Closest thing to The Fall I ever wrote in my life. I particularly like the cereal in the morning section. A very accurate representation of the high school growing pain years in a stream of consciousness style. References Steely Dan too!


another dream is killed
and the reality is near
say you tried but I don't see you
trying any harder than you did last year

a pair of skinny jeans can change your mind
a younger face lays out that plan
"pull apart this used-to feeling
and walk far from this" he said

"Isn't it obvious?" we both wished
shortcuts abound, sterile and found
everything is perfect and it still is
but I never seem to live in it

oh I feel that way so much
didn't want to wake up today
dim dark and old blue hues
slowly dropping off the ledges, if we meet...
and bitter pills to swallow
along my cereal wheat

Oh that cereal wheat
the only warm thing around
the thing I love to eat
because no one else is around
to make me breakfast
and I wish I could eat
without feeling like shit
when I wake up to go to class!

You say you know
where our problems go
It's really cute you think you know
where our problems go

You say you know
But you don't really know
It's cute you think you know
But I'm going to hell
(for all the little things I've done...and said...)

what a fool am I
to believe in change
to think of myself as an intellectual
but i'm not surprised, no!

mistakes are abound (You say you know)
my disappointment is well fueled (where our problems go)
well fueled... (it's cute you say you know)
????...measurements of... like gasoline...???? (but you don't know)

it can't be conveyed
Quite honestly, I wish we were intricate
I wish there was meaning
but so now what's left?
what's left of this?
will you tell me?

It would've been so much warmer if you really tried
she thought that I could tell
and I thought that I would be there
but isn't it obvious?
we both wished so long
and "so long" is what we'd say, the very next day

but I couldn't feel but say (You say you know)
that I was... truly alone (where our problems go)
Truly alone... (it's cute you say you know)
what else mattered anyway? (but you don't really know)

???????? (where our problems go)
???????? (it's cute you say you know)
regardless of what happened (but I'm going to hell)

regardless of anything...
uh, oh well...
but the girls don't seem to care tonight
as long as the mood is right
the mood isn't right though... it's actually really wrong...
