If I had a dollar bill for every time I've been wrong
I'd be a self-made millionaire and you'd still be gone
So hand me down my best dress shoes and my best dress shirt
'Cause I'm going out in style to cover the hurt
And all I want to do all day is spend it in bed
But that's bad for the body and even worse for my head
So I'll try and find a place where no one will ask me a thing
It'll help to forget and help me to sing

'Cause now I'm drunk again
The means to my end
And I'm scared of myself
Cause now it's the same the faces and names
And I'm scared of myself again

Have you ever wanted to wake up from your dreaming
Scared you so bad you couldn't control your heart or your breathing
Well walk out the door with me on the floor
You don't care how I'm feeling
I guess a weak and tired and frightened man is no longer appealing

Some people have a gift of reaching right into your soul
And finding the whole and making it bigger
Baby sometimes I think I catch ya crackin' cynical smiles
And in a short while you'll be my heart's grave digger
Well there's not much I can do
'Cause I'm at the mercy of you
So baby I guess we're through

'Cause now I'm drunk again
The means to my end
And I'm scared of myself
'Cause now it's the same the faces and names
And I'm scared of myself again
'Cause now it's all the same the faces and the names
So go walk out the door you don't believe me no more
And I'm scared of myself again

If I had a dollar bill for every time I been wrong
I'd be a self made millionaire and I wouldn't be singing

    General Commentyou cant just label anything thats sad to "emo". the difference is emo is 12 year old girls whining because their moms are so mean for making them clean their rooms.

    General CommentI don't think most people realize this but this wasn't even written by Aaron. It's solely Scott and I think it's what inspired him to form the littlest man band which follows this song's style more than rbf upbeat (but lyrically cynical) music.

    General CommentSo uh, who's the moron that thought this win was Aaron? Pfft. Little Scotty Klopfenstein fool. Anywhoosers, this song is badass, and it's Scotty's way of saying that he's done with alcohol. And now he's trying to stop smoking as well, because it apparently stunts your creativity, and he doesn't want that. (True story, he told me to my face)

    Anyways, epic song, hands down the best on the album, oh, and it was originally recorded by Scotty and Dan's other band, The Littlest Man Band on their album Better Book Ends. Check em out, they're great.
