i'm letting my hair grow long down past my eyes and my ears every body part you recognize, every limb you've held onto for years this is just a simple action with a gravity you can't deny it's in the way i'm going out with friends it's in the way the sun sets in your eyes i'm not responsible for making you feel anything so if i'm not at home, well i'll be around, just don't go looking for me you caught me in a nervous breakdown you caught me with some scissors in my hands i'm breaking all my promises i'm losing everything i am truth is that i'm not going anywhere, some days it kills me just to speak replay your every movement, i'll watch you like a cutout movie scene don't tell me that you're doing better, just let me miss you from afar and I will learn to adapt to the distance, I will drive with no one in my car if it gets to be too heavy i will scream until i spit out both my lungs i will stare into the deep, dark nothing until i vaguely see the sun i'm not responsible for making you feel anything we're fucked and alone i'm not happy or sad, i'm just not anything
Loser 02:34
i'll catch you later or maybe not i forgot that i'm a bug and you're a bird while you have wings, i'm in the dirt waiting to get stepped you call me a loser laugh at my basement skin i drink alone every night and tell my friends i'm staying in again, oh wait, i'm dead, i have no friends i'm such a loser man but hey at least i'm trying i'm only good for playing dead well hey i guess Connor's right the city bus is surfing past, i really am no one
i pull from cigarettes and short breaths you say you want me to speak but i got no words it's all just smoke and noise you use your distant voice on a telephone pretty sure all my friends r ghosts watched you walk through the wall woulda tried to catch ya didn't wanna fall is this what it comes down to is this where we're at sorry if i tried to help u you know i'm always too late for that you pull my skin back you can look inside is it appealing the things i like to hide is this what it means to be drunk and 19 got nobody to care but i like it that way a ghost with no one to haunt afraid of empty space
Trash 02:43
i'm told a lot of things i know aren't right i never know who's my friend they always end up smoking outside i know you went to catholic school and you never had your head spin lets burn some trash outside your house and throw all the people in it i always make it clear that i don't lie it's okay if i don't count the white ones, right? everybody tells a white lie trash lets burn some trash
Puke 01:38
who would want to be with a guy like me i'm skinny, i'm clumsy, i'm just so embarrassing as you can see i don't have that much to offer to you but something about you has made me fall in love w you so i go to parties in hopes of talking to you and when we're there i drink a lot to try and look cool i'm so dumb and too drunk, about to puke all over you you don't know how bad i wish i was that other dude i'm still dumb and still drunk, about to puke all over you you don't know how bad i wish i was that other dude.
ur at a party you are drinking cause you're cool i washed all my clothes out they started to smell just like you been meaning to tell you you don't have to try so hard whenever i see you don't wanna hear how you fell apart it's been fourteen days i'm wide awake too tired to care to restless to stay in one place you're in his car now probably fucked out of your mind i'm keepin it cool now can't see straight and i don't know why you and ur choker you and your perfect sense of pride you know i'm defeated i can't let you win this time
