"21" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli/schmutz....
I've been trying to write it off
But I'm doing all I can
To take the slur out of my words
You do your best to understand

I'm keeping you in mind
But I'm getting out of hand
Pour the medicine that keeps me right
Is settling
I get so easily distracted

[Chorus]
It's 7 and I'm already wasted
I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?
It's 7 and I'm already wasted
I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
What am I gonna

I'm gonna stand up and brush it off
And I'll become a better man
I've been trying to explain myself
But no one understands

I'm getting out of line
But I'm keeping all my plans
My movements and my messages are all I said
But my constant contradictions

[Chorus]

What do you do here in the moment?
What do you say?
What do you do?
What do you need?

[Chorus x3]

    General CommentCorrected some parts; still some parts aren't clear.
    ----------

    I've been trying to write it off
    But I'm doing all I can
    To take the slur out of my words
    You do your best to understand
    I'm keeping you in mind
    But I'm getting out of hand
    Pour the medicine that keeps me right
    Is it settling?
    I can't be so (?)

    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?
    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna...

    I'm gonna stand up and brush it off
    And I'll become a better man
    I've been trying to explain myself
    But no one understands
    I'm getting out of line
    But I'm keeping all my plans
    My movements and my messages are all I said
    But my consience contradictions (?)

    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?
    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna say?

    What do you do here in the moment?
    What do you say?
    What do you do?
    What do you need?

    7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?
    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?

    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?

    It's 7 and I'm already wasted
    I'm 21 and I'm already hazy
    What am I gonna, what am I gonna do?

    General CommentWell, I think I figured out the one question mark I placed.

    But my consience contradictions (?)
    should be
    But my con said contradictions

    Con would be used in the form of;
    an argument opposed to a proposal

    General Commenti think that the part at the end of the first verse hes saying
    "I can't be selfly destructed"
    i dunno? maybe

    General CommentI'm not going to make any more corrections to the lyrics until the album comes out and I can see the actual lyrics in the album sleeve.
