Tiny machines will heal our bodies
And we'll never get sick
So my cough and cold will be something of ancient past
Then they'll vaccinate our emotions
And we'll never feel depressed
So my creeping sadness is something I will embrace

My stomach's in knots as I lay in my bedroom
And I send you this text message--
It's okay, um, we can always hang out in the future
I would fast-forward this moment by falling asleep until morning
But, damn, I have no success
As I lay awake and wait for your reply

This reminds me of the summer of 6th grade
Clumsy and quiet and my failed attempt made
My first crush, fall in love
A fistful of flowers I took from my neighbor's yard
And years from now, when they figure out
How to put our memories in projector screens
I'll call my friends up, have them over
And watch that sad scene awkward version of me

My stomach's in knots and I'm burnt out,
Calloused, broken, cheap, and I feel used
My stomach's in knots, I surrender

My stomach's in knots as I lay in my bedroom
And I send you this text message--
It's okay, um, we can always hang out in the future

Faulty wiring and short circuits
My synapses connect the dumbest of things
Like where you are is where you say, "I'm paranoid"
My heart's a factory that failed to receive the order from my brain
Sad, slowed down production, there's no solid reason to panic

My stomach's in knots as I lay in my bedroom
My stomach's in knots as I lay in my bedroom
And I send you this text message--
It's okay, um, we can always hang out in the future
It's okay, um, we can always hang out in the future
I would fast-forward this moment by falling asleep until morning
But, damn, I have no success
As I lay awake and wait for your reply
