The Front Bottoms – The Boredom Is The Reason I Started Swimming. It’s Also The Reason I Started Sinking lyrics

Foreign countries,
Hardwood floors and trying to sleep,
Foreign Languages,
On all three channels of TV.

I don't want no drama or baggage,
Don't tell me complicated stories
About who you used to be but are different
And it changes a person completely.

And I am not sure that I want
Any single part of this
Any single part of any of this shit.

'Cause everybody pays,
Everybody's head is in the news
You're part of a program.
Get with the program.

'Cause everybody comes and falls asleep,
And lies awake, pretends to be sleeping.
You're not even sleeping.
You're prob'ly even listening.

Keep it simple and honest,
Stop crying, you're an adult.
I could stand up, I could man up,
It's just so convenient to be fragile.

This pain is constant and sharp,
Watching the signals that you send.
I wanna feel lethal on the inside,
I wanna read American Psycho again.

But I am not sure that I want
Any single part of this
Any single part of any of this shit.

'Cause everybody pays,
Yeah, everybody's head is in the news
You're part of a program.
Get with the program.

'Cause everybody comes and falls asleep,
And lies awake, pretends to be sleeping.
You're not even sleeping.
You're prob'ly even listening.
You're not even sleeping.
You're prob'ly even listening, even listening.

'Cause everybody pays,
Yeah, everybody's head is in the news
You're part of a program.
Get with the program.

'Cause everybody comes and falls asleep,
And lies awake, pretends to be sleeping.
You're not even sleeping.
You're prob'ly even listening.
You're not even sleeping.
You're prob'ly even listening, even listening to me.
