Reticent

"Reticent"

They warned me about you, said you were moody
Passive-aggressive?  Yeah, you're reticent.
You're too nice, a real goody-goody
To call me an asshole, you tell me I'm innocent!

Innocent?
Magnificent!
Malignant!
Reticent!

Remember playground fights in the play-yard?
Schoolyard dustups at the old school?
Fought like cats and dogs -- you could punch hard!
Now words are your weapons, cause you're so cool...

Innocent?
Magnificent!
Malignant!
Reticent!

Why don't you just come at me straight on?
If you're angry, just tell me you're mad!
Why this act? the game? the put-on?
Just tell the truth!  Trust me, you'll be glad!

Innocent?
Magnificent!
Malignant!
Reticent!
