considering the pain you bring
with every memory
i am alive and reconsidering
every little thing
just like the faded folded photograph
that haunts me in my dreams
i've got this funny fucked up feeling
that you're nothing like you seem
so won't you think of me in the silent moment
before you go to sleep
because i think of you with memories stolen
i want to lock you up
and keep you safe from harm
just out of reach
tucked away hidden and underneath

and i can't help but be this way
but i am changing every day
and the harder that it seems
it just grows that much more important to me

considering the scene you're in
white belts and black jackets
bandannas peering out of back pockets
cigarettes and sunglasses
you've got your attitudes and your alcohol
won't sleep alone tonight
i'd rather be alone than lonely
with you anti-socialites
i miss my dog
and that big blue van
and i hate all your friends
you love your scene so much so keep all that

and i can't help but be this way
but i am changing every day
and the harder that it seems
it just grows that much more import to me

i've got this little idea
to list my demands right here
for all the world to see
just to proclaimate them
and encapsulate them
may be all the help i need

so here goes...

not to be so negative
not so argumentative
not to be possessive
and not to be so aggressive
not to be judgmental
and not to be so serious
not to have this cloud
hanging over my head
and not to be so lonely
i've got to snap out of this
not to be a liar
and not to be so cynical

i've no control

and i can't help but be this way
but i am changing every day
and the harder that it seems
it just grows that much more
important to me
