Album : Anthem (2003)


I've come to my senses that I've become senseless
I could give you lessons how to ruin your friendships
Every last conviction I smoked them all away
I've drank my frustrations, down the drain, out of the way

So I sit and wait and wonder,
Does anyone else feel like me
Someone so tired of their routines
And disappearing self esteems

I'll sing along with every emergency
Just sing along “I'm the king of catastrophes”
I'm so far gone that deep down inside I think
It's fine by me, I'm my own worst enemy

I could be an expert on codependency
I could write the best book on underage tragedy
I've been spending my time at the local liquor store
I've been sleeping nightly on my best friend's kitchen floor

So I sit and wait and wonder,
Does anyone else feel like me
I'm so overdosed on apathy
And burnt out on sympathy

I'll sing along with every emergency
Just sing along “I'm the king of catastrophes”
I'm so far gone that deep down inside I think
It's fine by me, I'm my own worst enemy

Let the meanings slip away
Lost my faith in another day
Self-deprecation seems okay
I never though I'd make it anyway

    It's about ruining your life, but it's the most upbeat song out there about that.
    The other day in i. T we were doing a survey to see which songs we had listened to last. They asked me and i said this song. Everyone was silent. No one knew this song, except from my teacher who started playing it. I knew all the words and everyone was looking at me weirdly.
    I think i was born in the wrong decade!
