The Lyrics

...(this is based on the music video version, btw)
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then the conversations we have tend to get slowed way the hell do-own
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then you always turn up too ti-ired, need to tune-up your brain's inner gea-ears
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then it takes the better part of the day to finish all the thoughts on your mi-ind
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then I get a little bit frustrated cause you can't get your words out in ti-i-ime
Spit it out fa-ast-like
I hope that I'm not soundin' too ha-a-arsh
Spit it out fa-ast-like
But I wish you'd finish what you start
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then you turn your quick-witted nature into somethin' far more mi-ild
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then I feel like I'm in a glitchy cutscene in a game that I'd give two sta-ars
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then you go all William Shatner on me and I cannot believe my eye-eyes
Spit it out
Ev'ry now and then I get a little bit mad as hell when you won't say what you want outri-ight
Spit it out fa-ast-like
Hopin' I don't come off as an a-a-arse
Spit it out fa-ast-li-i-ike
But I wish you'd get to the next part

Normally you're fast as light
Sometimes you become a pauser
I wish you'd only tell me why
But right now that's a tall order
So why are you takin' this much ti-ime
To say the things you want?
Cause if this was the way that you talked all of the time
I wouldn't be this pissed off at you, you know I'm ri-i-ight (you know I'm ri-i-ight)
It seems almost random the places you stop and sta-art
If you could cut it out, I won't have to kick your a-a-arse
Your words don't sound urgent, ri-ight
But with all of these pauses, I-I-I'm
On the edge of my seat to-onight
Know you know that I'm a huge fan of your stuff
And all the wisdom that you impa-art
But all I get from you
Is sev'ral ellipses apart

I'm aware that I sound impatient as shite
But if I talked like you, you'd depa-art
Ev'ry word you say
Is sev'ral ellipses apart

Spit it out fa-ast-like
Have you been hittin' the bottle ha-ard?
Spit it out fa-ast-like
Or are you just bein' a big arse?
There's no facts lost from your mind (there's no loss, dude)
Not a single neuron severed
See, you're not rollin' back your eyes (there's no rollin')
Tryin' to recall thoughts better
You're just dickin' around with me, ri-ight (you're just trollin')?
Bloody say what you want
Your lack of true consistency gets on my nerves, right
But lately I've seen lots more of your pause-heavy shi-i-ite (pause-heavy shi-i-ite)
You gotta tell me, dude, it tears my brain apart
It's not like you're out of breath, you're bloody not pa-a-arched
Need you to tell me outright
Why are you pausin' ev'ry ti-i-ime?
Takes three minutes for each wo-ord, why?
Wait a second, I had a terrible thought
Your explanation, when it depa-arts
Your mouth, each word will
Be sev'ral ellipses apart

And upon your face, an expression so snide
You know what you are doin', you a-arse
All the words you say
Are sev'ral ellipses apart
They're sev'ral ellipses apart
Spit it out fast-like
Spit it out fast-li-i-ike
Spit it ou-ou-out
