This is what you get when you drag out a breakdown.
Wearing out your friends with old hopes and letdowns.
Your broken heart makes the most of your drunk mouth,
and once it starts, it goes til the sun's out.

Twisting your words with its cavalier daylight,
you feel more absurd for each confession in hindsight.
And you write every friend, apologize again,
and pace it out a neurotic mess...
wishing you knew what to fix.

This is what you get when you drag out a breakdown.
Lovers make you sick and zealots draw your worst out.
You're too old for love and god and bullshit,
but too young to ignore the way they flaunt it.

Always singing their songs, those lyrical abortions,
they dance all night long, no sense of importance,
while you choke on your hate, smoke out the taste,
and curse it all under your breath...
wishing you could be more like them.

Over and Over.

This is what you get when you drag out a breakdown.
An emotionless decent into shit-town,
and happiness comes and goes with the weather.
You'd fight for it if you didn't know better,

but it's easier to hide in every book you get your hands on
to get lost inside some well-written sitcom
but as you turn the last page, as the final scene plays,
you hurt like a lover bereft..
from your head to the heart in your chest.

Over and Over.
