Been throwing drugs at the clock And drugs cost money so I really really shouldn't be shocked I bet it all adds up It probably all adds up, sadly I never do a "balance inquiry" I turn my head and crumple the receipt I bet there's something wrong with this machine Based on my financial expertise Isn't that funny? I thought I had a lot more money I've got insufficient funds

When I say I’m a perfectionist I mean I’m lazy and terrified When I say that I am anxious I mean I’m sober enough to drive When I’m feeling this Powerless I want you to hate me the way I hate myself I’m pushing everyone away I’m pushing everyone away No one should care if I’m okay Since I’m pushing everyone away When I blame it on the timing But it's really cuz the feelings aren't there When I make it like my guard is up but I've given up and do not even care The more you try The more I hide I think I'm contagious And I don't want to spread my sorrow I’m pushing everyone away I’m pushing everyone away No one should care if I’m okay Since I’m pushing everyone away Every now and then I try to force myself to care Find myself another passionate weekend-long affair I understand my lack of normal feelings makes you scared I don't want to pretend that this is fair I’m pushing everyone yes I’m pushing everyone yes I'm pushing everyone away I’m pushing everyone away No one should care if I’m okay Since I’m pushing everyone away

Tomorrow, tomorrow I'm quitting tomorrow I need to get through today Tomorrow, tomorrow It's never tomorrow It's always a day away

Bored enough to grab a cop's gun Running out of things to do for fun Acting so detached from everyone Even new things feel redundant And mundane I'm so spoiled it's insane But I can't program my brain To be more easily entertained So for now I'm shutting it down I'm shutting it down All I can do For my brain right now Is shut it down Trying to figure out A way to distract myself But I'm not sure what from Trying to kill the time Until I get to the finish line While I forget to run Every other day I wanna quit Like I had my big idea and that was it I can't think of any decent messages Or find the syllables and synonyms that fit In a phrase That actually needs to be conveyed That could cause some kind of change That no one's already said in a cooler way I'm a fool Instead of making you proud, I'm letting you down Standing in place like a fool right now, I'm letting you down Trying to figure out A way to distract myself But I'm not sure what from Trying to kill the time Until I get to the finish line While I forget to run I keep in mind That if I close my eyes I won't know what I'm missing So I'm walking blind I will not find Whatever it is I should be looking for Trying to figure out A way to distract myself But I'm not sure what from Trying to kill the time Until I get to the finish line While I forget to run

I think they know my name here I use up all my shame here I wonder how pathetic I appear At least I'm not on methamphetamines, ya see Unlike the crew that's buying lottery at 3 in the morning at my local deli I always pay in quarters I think the owner's daughter Thinks that what I'm ordering is weird At least I'm not a total pervert creep, ya see Unlike the bros buying baconeggandcheese At 3 In the morning at my local deli At least I'd never try armed robbery Ya see, that place got held up twice in one week It wasn't me I would never hurt my local deli I'm setting the bar so low Trying to just pass go But I'll probably just pass out on your property I am like my home An island all alone Famously forgotten destiny Oh how much potential is buried But maybe that's our whole identity Maybe we're a piece the puzzle needs
