After all those years of living in fear
I stopped worrying about the bomb or the other shoe dropping
After all those years worried for my life
I started to enjoy myself, I started to enjoy myself
And the only ones who have suffered from it
Have been the creditors and the landlords
And you know what? Fuck them
If they want an apology they can have it
For any inconvenience I might have caused
But the butterflies in my stomach have flown up through my throat
And learned to love the open air, the open air
Sorry guys, sit down and have a drink, but I'm not sorry

    I have that line tattooed on my ribs.

    Obviously about living life for yourself, doing what you want, and enjoying life

    General CommentI just finished my undergrad in college and now have to pay back approx. twenty thousand in debt, forced health care, rent, and insurance for a car. I have 2 jobs and I'm barely cutting it. It's scary, but truly, it doesn't really matter. I'm staying positive and not giving a fuck. Thanks, Terricloth. I think I'm going to forgo "expectations" and do exactly whatever the hell I want to do.

    This song is a reminder of just that. Should I be afraid?

    Never.
