I swear I'm a zombie,

as I stumble through each day,

my brain is a bastard 

and my body is a slave

 

I swear I'm a junkie

To the governments delight

my mind is a prison

and my body is a pipe

 

I could swap my strings 

with razor blades

to get me out the house today

I could call my friends and fake the night

I could kick the habit, yeah fucking right

when will I learn

time can't be returned

every time I get the chance to shine I burn

 

I'm too tired to wake up,

too awake to sit still,

I'm a straight, white, male

so how can I be ill

and I don't know the problem

but it's somewhere in my blood

when all I really need

is to learn how to be loved. 

 

I could swap my strings 

with razor blades

to get me out the house today

I could call my friends and fake the night

I could kick the habit, yeah fucking right

when will I learn

time can't be returned

every time I get the chance to shine I burn

 

I burn like the sun,

I swear it's gonna come,

I burn like the sun,

while everybody's young
