lyrics

Sometimes I get drunk and enjoy flossing my white teeth.
I like feeling control and being cleanly.
Sometimes I get high and take showers for far too long,
Just so I can rearrange the words to my own song.

Sometimes I take myself far too seriously.
'Cause I get stuck in my own thoughts of me.
But if I was Joan of Arc,
I wouldn't be afraid.
I wouldn't be afraid of anything.

Sometimes I like to hide my head into a book
Just so no one can see the direction of my look.
Sometimes I like too run far and fast and strong,
Just so I can feel the pain of all that I've done wrong.

Sometimes I take myself far too seriously.
'Cause I get stuck in my own thoughts of me.
But if I was Joan of Arc,
I wouldn't be afraid
I wouldn't be afraid of anything.

But if I was Joan of Arc,
I wouldn't be afraid.
I wouldn't be afraid of anything.

I teach myself to let the world see who I am,
'Cause I'm afraid of that.
But if I was Joan of Arc,
I wouldn't be afraid.
I wouldn't be afraid of everything.

Sometimes I let my mind go faster than my words,
'Cause I've been stung by bees but never by the birds.
But if I was Joan of Arc,
I wouldn't be afraid.
I wouldn't be afraid of anything.
