Track Name: Nobody's Business
I'm having a panic attack
driving home from a show
while "I Will Remember You"
by Sarah McLachlan
is playing on the radio
then you looked at me
and said "your mood lately's
been less than groovy"
okay that's not exactly
what you said maybe
but I heard you baby

and I won't make it if I try
no I have fallen down by the wayside
I think it's inevitable now I die
cuz I've been wasting time
like it's nobody's business

can't you see
you're better off alone
than you are with me
I'm insecure unstable
and barely sweet
and I don't even practice
what I preach to you
don't make excuses baby
I'm just a fool
I'm better off alone
just listening to Tool
can't you tell we're so doomed

and I won't make it if I try
no I have fallen down by the wayside
I think it's inevitable now I die
cuz I've been wasting time
like it's nobody's business
and I've finally earned death

you said "baby come and talk to me"
but you were never really listening
you said "come on baby, don't try to hide it"
I just saw a red flag and I kept trying to fight it
you said "baby come and talk to me"
but you were never really listening
no you were never really listening
Track Name: The Best Sleep
I always got the best sleep
in the passenger's seat of your SUV
on highway 17, on I-40, or the 133
and you always preferred driving
when you were high
and I didn't mind
cuz at least you were a nice guy
back in 2012 when we were bored as hell
but it's not like that now

cuz in my dreams
I'm losing teeth
and as a result it seems
i'm losing sleep
I've got deep hatred for
my anxiety
stemming from all the time
I've wasted on you and me

"Easy/Lucky/Free" was my favorite song
when I was just 16 and thought
that you could do no wrong
but boy I was so wrong
now I'm 24 and god forbid I want more
than what you're giving to me
than what you buy at the store
I want nice biceps
and a good broad chest
I don't want no regrets

could it be that I am finally moving on?
and pretty soon I won't feel like
every choice I make is wrong
focusing on the things I want/ need to have
like a lover with brains
and a new cool butt to grab
