Check out the lyrics to Choker below.

[Intro]
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

[Verse 1]
I don't bother anyone
Nervous when I stand
Chokin' on the circumstance
Only smokin' second hand (Mmm)
Cut us open, spread us out (Mmm)
Dry us in the sand (Mmm)
Lay the fire beside, beside (Mmm)
And you begin to understand (Mmm)

[Chorus]
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's comin' for me, comin' for me

[Post-Chorus]
Mmm (I know it's over)
Mmm, mmm, mmm


[Verse 2]
I don't bother anyone
Never make demands
Chokin' on the circumstance
Self-sabotage is a sweet romance (Mmm)
Seems all I worth is what I'm able to withstand (Mmm)
Sooner I can realize that pain is just a middle man

[Chorus]
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's comin' for me, I see

[Bridge]
No volunteers to cosign on my fears
I sign, on the line
Alone, you're gonna change the circumstance
And know I need to move right now
'Cause

[Chorus]
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's comin' for me (Only smokin' second hand)
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's comin' for me, comin' for me

[Verse 3]
Like a little splinter buried in your skin
Someone else can carve it out, but when you got the pin
It hurts a little less and you can even push it further in
When your body's screaming' out, trust your mind's listenin'
Like a silhouette that you can barely see
As a shadow cast upon the ground where you'll eventually
Lay forever, but they day goes on, the sun moves behind you
You get taller, bolder, stronger and the rearview only blinds you

[Outro]
Mmm, mmm, mmm
