George Salazar – Michael In The Bathroom lyrics

I am hanging in the bathroom at the biggest party of the fall
I could stay right here or disappear, and nobody'd even notice at all
I’m a creeper in a bathroom 'cause my buddy kinda left me alone
But I’d rather fake pee than stand awkwardly or pretend to check a text on my phone

Everything felt fine, when I was half of a pair
Now through no fault of mine, there’s no other half there

Now I’m just Michael in the bathroom
Michael in the bathroom at a party
Forget how long it’s been
I’m just Michael in the bathroom
Michael in the bathroom at a party
No, you can’t come in
I’m waiting it out till it’s time to leave
And picking at grout as I softly grieve
I’m just Michael who you don’t know, Michael flying solo
Michael in the bathroom by himself
All by himself

I am hiding but he’s out there, just ignoring all our history
Memories get erased and I’ll get replaced with a newer cooler version of me
And I hear a drunk girl, sing along to Whitney through the door
“I wanna dance with somebody! ”
And my feelings sink cause it makes me think: now there’s no one to make fun of drunk girls with anymore

Now it’s just Michael in the bathroom
Michael in the bathroom at a party
I half regret the beers
Michael in the bathroom
Michael in the bathroom at a party
As I choke back the tears
I’ll wait as long as I need, till my face is dry
Or I’ll just blame it on weed or something in my eye
I’m just Michael who you don’t know, Michael flying solo
Michael in the bathroom by himself

Knock knock knock knock
They’re gonna start to shout soon
Knock knock knock knock
Aw hell yeah, I’ll be out soon
Knock knock knock knock
It sucks you left me here alone
Knock knock knock knock
Here in this teenage battle zone
Clang clang clang clang
I feel the pressure blowing up
Bang bang bang bang
My big mistake was showing up
Splash splash splash splash
I throw some water in my face
And I am in a better place
I go to open up the door, but I can't hear knocking anymore

I can’t help but yearn
For a different time
And then I look in the mirror and the present is clearer
And there’s no denying, I’m just...
At a party, is there a sadder sight than
Hmmmm Michael in the bathroom at a party, this is a heinous night
I wish I stayed at home in bed watching cable porn
Or wish I off’ed myself instead, wish I was never born
I’m just Michael who’s a loner so he must be a stoner
Rides a PT Cruiser, God he’s such a loser
Michael flying solo, who you think that you know
Michael in the bathroom by himself
All by himself
All by himself

All you know about me is my name
Awesome party I’m so glad I came

    This song is about feeling like a friend you once had has completely abandoned you. It is also about anxiety and feeling alone, or like nobody would notice if you disappeared into thin air. It has a certain feel, like it's supposed to help people stop feeling like they're all alone, because you are only truly alone if you believe you are. Michael In the Bathroom is an expression of what it feels like to be abandoned by your best friend or a close group of friends. Michael was all alone at a party where he is clearly uncomfortable and decided to seek refuge in a bathroom than just stand awkwardly on his phone. This is a reference to life on multiple levels. Picture this: your best friend since kindergarten just left you for the popular crowd. What would you be feeling? This song perfectly describes the feeling of being completely alone.
