This song is about rebelling against your parents and doing whatever you want, becoming a rebellious child. The meaning behind the title is about being made up of mistakes for going against the rules.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm my dad's worst fears
"Don't run with scissors,"
So I grabbed shears
"Go clean your room"
Threw dresses out the window with a gun

[Pre-Chorus]
Hi, hum, hi, hum
I love to run away 
With the moon I'll stay
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Do you wanna play?

[Chorus]
Rules I break, hearts I'll take
I'm dressed in mistakes
Bite your lip, don't give a shit
I'm dressed in mistakes
Rules I break, hearts I'll take
I'm dressed in mistakes, bite your lip
Don't give a shit
I'm dressed in mistakes

[Verse 2]
Stole my parents' car
Don't have the license to give a shit at all
I'll draw on the walls
I pop the heads off of all my Barbie dolls

[Pre-Chorus]
Hi, hum, hi, hum
I'd love to run away
With the moon, I'll stay
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Do you wanna play?

[Chorus]
Rules I break, hearts I'll take
I'm dressed in mistakes
Bite your lip, don't give a shit
I'm dressed in mistakes
Rules I break, hearts I'll take
I'm dressed in mistakes
Bite your lip, don't give a shit
I'm dressed in mistakes

[Bridge]
Haha, hum
Haha, oh
Ha, hum (Haha, uh-hum)

[Chorus]
Rules I break, hearts I'll take
I'm dressed in mistakes
Bite your lip, don't give a shit
I'm dressed in mistakes
Rules I break, hearts I'll take
I'm dressed in mistakes, bite your lip
Don't give a shit
I'm dressed in mistakes

[Outro]
Haha, hum (Ha, hum)
