What did you just say
I don’t believe it
Is there any other way
That you could mean it

No, you don’t seem to mind
What you just said implied

I don’t think that I’m the type
To overreact
To an inconsequential snipe
But I (have to) see that
You don’t seem to mind
What you just said implied

You know it makes me feel particularly small
And I wonder if you care at all
You seem (to be) happier after I fall
And I wonder if you care at all
I wonder if you care at all [drop vocal]

It was clearly you intent
As you were shouting
To be spiteful, not just to vent
Seems there’s no doubting
You had it in mind
To convey what you implied

I struggle as I seek
Another meaning as you speak
With allusions so obscene
But you’ve left me little room
For anything but to assume
I understand what you mean

I heard what you said
You can’t defend it
You’re not at all upset
So don’t pretend it
Wasn’t on your mind
You meant what you implied
