Another fucking double shift.
Pick my feet up and pry my eyelids.
Open wide.
Hope I catch this train in time

My integrity is wearing thin.
So I spill my heart out with this pen.
Fill another notebook with my grief.
Spend another year in self-defeat

Bite my tongue.
Grind my teeth.
Just wish that I could distance myself from me.

I know I’m a basket case.
I’m just trying to erase,
All these thoughts running through my head.
This voice saying I wish I was dead.
Nothing gets better with time.
So sick of proving myself right
When time and time again.
I'll end up alone with this pad and pen

Fuck this city, fuck my friends.
I’m so tired of tying loose ends.
Just to burn them down.
I can’t stand the sound.
Of your voice anymore.
It’s driving me nuts
So sick of smoking half-smoked butts,
Just to calm my nerves.
I know there’s no cure for me.

So sick of proving myself right.
Nothing gets better with time.
So sick of proving myself right.
I guess It’ll all be fine.
So sick of proving myself right
