All alone again
All alone again

I speak as if I've lived
One minute
With eyes not fixed upon this screen
Stalking the girls I could never fuck
I mean, their sluts, but it seems
I lack that luck

And I'm not the man to wash my hands
Home alone or acting like we hit it off
Cuz either way I'm just jerking someone off

Until we're dicks out and pissing
Until you leave town wishing
I won't be satisfied

Things are gonna be different now you'll see
And as for all the dirty laundry you've left me
It's getting aired and with heavy rotation
You'd better have a damn good explanation

You act as though you've lived
A lie because your tan's been overcooked
But I've been burned and burned (and burned and burned)

And now every single day I look more like my father
I've only got so many layers and its only getting hotter

Until we're dicks out and pissing
Until you leave town wishing
I won't be satisfied

Things are gonna be different now you'll see
And as for all the dirty laundry you've left me
It's getting aired and with heavy rotation
You'd better have a damn good explanation

I didn't mean to be so forward
But there are some things you should know

He loves you like a truck stop screw
"When we're alone he adores me"
You best get it straight, say it
"When we're both dressed you just bore me" 2x's

Things are gonna be different now you'll see
And as for all the dirty laundry you've left me
It's getting aired you'll see

Things are gonna be different now you'll see
And as for all the dirty laundry you've left me
It's getting aired and with heavy rotation
You'd better have a damn good explanation

    General Comment(I guess that’s luck)
    It seems I just lack that luck

    i mean they're sluts
    but it seems i like that look

    i mean, their sluts, but it appears i lack that luck

    and i'm not the man to wash my hands
    home alone or acting like we "hit it off"
    i think i have a problem and i know i lack decorum
    i mean, either way i'm just jerking someone off

    until we're dicks out and pissing
    i won't be satisfied
    until you've left town still wishing
    you hadn't confessed with pride

    oh you know what i mean now
    oh you know what i'm talkin 'bout

    things are gonna be different now you'll see
    and as for all the dirty laundry you've left me
    it's getting aired and with heavy rotation
    you'd better have a damn good explanation

    you act as though you've seen
    some bad times
    because your tan's been overcooked
    but i've been burned and burned (AND BURNED AND BURNED)
    set some goals and then deal with being overlooked

    and i'll be that guy, that makes you wonder why
    you went home alone last night
    because more people need to say no to you
    that bears repeating, more people should say no to you

    until we're dicks out and pissing
    i won't be satisfied
    until you've left town still wishing
    you hadn't confessed with pride

    oh you know what i mean now
    oh you know what i'm talkin 'bout

    things are gonna be different now you'll see
    and as for all the dirty laundry you've left me
    it's getting aired and with heavy rotation
    you'd better have a damn good explanation


    he loves you like a truckstop screw
    "but when we're alone he adores me"
    you best get it straight, say it!!
    "when we're both dressed you just bore me"

    i think i'll kill myself today
    cuz i'm just so whimsical that way

    General CommentThanks, some of the words changed but I tried.

    I guess it's about a lonely guy checking out girls on the internet after a failed relationship.

    General Commentokay, it is obviously "tad bit overcooked" you're really dumb if you think anything else.
