lyrics

Cut the shit, you know we’ve all got our problems, scarred in places we don’t even know. What makes you think that your drama defines you? That’s what I’d like to know. You come in screaming, you crashing the party. You act like all of us have hurt you before. You don’t need to find someone to break you, that’s what they make drugs for. Draw the windows, who’s watching the front door? Too many assholes trying to get in. And to think that you used to be tight bros way back when. But you don’t have to play the villain or victim, you don’t have to throw the baby away. I can see that you keep your mouth open but I can’t hear what you say. Maybe you start with good intentions: just to feel all right. Everyone likes to fight. Everyone likes to get high. Congratulations on becoming your father. Bet you never saw yourself standing here: counting minutes and waiting for something while weekends turn to years. Don’t call me later. Don’t tell me you’re sorry. Don’t tell me all the shit you’ve told me before. You don’t need to convince me you mean well, that’s what your memory’s for. Everyone starts with good intentions: just to feel all right. Everyone likes to fight. Everyone likes to get high.
