Seventeen seconds and I'm over it
Ready for the disconnect
Putting on a brave face
Trying not to listen
To the voices in the back of my head

(But it's alright now)
It's a distant memory baby
(It's alright now)
You know you should just let it go

But some feelings
Have a habit of persisting
Even though you
Wouldn't let it show

Wearing me out
(All this)
Hanging around
(It just starts)
Getting me down
(Till I'm just)
Looking for an easy way out

Braindead from boredom
I'm led to distraction
Scratching the surface of life

Nothing really happens
But it's easy to keep busy
When you tell yourself you're traveling right

(But it's alright now)
Was it really worth it baby?
(It's alright now)
Was it just a waste of time?

Keep on second-guessing
Using my memory
Like a weapon
On everything I try

Wearing me out
(All this)
Hanging around
(It just starts)
Getting me down
(Till I'm just)
Looking for an easy way out

Wearing me out
(All this)
Hanging around
(It just starts)
Getting me down
(Till I'm just)
Looking for an easy way out
