I’ve been trying to let go of my grudges
All my vices and habits and crutches
But there doesn’t seem to be much left underneath

And I don’t hate you as much as I used to
That said, I can’t say I don’t want to
I always figured it was better you than me

And I’m not getting any younger
But I still feel like a kid
Naïve and only getting dumber
With no good excuse for the awful things I did

I’ve been trying to live like I’m dying
Laid up in bed cursing god and crying
I never said I didn’t want you to pity me

But I will stand up and move on
Until I find a new shoulder to cry on
I never said I was above cheap sympathy

And I’m not getting any younger
But I still feel like a kid
Naïve and only getting dumber
With no good excuse for the awful things I did

I set fire to the good things in my life
Now I’m trying to look on the bright side
But there’s nothing but a black cloud around me

Now I’m living each day like it’s my last
Trying to forget and regretting my past
I never learned a fucking thing from history

And I’m not getting any younger
But I still feel like a kid
Naïve and only getting dumber
With no good excuse for the awful things I did
And nothing to show for a life I’ve hardly lived
