Call it masochism
Or better yet don't call
I made you my religion
But I'm losing faith in god

Cause I'm in need of answers
For these self-important questions
Like why I keep up patterns
When I should be moving forward
I'm making excuses
For this awkward downward spiral
Of kisses and curses
But mostly just denial

I'm filling up my gas tank
I've got borderlines to cross
You'll wake up in Septemeber
But by August I'll be gone
I've got a future I'm not sure of
In a place colder than this
A toast to new experience
We'll seal it with a kiss

Cause I'm in need of answers
For these self-important questions
Like why I keep up patterns
When I should be moving forward
I'm making excuses
For this awkward downward spiral
Of kisses and curses
But mostly just denial

If you had a nickel
For every time you asked what's wrong and I didn't say a word
You could buy that ticket
You could come up here and visit
We could pretend that nothing went wrong

I keep making decisions
That only bring me backwards
And in the heat of any moment
I can never count on my nerves
And my vocabulary
Only has the wrong words
To deliver that one punchline
I'm done and this is absurd

A song's a great excuse
For an awkward downward spiral
A song's a great excuse
For a life lived in denial
