This song is by Jawbreaker and appears on the 2004 reissue of the album Dear You (1995).

Would that you could touch this angel in a clutch of snakes
Oh pretty, pretty, I'm aflame
So excited, so unslept, somewhat littered, so unswept
You have to sleep before you wake

I am spilled and poured, I am peeled and cored
I am hanging from the floor
Flicker like a freak through a sleepless week
In a black cell of forever

There's a point to this, a point I think I often miss
Oh clever, clever, where's your heart
You can turn the phrase until it reads a million ways
It makes no sense but it's as good as it is sad

I am sad, elated, I am segregated
There's this stitching and it's itching
All my friends are dead, or sleep in distant beds
At least these enemies stay close

Take me to the pretty ones
I want to be a pretty one
Sign me to a nice girl
So she can ruin me eternally

They offered me a million bucks, all I want's a steady fuck
Oh steady, steady, where are you?
Channel surf a sea of static, see the prize but you can't have it
There's something thankless in a wish fulfilled

I am thrilled and bored, I'm unskilled, adored
All of both and none of one
I would kill for more, I haven't killed before
I could set this heart on stun

Take me to the pretty ones
I want to be original
Sign me to a nice girl
So I can sing her something meaningful

In my perfect world I'd be signed to a nice girl
It would cost one million kisses
