Half a year and here you are again
I'd go out in public if nobody ever asked
I sit home and drink alone and hope that bottle speaks,
like you, like us, like me

Half a year again, now it's a whole
February stationery from you on the wall
And I sit home and plead the throne to speak to speak to me
to me, to me, hasn't said a single thing

You're probably too busy with your work
Or am I just excusing you for leaving me alone?
There's nothing in these wooden drawers to bring you back, or to keep me bored
I don't know what to do with me no more

Dear Everyone I Ever Really Knew, I acted like an asshole so I could keep my edge on you
Ended up abusing even those I thought immune
I killed the kingdom with one move and now it's time to move

Dear Everybody That Has Paid to See My Band, it's still confusing, we'll never understand
I acted like an asshole so my albums would never burn
But I'm hungry now, and the scraps are dirty dirt
I'm hungry now, it's in the scraps of dirty dirt

    My Opinion"Dear Everyone I Ever Really Knew, I acted like an asshole so I could keep my edge on you
    Ended up abusing even those I thought immune
    I killed the kingdom with one move and now it�s time to move"

    I dont think Ive ever heard lyrics that better describe so many things in 4 lines. From being an independent person, living for yourself, defensive mechanisms, or that transitional period in your life where you lose all your old friends and have to start again.
    I love this.

    General CommentThat last line makes me tear up every time. I want it back the way it was before I left it in ruin. Amazing.
