Periphery Lyrics

by Fiona Apple

oh the periphery
they throw good parties there
those peripheral idiots
always have a bite to bare
bare it if you can
if you really want to
go to the periphery
have them celebrate your name
have them forge you a pedigree
and then you'll be
let to run the races lame
run if you want
if you think it's worth it
a night with me
cause i don't appreciate
people who
don't appreciate
all that lovin musta been lacking something
if i got bored tryin to figure you out
you let me down
i don't even like you anymore at all
oh the periphery
i lost another one there
you found a prettier girl than me
with a more even tempered air
and if he wants her he should get her
cause i think you think she's worth it
or maybe they'll move from the periphery
buy themselves their own plot of land
and i care in a different capacity
i'll just be
hopin he makes a good family man
and if he finds himself yearning
for a stroll on the silly side
nothing wrong as long as he's learning
besides he can take it up with his brethren or with his bride
just not with me
cause i don't appreciate
people who
don't appreciate
all that lovin musta been lacking something
if i got bored tryin to figure you out
you let me down
i don't even like you anymore at all
that lovin musta been lackin something
if i got bored tryin to figure you out
you let me down
i don't even like you anymore at all
oh the periphery
oh the periphery
oh the periphery
oh the peripheries
stay away?
stay away?
away?
away?
