I did not go outside today
It's just as well my desk is by the window
So I can tell if there's anything I'm missing
There is not
There is not

I did not think that I'd be in this place
If you'd asked me. No one asked you
But I am so there's no reason to believe
I'm different than 2000 of me
I am not
But I want

The things I want are simple things
Like love and trust and sanity
And I am on my way
What holds me back are awful things
Like apathy and lack of sleep
Sometimes I can't catch my breath
So I sit with confidence
Because it's easy

Thou shalt not covet what thy neighbor's got
But my god is a jealous god
What he wants is what his neighbor's got
What I want
What I want

The things I want are simple things
Like love and trust and sanity
They are not out of reach
What holds me back are awful things
Like apathy and lack of sleep

Sometimes my throat gets so sore
That I don't want to talk anymore
Sometimes I can't catch my breath
And my heart is beating wildly; I can feel it through my chest
Sometimes I smell the scent of blood
It's pumping overtime to try to keep up
Sometimes I swear I see
People shift across a room there's no one in but me
Sometimes I taste defeat
So I force my tongue as far as it will go into my cheek
