I Don't Know What I Thought


Stupidity controlling my insides

Malpractice of catastrophe

Manipulating my own mind

To do funny things

Like text you all the time

You can't be here with me

So get out of my life


The madness of not having your heart

The dangers of us falling apart

I would never dare to understand

Can't get to know ya

You can never be had

Mal'daptation is our process

We can't get to use one another

And another and another and another


Fall off my French fry platter

Land in the gutter

I want you so

You want me not

I've lost control

It's over

You're gone


If I ever get to ever receive love

Maybe I would have the right to give it

You're just unavailable

Maybe Jean told you some crazy story

From her point of view

So it's over

We're thru

Forget about me and you


I'll never get over this resentment

I'll hold this against the both of you

For as long as I can

This can't be undone

Forget it

I'm on the run

We are completely done


If I terminate the calling

From this wildfire in my heart

I'll excuse myself from the laughter

And puke in the park

Some sickness grabbing ahold of me

And leaving me scarred

I don't want you

I don't want me
