lyrics

I’ve got a belly full of coffee, and my goals are maybe lofty
Maybe not so far from where i wanna be
i wanna make a lot of money, making music, making love
me, i’m just cruisin’, boozin’ ‘til i fall asleep

I’ve got a heart that’s full of holes and although i’m often told
to take the life i’ve got and live it gracefully
i always start to feel the guilt and i can’t help but feel a chill
that blankets never kill, until i fall asleep

until i fall asleep i’m dreaming awake
no faith to light forsaken ways
until i fall asleep i grieve the mistakes
i’ve made until i fall asleep

I’ve got a mind exploding with creativity and masochism
Maybe not so far from where i wanna be
am i fine with getting by on my privilege and narcissism
maybe i’ll cry until i fall asleep

and will i feel okay if i spare a cigarette
or a dollar bag of pretzels to a man without a home
i mean as far as random acts of kindness
i’m rolling my blind blue eyes
just trying to feel a little less alone

cause i know my karma’s down the fucking drain
and despite my fickly, sickly brain
i know i’ve hurt the people i’ve loved
and they drone that sorry’s gonna heal the pain
but i know in an intimate way
that it won’t fix the people i loved

i’ve got a belly full of coffee and my goals are maybe lofty
maybe i’m not so sure where i’m gonna be
because i’ve hurt a lot of friends, whom i then never saw again
until the sacred nights when i fall asleep

until i fall asleep i dream awake
feel shame for so-called forgiven pains
until i fall asleep i feel so unsafe
lying alone, until i fall asleep
