Oyster

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

The world is an oyster
Locked in a shell
You like the taste of it
Can't take the smell

I can't sleep to save my life
The day is done but I don't think I got it right
I don't want to kiss right now
You're probably just what I need, I can't stand your mouth

The world is an oyster
Locked in a shell
You like the taste of it
Can't take the smell

I dot my T's and cross my I's
Pretend that I can write, I haven't got a nice thing to say
About anyone except the one
Who caught me staring, so I just walked away

No one likes to give themselves
Over to an empty bed
If you're gonna sleep like that
Then you might as well be dead

But you still want all the covers
And no hair tickling your face
You're so proud of your physique
But you still want your cake

I got it

The world is an oyster
Locked in a shell
You like the taste of it
Can't take the smell
