I got a black eye
I was probably up to something
I got a black eye and I got it from you

What did I do this time?
I’m guessing probably nothing
I got a black eye and I got it from you

All of the girls must think I’m going crazy
I’m just not sure what I can do about it
I have a cape but it will not protect me
From all the punches that you’re throwing at me

Was it an accident?
I don’t believe in them

Why did you leave behind your favorite item?
I volunteer myself to go and find them
These batteries will power up my flashlight
So I can keep looking when day becomes night

How do I look right now?
The swellings going down
