lyrics

At what point did I fuck this up

I lost myself but I gained a crutch

It’s so much harder than I thought it was

Been spending my nights getting too fucked up

I think I’m a mess, I think too much

More dependent than I ever was


There’s a train track

Nestled between my house and work

And I don’t stop at the stop sign

I put my life in the hands of the universe

If there’s a train let it take me

If there’s a train then I guess that it’s my time

And I gasp and I cringe and I hope and I dread

And then it’s over, I’m on the other side


Life’s a short trip

You’re the pilot

I’m not sure that I’m ready to land this thing yet

I've always wanted to drown

My odds are better in the water

So if we go down I’m aiming for the ground


I wanna set myself on fire

Could you please watch

See me burn as bright as I have always seen myself

So you’ll know I’m not a liar

So I can feel all the pain I've always thought I felt

I keep ending up here on the floor

At least in different rooms

So at least I don’t get bored

Oh, existing’s such a chore

It's so strange how some days I end up stuck in bed and other days I don't get stuck until I reach the door


Life’s a short trip

You’re the pilot

I’m not sure that I’m ready to land this thing yet

I've always wanted to drown

My odds are better in the water

So if we go down I’m aiming for the ground


Life’s a short trip

You’re the pilot

There's an answer and I'm sure we'll find it


Try to be enough for myself

You're so strong you don't need help

It's so hard to rely on anyone else

You're so strong you don't need help


I tried to leave the house

I stopped at four different gas stations

Went back to the first and found the nerve to get out

But when I finally made it in, couldn't decide what to get

I went and hid in the bathroom, it's my favorite anxious habit

Then I went back home, I gave up and got stoned

I can hardly face the world, I sure as hell can't face it alone

I'm holding out for something more, let's see what life has in store for me

I'll try to keep breathing, but existing's such a chore

So I am holding out for more, let’s see what life has in store for me

I’ll try to keep breathing, but existing's such a chore
