I can't remember a goddamn thing Lyrics, names & places I've been Is it the short attention span? Or is it the pills i take to start my day? C'est la vie sweet memories The short, and long, and in-between C'est la vie, what's left of me? Misplaced chords, conversations & faces Prescribed handfuls of mind erasers Casting shadows on black walls Fuck, I forgot to sing... the sing-along Remind me. Rewind me. To all the times we had. Design me. Define me. I'm built by circumstance.
Life 02:29
Find yourself along in an empty house Skipping meals, sinking into a lonely couch It's just you a remote & re-run TV The leak in your ceiling starting caving in All your fears have been realized Take a train to your job, you're in bed by 9 You gave up your hobbies months ago Put yourself under a microscope It's all magnified, it's all elevated See myself getting fat & lazy Track marks in these carpets tell no lie What a life. You call this life? It's a strife and i'm to blame What a god damn mess i've made What a life. What a joke. Can't change the channel, no remote This is my reality All your fears have been realized Take a train to your job, you're in bed by 9 You gave up your hobbies years ago and put yourself under a microscope
Painted myself in the corner Might as well paint myself pretty So if I self destruct, are you coming with me? I know things haven't changed at all As long as I'm alive, the town is painted red So dig a deeper grave and jump right in Don't burn out on me now Light the fuse & run, Pardon me while I explode I self destruct
Loner 02:19
So far from everything I know But the bottle is only so deep So how low can I go It’s a race to the bottom of 12oz of hope And all I’ve got is this beer that I hold So I choke, yeah I choke Just a weirdo in the corner And there’s no one here for me A lonely tree within a forest, Just the splinters and a carcass My leaves are all dying Firewood to be burned Should have known I’d be a loner, Just a boat without a motor This bottle is mine Empty as defined So raise a glass to me Free & Lonely Walk from everything I know But the rope is only so long So how far can I fall It's a race to the bottom of a Jack & coke Sink to the bottom with my anchor in tow So I choke, Yeah I choke
Collateral 03:01
Are you keeping tabs? Are you keeping count? Is it coming from your heart[beat]? because I have my doubts. What'd you call it a charity? Feels collateral You've got those claws in me. Yeah, they're grabbing hold Grab on like a leech. Yeah, it's getting old But you've got indemnity, so I'll be the host Are we settled up? Is it even score? Are you looking for something more? It's collateral
