lyrics

I used to have fun
I used to be outgoing
but now I can only tell old stories
but who will I become
with the seeds that I am sewing
one of those washed-up high-school losers in their forties

I used to have friends
I used to love them dearly
but now they’re only memories of a past life
but I’m a guy who tends
to take things too sincerely
I’m gonna die alone, like a junkie livin’ the fast life

and I feel like a snake’s molted, empty skin
that still looks the same, but has no life in it
maybe one day, my soul will come around
but ‘til then I’ll stay rotting on the ground

I used to have dreams
I used to keep a journal
but now I’m only looking at my feet
I can’t be sure, it seems
I’m dying in a circle
I’m a song of self-destruction on repeat

I used to go to sleep
and it was full and rich and deep
and I’d dream dreams I’d want to keep
but now it’s shallow and weak and cheap
and now I will stay up ‘til three
think on my insufficiency
and drown it in TV, caffeine, and anything mind-altering

so pour me a cup of something vile
it seems I’ll be up for quite a while
move on with your life; leave memories on the shelf
‘cause getting hung up on old times, you’ll only hang yourself

I used to go to sleep
and it was full and rich and deep
and I’d dream dreams I’d want to keep
but now it’s shallow and weak and cheap
and now I will stay up ‘til three
think on my insufficiency
and drown it in TV, caffeine, and anything mind-altering
