You can blame me for all the things they say But the things you do, well darling that’s on you If you wanted out, then why’d you stick around? And now your just another vacant heart I’ve found And now your just another vacant heart I found [VERSE] As I recall the silence broke With your parents in the next room The only sound was the dog at your door And your bed against the floorboards Patiently we waited ‘til the town went to sleep When we woke up in each other’s dreams Picturesque it was almost perfect The way you were talking to me And now we’re strangers in the street I’ll string you up and hang you high Like a marionette doll, so you can live your lie You deserve the worst and if that’s all it takes Then can you really blame me for all your mistakes? We’re older now and times have changed And I can’t recall your face I still remember that expression The looks you always gave Patiently I waited till you found your way home Kept the porch lights on, waited on the phone Picturesque it was almost perfect The way you were talking to me But now we’re strangers in the street You left under my skin Last time I let you in You left under my skin You had to say goodbye You ruined my day, so I will fuck with your life But death is for forever, so you will be alright And since death is for forever, then death do us part For once we speak the truth So darling, that’s a start

I hold myself up to more than I could ever be I sound so old you’d never guess that I’m still eighteen I guess all I need is a little more time I hate myself every time I get the chance to think It might surprise you, but it’s not often as you think It’s just things like these, they take a little more time But you tell me I’m perfect You say I’m everything you need and more What the hell are you thinking? I can’t change the world I can’t even get off the bathroom floor right now You’re making progress and it’s starting to be clear to see The fire’s burning and you’re lit up sitting next to me I guess you and I just need a little more time But when the smoke clears, I’m still hoping to find stable ground It’s hard to say I’ll still be here when you around All I wanted was just a little more time But you tell me I’m perfect You say I’m everything you need and more What the hell are you thinking? I can’t change the world I can’t even get off your bedroom floor And when the night is over I’m not sure where I’ll be I can’t believe I’m still sober I’m sorry you had to see this side of me But you tell me I’m perfect You say I’m everything you need and more What the hell are you thinking? I can’t change the world I can’t even get off your bedroom floor But you tell me I’m perfect You say I’m everything you need and more What the hell are you thinking? I can’t change the world I can’t even get off your bedroom floor And when the night is over I’m not sure where I’ll be I Can’t believe I’m still sober I’m sorry you had to see this side of me

She’s not worth your time in bed Especially when she’s thinking of his instead Too many wrongs won’t make this right She up and left you in plain sight We all deserve the love we give But you deserve so much more It’s just not fair the way life works Why do all the best ones have to hurt? The story goes you’re wasting your time And you know what you’re doing’s not right You kid yourself Take the advice that you gave, but you know It’s not love, at least not the first time Anything goes since you’ve crossed the starting line (I crossed the line too many times, I crossed the line too many) Don’t worry your secret’s safe with Everyone else, it’s too hard to fake it (We crossed the line too many times, we crossed the line) [VERSE 2] He’s not worth a second chance Or at the least another glance He’ll realize he did her wrong And rip apart her favorite swan song He doesn’t deserve her in the least I try to sell this all the time It makes me sick when he’s around I can’t believe she’s been so blind Sometimes I tell myself “You must’ve lost your mind” And sometimes I tell myself You’re the perfect tragedy

We say that we’ll change the world With peace, love, and alcohol Even though we’re sober, sheltered kids Our harmonies’ are out of key But we still build our symphonies We’ll sing to the masses, the ones with deaf ears We’re stuck with ourselves And our doppelgang-animals Kept at bay with our substances Our minds are detachable Our sex is too casual We hunt with the foxes and run with the hounds Here’s to the self-proclaimed psychiatrists And self-medicated pharmacists We’re not waging a war Unless it’s on our shallow minds And we’re not going home If we’re going home alone But we’re fine on our own As long as we don’t know the truth Of what separates me from you Too busy playing with cannabis To learn about your politics The notion of accolades kills our dreams A loss of intimacy In love with our pornography Turning our homes to reality shows If hell is just a pub crawl Then heaven has the last call And God is the bartender who serves our fate So fuck all of your beliefs This world loves its sodomy Take a bipolaroid and prove me wrong Here’s to the architects And demolition experts of my mind I never know which way to go As I try and walk myself back home So little time and so many open roads (And I’m just running along) (And we’re just running along)
