I'm gunna assume that my phone is broken,
Delivery reports have ruined my life.
Half a bowl of cereal's left me choking, choking on time.
My guitar is on the floor,
I think i'll leave it there where it belongs...
But i know if i get out of bed
I will trip on her neck and the comfort of hitting the floor- grows closer
Naked, boneless and fragile oh
Pick up the guitar and swing at my head
shatter my bones and leave me in a mess.
I will hang myself in the strings
I think i'm going to stay in today
Before something really bad happens,
I feel the nigga eyes statring... makes me want to rip off my skin...
sketchy motherfucker...
Take me to the great heights
Pull me by my neck to the higher levels.
You have your backup and i have my.....
But i'm, sorry i ignored you, why won't you help me
Why wont you do the work for me?

    he texted a girl he likes, and he knows she got the texts because of the delivery reports, but she didn't text him back... which ultimately makes him feel like shit.

    General Comment I enjoy this song.
    Ill give this thing a go "delivery reports have ruined mylife" hes finding it hard to communicate with others. I live in the worst suburb and get no reception on my mobile half my texts dont send haha.
    I honestly think this song is about the fear of rejection not as in going to pick up a hoozie but in society 'Sketchy motherfuckers's the word to 'sketch' means to draw something, as in a portrait it has to look like what you are drawing i.e drawing a bowl of fruit your not going to sketch it like picasso with triangles for oranges, the word sketch is in its pure form.

    'I feel the nigga eyes they staring' black people are the biggest racist of themselves judgmentive sons of bitches who expect you to behave like every ghetto ass 'baller' on the planet and even if you do they'll still judge you, never happy.

    'Why won't you do the work for me?' i cant figure that one out.

    magic song & i like how it translucence's into the next track.

    General CommentI figured it was maybe partially about getting writers block and 'wanting to hang himself in the strings' represents his frustration

    General Commentwell LSP is black and not a 'little british white boy' i htink song could be a bout racism beacuse the Nigga eyes atre at him make him want to rip of his skin

    it couls be about a girl who likes but doesn't like him becasue he is black and this gets him down and makes him miserable in everything he does

    General Commenti love how this little british white boy gets away with saying "nigga" and "sketchy motherfucker" yet still having a great song, so it doesn't even phase anyone.


    i think the last verse is more like..
    you have your backup, and i have my "i'm sorry i ignored you," "why won't you help me?" "why won't you do the work for me?"

    like, she has her own backup plan, but he's just left with questions at the end of it all.
    just my take, because i don't hear the 'but' before the 'i'm sorry'.
