Lyrics

I’ll start out fresh

A brand-new beginning

It goes like this, oh, I…

I never finish anything

And all of this was totally worthless

If I get through a week or two,

Or let's just say a year or so

Cuz that's the way these days

Just seem to go and go

And I just feel so helpless

Don’t tell me to "just calm down"

Now, there's a shortcut right under my skin

And all I want is to freak out

But my apologies are worn so thin

I’m sorry friend

With all these fucking problems I should pay you rent

Doors are open in the cellblock of my filthy head

And these days I’m smokeless

Don’t tell me to "just calm down"

Now, there's a shortcut right under my skin

And all I want is to freak out

But my apologies are worn so thin

Yeah that’s a quality I’ve worn so thin

When we empty out like paper cups

In a parking lot

It’s hard to feel like anything but garbage, wasted

Yeah we empty out

We empty out until there’s nothing left

Now there’s nothing left

Don’t tell me to "just calm down"

Now, there's a shortcut right under my skin

And all I want is to freak out

But my apologies are worn so thin

Yeah that’s a quality I’ve worn so thin
