lyrics

Sometimes I wanna take the car out on the road, flip it into park and smash myself into a million little pieces. I’m tired of knowing what about myself is wrong but never mustering up the resolve to really try and change it. I walk outside and people say “hey” and sometimes I just wanna say “hey,
go away.
Go away.”
So I guess I better stay inside.
I’ve read that if you just sit in a chair and think of focusing your nervous energy on the beauty of breathing you could live a life of real tranquility. But I just thought of every stupid thing that’s been keeping me from sleeping. I close my eyes and it won’t go away. I plug my ears but they’re ringing out,
“HEY!
HEY!!!!
HEYYYYY!!!!
HEYYYYYYYY!!!!!”

It keeps me from believing
that maybe someday the thing will work.
Maybe I won’t feel like a jerk.
Maybe the words I say will stop coming out weighted.
Maybe someday I’ll want to breathe and
Maybe the people that I meet won’t lead to a certain future where I’m betrayed and I’m so jaded.

& that’s why I’m so fucking sad.
