Melanie Martinez - Detention Lyrics




[Verse 1]
I'm not a bad guy
So don't treat me bad if I'm feeling sad, alright?
Please don't be mad if I don't smile back, alright?
If I fuck up my words, don't think I'm absurd, alright?
Alright?

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm physically exhausted
Tired of my knuckles beating
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
Sadness, can't you see it?
You're too busy seeking self-pleasures
Look at how I'm feeling
You write me up and say it's love
And I can't believe it

[Chorus]
Hey, can you meet me tonight in detention?
I can feel your blood pressure rise, fuck this tension
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Pretending everything's alright is detention

[Post-Chorus]
De-detention
De-detention
Pretending everything's all right is (Shh)

[Verse 2]
The teachers don't care about me
Fuck how I feel, as long as I make money
They let them do whatever they want to me
They're the customer, I'm chopped meat
I'm chopped meat

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm physically exhausted
Tired of my knuckles beating
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
Sadness, can't you see it?
You're too busy seeking self-pleasures
Look at how I'm feeling
You write me up and say it's love
And I can't believe it

[Chorus]
Hey, can you meet me tonight in detention?
I can feel your blood pressure rise, fuck this tension
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Pretending everything's alright is detention

[Post-Chorus]
De-detention
De-detention
Pretending everything's all right is detention

[Bridge]
I wanna go home and you say, "Now is not the time"
Fuck being all alone in back of the classroom, ah
Stop calling up my phone, trying to say that I've been out of line
When all I ever asked was to go to the bathroom

[Chorus]
Hey, can you meet me tonight in detention?
I can feel your blood pressure rise, fuck this tension
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Pretending everything's alright is detention

[Outro]
Tonight, I can feel your blood pressure rise
Let me crawl up into your mind
Pretending everything's alright (Is detention)

    Pretending everythings alright, is *DETENTION*





    Me : Welp, better go to Detention

  2. minseon seo

    A teacher bullied me, i told her that people used to get along with me started to ignore me, and she confessed all sinful mind she couldn't live with, for living clear and dumb. You look up but i'm not able to hear you, i'm too high.

    Let’s all be honest, she was very extraordinary in this video. She was dancing and singing great, her outfit was amazing, and she was looking very beautiful! 🤞🏼

  25. MV DancingGuy

    Melanie was bullied on a bus, was in a class fight, talked sh*t about the principal, got turned into a doll, got injected by syringes, was in a play, literally was a cake, almost got turned in another plastic carbon copy, and danced with an orange and you’re telling me she got f*cking detention?! This doesn’t add up!!
