Take a gander at the entirety of the lyrics and see if you agree...

I think the kids are in trouble I do not know what all the troubles are for Give them ice for their fevers You're the only thing I ever want anymore We'll live on coffee and flowers Try not to wonder what the weather will be I figured out what we're missing Tell you miserable things after you are asleep

Now we'll leave the silver city Cause all the silver girls gave us black dreams Leave the silver city Cause all the silver girls Everything means everything

It's a hollywood summer You never believe the shitty thoughts i think We had friends out for dinner When i said what i said i didn't mean anything We belong in a movie Try to hold it together till our friends are gone We should swim in a fountain I do not want to disappoint anyone

Now we'll leave the silver city Cause all the silver girls gave us black dreams Leave the silver city To all the silver girls Everything means everything

I was afraid I'd eat your brains I was afraid I'd eat your brains

Cause I'm evil Cause I'm evil

I'm a confident liar Have my head in the oven so you know where i'll be I try to be more romantic I wanna believe in everything you believe I was less than amazing I do not know what all the troubles are for i fall asleep in your branches You're the only thing i ever want anymore

Now we'll leave the silver city Cuz all the silver girls gave us black dreams Leave the silver city To all the silver girls Everything means everything

I was afraid I'd eat your brains I was afraid I'd eat your brains

Cause I'm evil Cause I'm evil Cause I'm evil
