Smashed out the windows in my room
Taped up the broken glass, I’m taping up myself too
Cracked all my records, put fists through walls
Flipped all bookcases, now I’ve got room to grow

Living life for the mystery, I’m just like you, I’m just like you
Trying so hard to cut free, I’m just like you, I’m just like you
I’ve been feeling so low, I’m just like you, I’m just like you
Like I’ve got no place left to go, I’m just like you, I’m just like you

If this is it, then I fucking quit

When you feel like you’re going nowhere, understand that I’m going nowhere too
When you feel like your ship is sailing, sometimes, I feel the same way too
Just like you

Months turn into years turn into decades

Did you know? Did you think that?
You would hit the wall so soon?

Oh how the years, slip by
