They call these states united
I'm isolated from the rest
Might as well call this state "catatonic"
It's keeping me depressed

And all my friends back home are busy living out their lives
A life I should have had, a life of which I've been deprived
This overcast's reminded me before (a million times, it's told me)
That I don't live in the sunshine state anymore

So, I'll sing into the sun until it sets, and I'll shelter no regrets
When i leave this hell, I'm headed for a place that I'll call home
And it doesn't matter who will miss me when I'm gone
Cause in spite of it all, I've never felt so alone

I've hit a social crisis, I can't pretend that it's alright
It's a problem when I write this down at 3 o'clock at night
It's sad enough to say that my best friends are on the Net
A net to catch me safely when I fall
But when I'm the sweetest, nicest senior guy these local girls have met
It's worse to say they don't know me at all

So, I'll sing into the sun until it sets, and I'll shelter no regrets
When i leave this hell, I'm headed for a place that I'll call home
And it doesn't matter who will miss me when I'm gone
Cause in spite of it all, I've never felt so alone

You might think I'm crazy
But my dreams, they keep me sane in a place that's so inane
That the locals have no sense of direction
And I don't need a compass, cause the only way is out

Check my vital signs, I'm living in a blank computer screen
Well, this self-incarceration is how I made it through the year
It might sound masochistic, but it's nonetheless serene
When compared to the pretentious mess of people living here

So, stop me when I've said enough, and I'll be on my way
You'll be drowning in this standing water until you do the same
And I'll tell the world I finally made it out alive
Good riddance to the hell I left behind
Good luck to my friends as I wave goodbye
