Lyrics for Sharpener by Cavetown:

Verse 1
Sharpener's callin' me again
Tryin' to turn it into some
Thing I can draw into my skin
Make it a picture that I'll love
Insert something that I wish
I could get in the bath and scrub right off

Chorus
Why am I ashamed to look the way I do?
All 'cause an escape to me was just a sharpener to you

Verse 2
Big old pill to inch around
There's no copping out this time
Tried my best to get it down (Get, get, get, get it down)
Sometimes seems like I'm still young
And lookin' at the boy across the sink
Thinking "What the hell have you just done?" ("What the hell have you just done?")

Chorus
Why am I ashamеd to look the way I do?
All 'cause an escapе to me was just a sharpener to you
Why am I afraid of things I let inside my room?
Just wanted some company, broke the sharpener in two

Outro
You say, why am I like this?
You mean, why am I stupid?
Guess you know you're not tryin' to fix this
You mean, why am I like this?
You say, why am I selfish?
Guess you know, honey, you can't help it

Song Facts

This song heavily treats about being self-harmful and getting kind of addicted to it (“Sharpener’s callin' me again”), without seeing any other ways out. Robin also sings about getting sick of his body and himself at all (“Why am I ashamed to look the way I do?”), and how much it’s painful when people don’t recognise a problem of hurting your own body.
