need some strong perfume
To keep those boys interested enough to call

Being young is no excuse, friend
When you're old enough to flush that loose end
After you cut those lines in the bathroom stall

Is your microphone malfunctioning?
Or is it finally broken?
Mine's so loud it's ringing in your wall

So when you look at a photo of us in our prime
How do you not fall apart each time
You think of me?
Or do you not think of me
Very readily?

Bathroom stall hypnosis, doll
Kicks in when that latch closes
Although I'm told the snow gets cold
Through disillusioned noses
And when no one's bearing witness
Will you still be the princess
Of the bathroom stall?
That's all I wanna know

How does one little girl
Pull the wool constantly?
The dry cleaners ain't 24-hours, you see

It's ok to take a break
It's ok not to fake
To be that girl I thought I knew you to be

You tricked that kid in the bar smoke
Into thinking he was in on our joke
Well, he don't know the pattern
Now, does he?

Vitriol is poison
I'm just trying to get some noise in
Before you turn the power out on me

So when you think of our feet in the sweet hurried flight
How do you fall asleep each night
You think of me?
Or do you not think of me
Voluntarily?

Bathroom stall hypnosis, doll
Kicks in when that latch closes
Although I'm told the snow gets cold
Through disillusioned noses
And when no one's bearing witness
Will you beg for forgiveness
In the bathroom stall?
That's all I wanna know

How does one little girl?

Don't call me from bathroom stalls when
The heavy nightmare falls in
I can't help you now, I'm quite afraid

Well, I know that nightmare
Yeah, I've been living there
Since some little girl
How does one little girl
Make me feel so goddamn
Betrayed?
