lyrics

it’s 4am and i’m sitting on the edge of the bed
i had an argument debating whether i’m better of living or dead
i said fuck the future i’m not even living now
i drown in the sound of a mountain of debt that i’ll never undo (well goddammit)
when you said it finally settled in
four words and one hyphen then I barely blinked again
you are self-absorbed
you’re so bored with the world around you and you don’t even know what for
i couldn’t ignore what was sitting in front of my face. or could I?
i seem to be good at ignoring the facts i’ve displaced
i am a master of sadness degrees of happiness erased
i’m never gonna face all the hate that I made in the world in the name of one last sin
well goddammit there I go again turn the sentence self-reflexive
self absorbed emotions thin take the blood and make the exit
if i were feeding on the mind if i were feeding on kinetics
but i am feeding on my heart and the darkness is anorexic

there’s no more funerals said the joker to the uniform
so what are you doing it for you’re staying up late at night
wringing your hands with indecision living in prisons of meditation
thinking a little more contemplation will keep all the people from learning the truth
so cover it up speaking in second person it’s better than love
better than learning the words to stop and think it’s better than opening up to say
i am i am i am i am i am not
i am i am i am i am i am not
comfortable with myself comfortable with my body
comfortable living in the shade of the ways that i take what i want not knowing
how i lie to myself how i’ve lied to every lover
how i hide from being uncovered beneath the snarky sheets of another misdirection
when you said it finally settled in
i’m afraid of being honest because honestly i’ve sinned
i’m afraid of being honest because honestly i’ve sinned
and I’m ashamed of myself not knowing where how to begin
