What Being Alone Is Like


Shutting down and unwinding myself

__out of my mind and into the world

A world where nobody hits on me

A world where nobody

__spends ev'ryday with me

What a Hellish life

Nobody by my side

No woman to even ask out

Makes me just wanna claw my eyes out

So I would not have to see the madness

I must look pretty crazy

__to never be around anybody

People must think I'm a freak for it


__whatever pays the bills


I swear I just wanna die right now

I already got my 6 year chip

Don't know why else I'd have to stay alive

Being utterly alone

__is like watching paint dry

The results are invisible

A lot like watching water boil

It takes a long time

__before you see any bubbles

Except there won't be any bubbles

It's like my stove is broken


And the water just sits in a pot

Doing nothing

I'm not even falling in love

There is no one in the rooms for me

I might as well date a normie

But have no place to meet one

__that I can go to

And "damn it all to Hell!"

__that's not fair!

I seem to be going nowhere


The wheels are spinning disastrously

What the Hell is wrong with me?

I just don't get it
