A thousand miles from Indiana
But I'm not moving, I'm not leaving
A thousand miles from who I want to be
But I'm not dead yet, I'm still breathing

And patiently, I exist

You stand out in a crowd
But I want you dead, I'm not you yet
You've got friends, you're great with them
But I'm not dead yet, I'm still breathing

Patiently and with certainty, I wish

It just isn't right
The time of your life spent
Right where you want to be
Impatiently

And you just talk
But you don't stop
But I'm not dead yet, I'm still breathing
Patiently and with certainty

It just isn't right
The time of your life spent
Right where you want to be

Providing for mouths, pursuing a family
Right where she wants you to be
Resigned to these histories, we exist

    General Commentit seems a lot of rk's songs as of recent are about living a life you don't want to, or a life you thought you wanted to but find meaningless now.

    "You stand out in a crowd
    But I want you dead; I'm not you yet.
    You've got friends, you create with them.
    But I'm not dead yet, I'm still breathing."

    i think is those lyrics, jenny (or blake, whoever wrote the song) is talking about someone who is doing what they want and having no regrets about their life and is making good friends and living to the fullest, etc etc, and the writer is jealous of them.
