These days are blending together, so homogeneous,

Sick of the shit, my life is stagnant like rush hour traffic.

Need a jump start, I’ll take even the smallest deviance

From normality, to help break this 21st century burnout.

 

Fuel gauge is on empty, running on sheer willpower,

Highway hypnosis, I can barely remember the day.

On autopilot, withering away like a dehydrated flower,

Black and white vision, the color scheme of monotony.

 

Work myself to the bone, then snuggle with chronic pain,

Lethargic, can barely get out of bed, can’t enjoy my days off.

Nostalgic for those carefree days, when I was a child,

Having no worries, having all the time in the world.

 

Don’t even have fun anymore, even with my friends,

Exhausted and hurting, don’t wanna be physical today.

Autumn can’t come soon enough, my stress levels

Will skyrocket, but college is a break from monotony.

 

Missing out on the party, I’m always stuck at work,

I’m the night owl, in a forest filled with early birds.

A financial pillar, just playing the cards I was dealt,

But I got a bad case of FOMO, I need a doctor.

 

These days are blending together, so homogeneous,

Sick of the shit, my life is stagnant like rush hour traffic.

Need a jump start, I’ll take even the smallest deviance

From normality, to help break this 21st century burnout.
