Well the pills I got, they ask me 'let's go out for awhile'
And the knives up in the kitchen are all too dull to smile
And the sun, it tries to warn me 'boy those wings are made of wax'
While the things I do kill me, they just tell me to relax.

Oh, Cinderella, all dressed up in all your boots and all your charms
I'm not the fellow, to protect you, or to keep you from all your harm.

And I don't know which is worse, to wake up and see the sun
Or to be the one, be the one that's gone.

And the empty bottle it misses you, and I'm the one that it's talking to
And with you and I just barely strangers, I'm pretty much just left a fool.

Damn, don't the streets feel empty though, just wandering around here without you
Oh the empty bottle that misses you, and I'm the one that it's talking to.

I don't know which is worse, to wake up and see the sun
Or to be the one, be the one that's gone.
