I sleep until there is no light.
I'm wide awake all through the night.
Diner may suck but I'll take a bite,
I do whatever I can.
My muscles stiffen through the day.
Discomfort never goes away.
I feel like a garbage can.
Throw me away,
I've got no use.
Throw me away,
I'm nothing to lose.
Throw me away,
I feel like shit.
I am useless.
I know I know nothing at all.
I'd take stand,
but I know I'd fall.
I'd run head-down into a wall and watch my blood run faster.
Girls laugh and pass me on the street.
I spook out everyone I meet.
I've got pink toenails on my feet,
I'm such a fucking master.
I never seem to feel well.
I always seem to look like hell.
It seems like everyone can tell my mind is going numb.
My mom thinks I wear women's clothes.
I get dogged on at all the shows.
It seems that everybody know I look like a fucking bum.

    General CommentRead some interviews people, Davey says its about how when he was a teenager he felt worthless and lazy cause' there was nothing to do out in Ukaih. but I can relate. You think he really painted his toenails pink? Poor Davey, bordum kills. -DRT-
