lyrics

paper tiger, how do you always grin
with notebook pages making your teeth so thin?
it's just a sketch, nothing more, go
take red pens and color the points so
blood stains the teeth

and you're sitting in grade school in order to simulate
the kind of work you'll take when you graduate
and all the while your training will keep you
fearing that your failings will leave you
dead in the street

and paper tiger how do you always win?
cause every time I try, I fail again
camouflage, darker and darker
razor claws, eternally sharper
x-ray eyes, glowing in rapture
jackknife legs, ready to capture
iron jaws, ready to fracture
take red pens and color the picture so
blood stains the sheet
