"Standard Break" as written by and Derek R. Grant Daniel Michael Andriano....
I've got a regular problem
So my standard break from life is in order
I'm having trouble making sentences
I'm older but I don't feel any smarter
You see I don't know what I said to you
And now you're pissed at you know who
And I guess I deserve it
I wish I could waste my time without wasting all your time
I try to leave a good impression
But it's hard when my obsession's in a wine glass
And when you're only 23
It's not attractive to complain about your sore back
Yes I can bitch until my eyes are blue
And you're in bed with someone new
And I guess you deserve him
Wish I could waste my time without wasting all your time
You say I'm fixable
A classic case, lack of will
I say I don't want to try
I'd rather stay here all night

I've got a motivation problem
So my standard break from life is getting longer
Spent over 30 hours in this bed
In two days, I guess I could've phoned her
But now that I'm awake
I'd rather take a drink
And walk down to the lake
And beg the sky for lightning bolts
I can't waste my time without wasting all your time
You say it's fixable
A classic case, lack of will
I say I don't want to try
I'd rather sit here all night

    General Commentthis song is about wanting something but not having enough strength to try to get it. You know waht ylou want but you dont feel confident enough that you will get it. any difficulty and you have to take a break from life. and during that break you think about all your faults and how bad life is and how the person your stressing about dosnt deserve you. about breaking your ties with reality but not wanting your significant other to know how deep you hurt, and then in the end just saying fuck it about the relashionship beacuse its not worth it in the end and you might as well get drunk

    General CommentThis song isn't even titled correctly, what the hll is wrong with NihilisticFerret? Are you retarded?? This is so obviously not the title of the song. Wow, that's just plain pathetic, either way good song, I enjoy it a lot.

    General CommentI just love how he says that "you" are sayingc "its fixable, a classic case, lack of will", and then he proves the person perfectly correct by saying "I dont wanna try, Id rather sit here all night." It's cute.

    General CommentI can relate to the line about his sore back. I'm only 20 and i'm constantly bitching about how much my back aches.
    Also, i'm pretty sure it's 'pint glass', not 'wine glass'.

    General Commentstandard break from life being what else but alcohol. someone is tierd of his drinking habbits, and instead of trying to win them back, or stop them, he just drinks

    General CommentI don't like this song very much.
    The lyrics are all right, but they have ones that are WAY better and much richer with figurative language and such. Plus the way he sings reminds me of Blink182 or something.. I'm not digging it.
