lyrics

I've been struggling to keep my comforter and sheets together,
honestly, this lack of static mocks me,
with every veiled expression of my self-induced depression I'm immobilized,
and more stagnant than the laundry.

I've been striving not to be a cog in the machine
but sometimes can't decide if this sacrifice is working
as each obligatory purchase somehow makes me feel more worthless
like I'm letting life just canter by

don't go
won't somebody tell me why this therapy compels me not to know
why everything you cherish surely someday has to perish
don't grow old

well I watched words slip through out those cherry-painted lips as you apologized
while every instinct warned me
that I'd better savor this regrettable behavior
let it mollify my callous, callow heartbeat.

but I felt you sever more with every vain endeavor
meant to rectify
I'm wrecked if I
let your decision warp me into a derision
just recant the lies
that tantalize, baby

and I never hated you, I just needed a label to
affix to the vessel that I poured all my resentment into,
and I know there's something to be said for all the pain I've caused you but just let me go
