I wonder why I bother getting out of bed
I've got this point of view I borrowed from a friend
He knows how hard it is to make up your own mind
So if he wants to do it for me that's just fine

It's easy when you realize
You're nothing, you're nothing
It's easy when you realize

I wonder why I bother going out at all
I have this room that's got no windows, only walls
It gets so dark inside I lose track of the time
So if I sleep and I don't wake up, I don't mind

It's easy when you realize
You're nothing, you're nothing
It's easy when you realize

Trying to sleep but I always wake up
Haven't seen you for weeks maybe we should break up
Baby don't ask why
Baby don't ask why
Please don't ask why
I think it's time we said goodbye
oh....

Lying here on the floor I can't stand, I'm too weak
I don't dream anymore, there's monsters haunting my sleep
Put a lock on the door to try to keep them outside
But they're in my head I don't know where I can hide
So I'm talking to them 'cause I lost all my friends
I never get what I want so I'll get drunk again
I don't wanna feel anymore 'cause I only feel pain
Put my thoughts in the sink and watch them go down the drain

Lie down to sleep but I might stop breathing
My heartbeat's so weak I'm so scared of leaving
I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die
Too fucking young to say goodbye

    General CommentThis song is about someone who is completely hopeless, who lies in his room all day, in complete isolation, drinking and thinking and staring at the shadows sleeping on the walls, no windows. This song was very poignant at a time when I felt very much the same, though I was underage so not so much alcohol and I didn't have a girlfriend who I hadn't seen in weeks.
