Well I, I've decided that I'm done
With amusement parks and cigarettes
Tennis courts, and bubble gum
And I, I'm not a fan of compromise
So I'm laying it to rest
Its epitaph will read "regret"
But I know that I'll half-ass an excuse
For the next person I meet who asks me
“What the hell is wrong with you?”

Because I, I'm a dweller in the past
My residence is permanent
My actions are in consequence
Of the things I've done
But I can't move on
I'm buried in what was
But don't get a heavy heart
You're not the first with a starring part
In the scenes that I play over in my mind
That I analyze and I try to change
Cause the important ones rarely go my way

So when I'm writing another song
And I'm trying to make it work
I'll think about how my favorite bands
Have already wrote these chords
But still I'll sing and still I'll write
Cause I've come to the conclusion
That with no guitar, I'll never win this fight

So consider this the anti-epiphany
Change will come, but I've known that all along
And consider me an exercise in redundancy
But my patience is wearing thin
I’ve got to get out of this state that I'm in
I think I'll help myself along
So I, I've decided that I am done.
