You left me so poor I couldn't pay to play
I filled my head with what I could to make it go away
Tears eventually cake up, inevitable break-up
Laying in bed for days and you wake up
I feel the strain, am I sane or am I just not gonna heal?
I'm just as sick in the rain and found Agent trying to rebuild
Wanted demented bliss, created something to miss
I know I stormed until now, but I'm not running from this

You started shrinking when my head fell apart
You slipped away
Next time you see me you'll know how small you are
And now it's over, over, over
Going over your head
It's really over, over, over
Never hold you again

You don't think that I get it?
I was the one who let it
Fall apart into pieces
You cut your foot when you jetted
Just swimming around in my head
Not slowing down, you said
All you need to say
You can share it with the dude in your bed
You did your crying career and started climbing
I thought it could be forever
Now on all my records you're dying
I got a lot of rest at last
Just let the world go past
Just let it go empty
I guess we just ran out of gas

You started shrinking when my head fell apart
You slipped away
Next time you see me you'll know how small you are
And now it's over, over, over
Going over your head
It's really over, over, over
Never hold you again

And I guess I get
sold out of what I had
Just really wasn't your bag
some lunatic that reminds you of your dad
I get it, you were slipping from my grasp
I just didn't get out fast
You were jumping to the future from my past
In a flash, you were the one who erased it
I hope my replacement gives me time back I wasted
You knew it was so hard to see my brother die
so pardon me, you just depart from me
You ruined art for me...

You started shrinking when my head fell apart
You slipped away
Next time you see me you'll know how small you are
And now it's over, over, over
Going over your head
It's really over, over, over
Never hold you again

    Lyric CorrectionYeah, I think "Just really wasn't your bag" is really "This really wasn't your bad." I'm not 100% sure, though.
