Think I'll Just Wake Up


I puked my thoughts onto the counter

Went to laugh it off

And go on a bender

Just dying, indeed

Nobody to take care of me

And my fucked up ass selves

I'll wander off into this run

Get loaded

And stay fucked up

'Til the morning comes

And the night before was wasted away

Where I have came down

Into a miserable world

Too weak to even communicate to myselves

"What did we do?"

"Who did we fuck last night?"

It's all the same story

We never remember her name

Too busy indulging myselves in her body

And much too preoccupied with staying high

To tell the bitch "goodbye"

My services to my community went swimmingly

'Til I was engulfed with a big score

That shouldn't really worry me

But it worries one and a half of me

And another me is hurt from being told

To have to wait for something 'til May

The half-way paranoid one's tires

Now I'm out here

In a strange woman's bed

With syringes injected into my arms

Again and again

And again

But I'm just not gonna care

Am I?

"What's wrong with my mind?"

"Why is this bitch still not mine?"

"Who's to say whether I should live or die?"

"What's wrong with dying right now?"

This better be done, in the morning

But what is the next day

When sex, drugs, and indie rock never ends?

"Does it ever end?"
