lyrics

chorus:
|:I'm getting stupid like I was in school in reverse
Wasted time, I was never cool in the first place and:|

Time fills my hands completely, weighing 'em down
I'm like a turtle on my back, laying around
I can't get up, I haven't got the drive at all
Life moves faster than I do, I can't survive it all
I'm no longer certain I was right to eschew college
Maybe I'd be happier if I worked to pursue knowledge
Maybe I'd have a job by now if I wasn't so frightened
Maybe it's about time I got my driver's license
A blank sheet is my resume, I can't apply myself
To anything but music, I spend days by myself
Surrounded by speakers that I didn't achieve on my own
Sometimes you might almost believe I'm alone
Except that I'd be dead and gone without so much as
A ripple without my most valuable crutches
My family and friends keep me alive in many ways
But I'm still not much good and I don't like myself anyway

[chorus]

I never endeavor, but it's not for lack of trying
For ever and ever, my eyes are black from crying
I want to sail away from myself and my bruised emotions
Visit alternative shores and cruise the oceans
I can't face eternity starting from the Grace Maternity
Hospital, I can't face mortality cause it's impossible
I sometimes dream that I'm attractive and clever instead of boring
But then reality snaps me out of my neverending story
I'm not atreyu the warrior, I'm not even bastian bux
Living in this world of unrequited passion sucks
I find myself bothering with every little thing or
Nothing while giving the important stuff the middle finger

[chorus]

I'm opposing forces, myself and I have to fight
I represent me, I've got my back tonight
Know what I'm saying? It's not exactly reassuring
My mutual annihilation is practically a sure thing
It's the one self duel and I'm caught in the crossfire
The troops have all deserted and the battle is lost. Higher
Powers protect my existance even while mocking it
Do I feel like this or am I depressed and talking shit?
Jesse standing Dangerously close to the edge
Hoping that I know the ledge. I ride a raincloud
To the sun... I wish I could touch the sky
Scared to die but I want so much to fly....
But I see too much disorder in the rorschach design
Of my life so I'm stuck to the earth for lack of trying
