with your [bare hands] ! !
i just want [to sleep]? !
i just want to sleep against [flypaper] ? ! !
or maybe press your ? ![cheek]
against it too [stop seriously just stop]??

well then convince me [otherwise] ! ! !
because [i swear these] !
tattoos [of broken wings] ! ?
on my back [are real] !

I'm 200 times [smaller than you] ! !
well if you don't shut up, i'm going to throw you into a jar like the [fly] that you are. we'll find one big enough and maybe i'll put myself in it you [stupid gnat]!
