lyrics

It’s always cold as Hell
That connotation reverse just works so well
And I’ve been living these placeholder days
Like a robot, robotically, frighteningly close to the same way
I always kinda sorta expect-dreaded life would end up feeling like
Wake up do what’s absolutely necessary, then all I have to do is survive the night
All I have to do is survive

But that’s not meant to be an excuse
I did some shit that’s been hard to own up to
The shows and parties I’d avoid feeling freaked by
Throwing my whole fucking life into a blur
To clean up later

But I’m not gonna defend
Nights I don’t remember or ones I can’t forget
No, I’m not gonna defend
Or make excuses for acting like a shitty human
Just wanna sorry, it’s something on which I’m working
