Machine Gun Kelly - papercuts

[Chorus]
Bleach my hair, mess it up
Take my life, dress it up
Signed a deal, I got papercuts
They wanted them, but they got us
Yeah, yeah, uh

[Verse 1]
Uh, sleepin' in, faked sick
Smoked a blunt, had a kid
Don't belong, I'm a punk
Hello world, you fuckin' suck

[Refrain]
Hey, hey, keep my mouth shut and wave
Hey, hey, I'm dancin' on my grave
Mhmm, mhmm

[Verse 2]
Everybody's so nice lately (Everybody's not nice)
Polarized feelings, I don't wear them on my face lately
(I don't wear them on my face)
Internalized everything the headlines say lately
(Everything they say)
Demonized just because I was an angel face baby (Baby)
[Interlude]
Career suicide

[Refrain]
Hey, hey, keep my mouth shut and wave
Hey, hey, I'm dancin' on my grave
Mhmm, mhmm

[Chorus]
Bleach my hair, mess it up
Take my life, dress it up
Signed a deal, I got papercuts
They wanted them, but they got us
But they got us
Yeah, yeah

[Outro]
Hey

“papercuts,” the lead single off of Machine Gun Kelly’s sixth studio album, mainstream sellout, discusses his struggles with living in the public eye off the tails of his successful 2020 record Tickets to My Downfall and high-profile relationship with actress Megan Fox. Stylistically, the song takes on a grittier, more industrial sound than the pop-punk sound of his previous record, while still recruiting ​​blink-182 drummer Travis Barker on percussion. Alongside the song, MGK released a Cole Bennett-directed music video, marking their first collaboration and Bennett’s first rock video. The day before the song and video came out, Kells tweeted a screenshot of a FaceTime call he had with Bennett, showing him with a seemingly shaven head. News outlets like Buzzfeed, Yahoo, Entertainment Tonight, and Billboard reported that he shaved his head, but it was ultimately a bald cap that Kells tore off in the middle of the music video.
