Rusty Substitute

from by Airlooms



The rusty substitutes
They keep their eyes all glued to you
They watch with attitude
They watch for one wrong move from you

But you're never wrong

You're clever full of tricks
You run the show until they're pissed
And when they finally flip
You find you'd rather just blend in

Does it feel wrong?

But once they call on you
You find the answers all get
Tangled up and screwed

Was it all fluke
With the rusty substitute?
