I'm trying man I really am Summer's up, it's 4am And the lights are dim again and I'm sick of waiting and taking bad advice through the lens of blood shot eyes and all the smelling salts and compromise couldn't hold me back from saying my goodbyes Never compromised Say goodbye to the starting line and thinking twice say goodnight and god riddance to all your good advice and I'm not asking for someone to hold my hand and growing up, that's just not part of the plan I'm getting out I'm getting up I never know when I've had enough I'll bottom out so bottom's up and it's all too much I'm burning up my lungs belting out my stupid songs drawing blanks on all my right or wrongs I can't believe it, I never thought it'd take this long I'll never shut my mouth I'll never figure it out I'm fucking up and falling down I'll never turn it around I'm never catching breaks Always making mistakes I'm at the end of my rope, and I bend and I break but I know that I'll be better off fucking it up and sleeping it off and I'm never playing it safe, because then I know that things will never change Say goodbye to the ego death and party lines the parking lot the suit and tie to living lies and leaving alibis And I'm not asking for someone to hold my hand I guess it's not part of the plan I'm saying my goodbyes and "wouldn't it be nice" goodbye to all your good advice
I'm giving away all the things that made me stay the mediocrity and a life that's too concrete You know me, bent on complacency I've had it up to here with a life that's filled with fear so here's to better years Wasted hours, they turn into weeks I'm wasting my time and I'm slurring my speech It's all true, I'm hiding my bruises I'm burning out and making excuses familiar bar, familiar job familiar reasons I forgot to let you know it's time to go I'm giving away all the things that made me stay the mediocrity and the life concrete and the hopeless goals I won't complete You know me, bent on complacency I've had it up to here with a life that's filled with fear so here's to better years The city spings and I'm stuck on the ground it's tough to stomach and I can't hold it down my vision is hazy I'm bored and I'm lazy It's more than a maybe and it's driving me crazy do I give this one more shot is this everything I've got Oh no - we'll never know It seems like every night I'm running out of time I can't forgive myself for the days I spent inside killing time is killing me it's harder than it used to be is there a happy end to the blood and sweat? I guess we'll wait and see and it's all clear if patience doesn't sell, you might as well do this for yourself - no one else.
Fire Starter 01:59
You're sorry for none of the crimes that you commit I caught you red handed and I'm sick of your shit I don't respect you at all You're sorry for nothing but you expect apologies from me that you won't get Why don't you choke on your words I hope this lights a fire under you
I'm scared to death of being useless so hold my head and hold my pen write a song they won't forget and get me through this I'm scared to death that I might care a little bit that I might actually give a shit about the things I said and canvas that I wasted I know that something's wrong we've known it all along we're trading time for what we mean instead of trading lies for calm and rationality not used to this, not used to me not used to getting used for what it is I really need I'm sick and tired of wasting time on little screens forgetting what it really means to be a fucking human being now I'm desensitized, anesthetized, to wrong and right and black and white and I'll never get it right I know I'll never get the words out fucking right and all the sick shit that you see on barricades on city streets and on the faces on tv it's fucking burning up, and I just can't let it be
