about

I don't want to leave, but I feel like you're forcing me out. I refuse to be trampled on again (I'm not one of the those kids with a 'I refuse to sink' tattoo). This place isn't our home though, it's temporary. I can't sleep at night knowing that. Now that I look at it, everything in life is temporary. Youth, love, health, life itself is temporary. It's just about being ready for those transitions.

I wrote this song in a Real Friends t-shirt. I really feel like they accurately capture the sentiments I experience. Bony knees and sleepy eyes. Blegh!

Side note: This is honestly the Fight Like Men anthem.

lyrics

Ps, Sorry for the language, mom.

I wish the writings on the wall could speak.
They tell a story only you'd believe.
I'm trying to run away from the Mid West.
Tripped over my feet, maybe saying here is best.
I want to be where you are.

I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.
I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.
I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.
I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.

These small town structures, they don't brush shoulders.
I learn this everyday as I grow older
These small town structures, they don't brush shoulders.
I'll grow wiser until I move these boulders

I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.
I've got scars on my hands and knees.
I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.
I'm begging please, don't make me take this fall.
I'm not at all gonna take the fall for this shit.
No, not at all. Not at all.

It was not your fault, I overreacted.
Cigarette's burning its way through the mattress.
