It doesn't seem like much to scratch this itch
I do it to get by
It's just irrelevant
It's such a tiny price
But it's a bitch
My hand's are shaking
I would never dreamed
It'd come to this

The seconds on the clock are ticking past
At least I assume they are
The days just fly so fast
I sit inside this empty house
It gets harder every day
I'm lookin' for any way out

I'm trying to try
I'm trying to break
I'm trying to find a way not to feel so fake
But sometimes this life's more than I can take
I'm trying to speak
My words are all slurred
I'm feeling so weak
My vision has blurred away
And I'm trying to find a way back to yesterday

I sit here all alone up in my lab
I analyze and quantify the past
I bottle it en masse
It saves on laughing gas
But still I sit here and watch these seconds pass

But at least I'm trying to try
I'm trying to break
I'm trying to find a way not to feel so fake
But sometimes this life is more than I can take
I'm trying to speak
My words are all slurred
I'm feeling so weak
My vision has blurred away
I'm trying to find a way
In my mind
I'm trying to find a way
Back to yesterday
