From the Outside

from by The Ativans



It kinda feels like the same song stuck in my head
I need reprieve from the same old same old
Cause everything is fucking mental

I never thought I would ever be here again
Dead soldiers coax stories of old glory
And everyone is pixilated

Just cuz I don’t remember all the stupid shit I did before
What makes you think that I want to be told
I’m used to failing and the best you’ll ever meet at wasting time
I’ll keep on looking in from the outside

Can’t understand all the things getting put in my head
Hear the words but I can’t make sense
I never learned to pay attention

The longest part of life is the middle but then
you grab for earth as you fall down hill
Well fuck you I’m invincible
