Shirtless, sheetless and sleepless on the edge of your queen-sized bed,
Last night I didn't wanna move you cause your tendons were tight,
You said I'd be the one you remember as self-obsessed,
'Cause every fucking word that I tell you is really self-addressed,
Sure you saw me naked but I never took my make-up off,
You don't need me, your girlfriend goes cognito no nose mustache on,
And plus my eyeballs occupy the sockets like a half-dead doll,
So maybe you could kill me off in one of your songs?
'Cause I'm not thrilled about anything,
I don't place bets on anything,
I'm not thrilled about anything...anything at all...

    General Commentyeah i'm pretty sure that every line after "you said i'd be the one you remember as self-obsessed" is what the girl is saying...

    General Commentsee i totally disagree,
    i feel like it's yoni talking about doseone or one of the other anticon guys
    because he specifically mentions "So maybe you could kill me off in one of your songs?" after the confusing girlfriend line.
    and i'm 99% sure this is from yoni's perspective because he mentions his "half-dead" eyeballs -- yoni has a lazy eye that he mentions in some of his other songs.

    definitely one of his more sincere sounding songs, which makes me want to believe it's about a strange relationship with another guy.

    My InterpretationPerhaps the not taking the make-up off line is metaphorical make-up. A guy's make-up is the... social wall one puts up with another person if they don't know them well enough to be totally comfortable.

    General CommentI love the line 'every fucking word that I tell you is really self-addressed'; it applies to several people I've had relationships with, and myself.

    The way apathy is portrayed in the last half of the song - I identify with that too :)
