Me and this world are no longer on the same page We haven't been for such a long time Can't see more than three feet in front of me I got some tea I'm finally ready to spill Yeah I'm a goddamn dinosaur waiting for the kill But I'm just swinging around indiscriminately You and I are gonna have to clear up some room There's not enough for both of us If you wanna make an omelette you gotta break A couple of eggs I'm not myself without a problem I can't solve Progress is slow but I'm in it for the long haul I don't know, don't listen to me I'm an idiot and I never know what the fuck I'm talking about It's not like I know how to train it And this is all I ever am This is all it ever is It's not like I know how to tame it And this is all I ever am This is all it ever is

If I could just go on the record I got a couple complaints I'd like to register Ignoring advice from my counsel Not to rely on a shaky metaphor I must be staging a coup I already told you I'm coming for all of this They must have gotten to you And nobody told you And nobody told you And nobody They've been staring at you with those heart shapes in their eyes But I don't think they know what you are Oooh, there's something about you How did we get by without you? I don't know how you don't know this And I don't know how to help you Cause I don't think you know what you are I don't know what to tell you No I don't know how to help you If you were to take off the costume You'd take one look at your phone and pitch it in a lake Some awful tough talk coming from you Preparing remarks about who I imitate I've still got something to prove I don't give a damn how heavy that statue is Put up a little armor, too And nobody told you And nobody told you And nobody They've been staring at you with those heart shapes in their eyes But I don't think they know what you are Oooh, it's always about you How did we get by without you? I don't know how you don't know this And I don't know how to help you Cause I don't think you know what you are I don't know what to tell you No I don't know how to help you

You deserve this You are not to be trusted with nice things You break them on purpose When every other way's still not the right thing You've got those hater blockers on Nobody want it with you You never have to feel bad Because why would you? You kiss your boyfriend with that mouth And I'm the one who gets to think about it And there's that dream again You are never too quiet in my sleep It must be on me, then Cause I'm fucked up too and you've got receipts I wish you'd just say it one time with your chest But you finally got all you wanted and you've got no regrets But I still feel it in my blood In my blood In my blood and my bones I feel it in my blood In my blood In my blood and my bones

I'm gonna be here for a little bit I broke the lid You're bout to see some shit This feels irresponsible Glutton for punishment Sucker for ritual I could do this all night Another song, yeah One more drink and cigarette I could do this all night I'm in the wind You're gonna have to come find me Bathed in blue light It feels so much better I'm almost there Almost got it right I've almost found it I could do this all night I could do this all night I do this all night

I woke up in a different place I'm not sure what to make of it I don't know if it's a dream or one of those alternate realities But you never went anywhere I'm right where I belong And I don't feel bad about anything anymore Finally It's warmer than it should be I must have done the math right I feel like I could have made this We must be past the worst of it I came back in the fourth quarter It's just like the beginning And I don't ever want to leave here This must be the place But just then the walls start to shake And the whole place starts to fall apart And now you're getting on a plane And I think you know you're gonna break my heart But I've done all of my research And I know I've gotta wake up soon But if everything they say is true There must be a place where I still have you And maybe someday I'll be... And maybe someday I'll find you But if everything they say is true There must be a place where I still have you

I don't recognize this place Do they even have a sun here? The dark could swallow me whole Has a hydrogen bomb just gone off? I'm good This is all fine I never did find that place from any fucking terrible escapist song I wrote I don't wanna be here anymore Nothing here Nothing feels familiar Is there anybody else here Or did we lose the campaign? And I don't wanna hear the first thing about you Not even your name I'll just be up too late drinking way too heavy while it floats through my brain I still don't recognize this place Light the last candle Try to see through the smoke Am I all the way out of my goddamn mind? I'm good This is all fine It's not like you're gonna find that peace in a melodramatic suicide note

What - What's all this now? Are you goddamn kidding me? I only left you alone for one second How does something like this happen? First of all, how dare you? What kind of operation is this? If you were half the person - You gotta be goddamn kidding me Lost the plot about right here The irony does not escape me You know it's only okay when you do it I want some answers right now Too much time on the back foot Too many subs and sneak-disses I swear I pick the worst hills to die on God, am I lucky I'm so motherfucking gorgeous

I could leave in a minute If you'd just let me get my things and go Your fingerprints all over it tell me everything I don't want to know I always thought I'd have more time Things get to be longer and longer ago What if my heart breaks right in half And the weight of it seizes me by the throat? I don't think there's any place safe for me anymore. I don't think
