lyrics

Here's the good news: you were born in a first world country like America or Canada or France. You'll never go more than a day with real hunger, you'll never have a warlord conquer your whole neighborhood. You'll be fine. But here's the bad news: it never gets any better. You're just born, and you'll just live until you die. You'll never be the one to spark a revolution. You'll probably never even get over your depression. You'll be fine. So I'll make bad decisions tonight, and I'll pay for them tomorrow. But I will cause head-on collisions tonight, I am driving with a bottle and my headlights off. I wanna burn this bridge so fukken bad but I can't make it alone out here, so I'll just keep drinking everyday, until I don't have anything to fear on my own. I am aging, and I notice everyday just how much older I am looking in the mirror. Happiness can be so overwhelming. An overrated mess, why don't you tell me you'll be fine? He was murdered by a coward fukken cop, buckled up they shot him four times in the chest. Just two miles down from my front door. To every pig from here to Baltimore, not this time. So I'll make bad decisions tonight, and I'll pay for them tomorrow. But I will cause head-on collisions tonight, I am driving with a bottle and my headlights off. I wanna burn this bridge so fukken bad but I can't make it alone out here, so I'll just keep drinking everyday, until I don't have anything to fear on my own.
