lyrics

You know I can't stand to be alone
and though I left a desperate message on your phone
do I really want to know where you might be
keep hearing voices inside my head (wake up)
but I can't quite make out what they said (make up your mind)
could it have been something to do with me?

every time I feel my luck is turning around
it never seems to last for very long
staring at the ceiling it is obvious now
everything I've ever done was wrong

I should have listened to my friends
the only ones who really care 'bout me
oh well at least as far as I can see
they'd never let me down

I should have listened to my friends
they always tell me how it really is
they always tell me how it really is
however bad it sounds

You're sucking out all the joy (you told me)
and we're starting to get anoyed (you warned me)
it's time to act like a man
and not a boy

wake in a bed I don't recognize (that's why)
and no amount of alcohol will sterilize (it's no surprise)
the worn out empty shell that holds my soul
you've got a point I should act my age (that's it)
clean out my stash, erase my grindr page (no fucking shit)
I've got no money left to pay the toll

Still I keep descending into depths rich and strange
where creatures swim within the fading light
I'm running out of air but there's so much that remains
Can't seem to stop my study of the wildlife

I should have listened to my friends
the only ones who really care 'bout me
oh well at least as far as I can see
they'll never let me down

I should have listened to my friends
they always tell me how it really is
and they don't judge me for the things i did
they'll always be around

(you told me)
(you warned me)
I'm not a boy
pick your ass up off the ground
take a good hard look around
your world is crumbling down

I should have listened to my friends
the only ones who really care 'bout me
oh well at least as far as I can see
they'll never let me down

I should have listened to my friends
they always tell me how it really is
and they don't judge me for the things i did
they'll always be around
