Lyrics[edit | edit source]

shattering fast
i'm glass, i'm glass
i'm shattering fast
i'm glass, i'm glass
i'm shattering, shattering
glass, glass, glass
i'm shattering fast
i'm glass, i'm glass

i've got a lot of tears
in a blood-stained jar
it's been a real long time
since i walked the fine line

you put up the walls
you put up the walls
and hold all my calls
i'll be by the pool

won't you please
worship me
and won't you love
what i adore

all alone
in my soul
i betrayed
rock and roll
rock and roll
rock and roll
rock and roll
rock and roll

everybody knows i'm last, i'm last
and everybody knows i'm fast, i'm fast
i'm shattering, shattering
glass, glass, glass
i'm shattering fast
i'm glass, i'm glass

you put up the walls
and hold all my calls
'cause i'll be by the pool
playing with my guns
'cause there's nowhere to run
'cause i'm the one you love now
staying after school
breaking all your rules

shattering fast
shattering glass
shattering last
i'm shattering glass
