Straitjacket Alanis Morissette lyrics

Something so benign from me
Construed as cruelty
Such a difference between
Who I am and who you see

Conclusions you come to of me
Routinely incorrect
I dont know who youre talking to
With such fucking disrespect

This shits making me crazy
The way you nullify whats in my head
You say one thing, do another
And argue thats not what you did

Your ways making me mental
How you filter askewed interpret?
I swear you wont be happy 'til
I am bound in a straitjacket

Talking with yous like
Talking to a sieve that cant hear me
You fight me tooth and nail
To disavow whats happening

Your resistance to a mirror
I feel screaming from your body
One day Ill introduce myself
And youll see youve not yet met me

This shits making me crazy
The way you nullify whats in my head
You say one thing, do another
And argue thats not what you did

Your ways making me mental
How you filter askewed interpret?
I swear you wont be happy 'til
I am bound in a straitjacket

Grand dissonance
The strings of my puppet are cut
The end of an era
Your dis-creditings lost my consent

This shits making me crazy
The way you nullify whats in my head
You say one thing, do another
And argue thats not what you did

Your ways making me mental
How you filter askewed interpret?
I swear you wont be happy 'til
I am bound in a straitjacket
