The Flatliners – This Guy Reads From A Card lyrics

Looking at everything just out of focus as time grows far and old
Well, I'd like to call and say hello but all the numbers fell out of my telephone
Have you ever caught a man in a moment
Where you know you'd been yourself?
And he knows damn well you saw it
While your words sit on the fucking shelf

Well, I'd
Like to extend my
Deepest sympathies, apologies
Or any other prefix you'd prefer

And our lives become a laugh track on repeat
I'm living short 'cause I can barely breathe
Even with all the windows down

I keep falling on my hands and getting up
Masqued is how I want to live
Unsatisfied until I die
But one cold dark day you see
Just how ruthless life can be
With a lump in your throat and not a single friend in the fucking world but me

Yeah

They go to encourage me
Get away, little kid
We're making cheap conversation and selling it

If I could, I'd burn these words to the ground
Scatter the ashes and tap my foot to the desperation sound

I'm awaiting on the block to decide if you're wrong or if I'm right
You know those times will drag you down your fucking whole life

Still here waiting for an explanation as to how I let you down this time, but
I'll sit here wasting, thinking of ways to leave this town

Well, I'd
Like to extend my
Deepest sympathies, apologies
Or any other prefix you'd prefer

And our lives become a laugh track on repeat
I'm living short 'cause I can barely breathe
Even when I'm driving with every single window down

I'm driving all the windows down
Trying my hardest not to fucking drown
