When I was young,
I didn't want to live long.
But now I feel dumb.
I feel like it's all gone.

And I don't believe,
What's killing me.
Cause I am already dead.
In my head.

I'm a dreamer,
Who can't seem to sleep.
Yes, I'm a demon who prays when he weeps.
I give up my pride in a second for foresight.
But I've got no alibi, I realize.
Here is my life.

Filling my cup,
With wine makes the brain stop.
Cause being fucked up when you're fucked up makes sense, now.
And I don't believe,
What's killing me.
Cause I have already died.
Here's my life

I'm a dreamer,
Who can't seem to sleep.
Yes, I'm a demon who prays when he weeps.
I give up my pride in a second for foresight.
But I've got no alibi, I realize.
Here is my life.

    General Commentthis song can mean so many different things to different people. To me, it is about being dissatisfied with life no matter how many blessings it hands you. It's that constant feeling of wanting more out of life that a lot of musicians feel. To me, the best sad songs are teetering on the level of hopeful. This song does such a great job of it. The way it is in a major key and ends verse phrases on a minor chord creates that sense of faded hope that I just ADORE. God Dan, stop being so good!
