You Started It

I didn’t know how quickly it all would get out of hand,
how it would progress from innocent this to fucked up that.
I didn’t know the fire escape would make quite so much noise,
how could we have expected so much pain would come from life’s little joys?

You started it, you started it;
you’re the one who opened up Pandora’s box.
You started it, you started it,
busting open windows, and breaking down the locks.

I didn’t have any idea that you had such things in mind;
I didn’t know we’d fall together to the other side.
Every time you say that you got inclinations of the deeper sort,
believe me when I tell you — you’re exactly what looking for.

You started it, you started it;
you’re the one who got the snowball rolling down the hill.
You started it, you started it,
Before I knew it, we were running down after; I think I’m running still.

We can’t keep doing this
we have to keep doing this
I want to keep doing this
don’t stop doing this

You started it, you started it;
And now you’re standing there in front of me, standing as my witness
You started it, you started it,
better believe, you’d better believe, now it’s time to finish

About Catastrophe Jones

Wretched word-goblin with enough interests that they're not particularly awesome at any of them. Terrible self-esteem and yet prone to hilarious bouts of hubris. Full of the worst flavors of self-awareness. Owns far too many craft supplies. Will sing to you at the slightest provocation.

    I’m going to stop heaping praise on you, cause it’s gotta be old by now, right… But I have to say, this feels like a song I want to hear to some blaring, vicious music.
