What a strange time to get introspective
I’ve had the same headache for a long-ass time
Everything moves in different directions
Like you

When I’m here it seems justified
To hate someone and not know why
And you’re bothered by the awful things I do

But I didn’t as for you
To analyze my moral fiber
Everyone’s got ways that they’re impure
And just ‘cause I don’t claim
To live in someone else’s name
Doesn’t mean I don’t feel just like you

There’s a pharmacy in my head today
But the difference isn’t even tangible
I’m still spiteful, what can I say?
It’s nothing new

But when you talk like words off someone’s page
Integrity don’t come with age
And you’re bothered by the awful things I do

But don’t you ever think
With a mind like yours, set on grey-scale
It’s strange you’ve even kept me here this long?
Just imagine you’ve got five
And I can’t even count all mine
How’s that fucking ratio for you?

Sure it’s a strange time to get introspective
But when you live leaned up against the outside wall
Days like this just seem to collect up
It’s nothing new

But I’m sure you’ll read the instructions right
That tell you how to live your life
And you’ll be bothered by the awful things I do
