Wake up at 7am, stay in bed until 10.
Been almost two months now since you slept in,
but you've got the day off from work today.
Too many things to do today.

Like shave and shower,
use sprays and powders.
Make yourself breakfast and just sit for an hour.
Think of all the roads that lead away from home
if you'd just take them once in awhile.

Sit in your apartment alone,
keep the lights down low.
Don't you dare answer your phone.
You know it's work calling you, wanting you to fill in.
Everyone is sick again.

But you've got the day off from work today.
Too many things to do today.

Cancel tour. Stay in town. Gain 10 pounds.
Waste your life worrying while still sticking around.
Hate your job, but never quit. Let yourself feel like shit.
Make a list of everyone you're losing touch with.

Hit the gym, hang with Erin and Kim.
Visit your parents, pay off debts. You have to make rent.
Listen to your records, screaming "This should be me!"
Try to make connections kid, because your youth is fleeting.

These days it seems like if I'm not working,
then I'm probably drinking or dreaming of you.
These days it seems like I can't do anything
except write stupid songs about you.
