I am nothing but a shell of the man I once was
I was in shape then
Where you could have deep sea fishing for compliments
Now all you get is the boot
Now we're both struggling to win this tug of war of the worlds
And I'm tryin to figure out ways to have comfortably survive outside your element
I dabbled in watered down thoughts that filtered in from the main stream
from exposure to the types of things that won't necessarily make you happier
And I can feel myself getting lured into deeper oceans of ??
A sanitized safe-haven where you could face Satan and have his faith straightened
They'd swashbuckle with their pitchforks
For relief they be like "bitch walk"
Writing suicide notes with invisible ink on transparences
Strangely enough, while bringing back the real
I'm not saying you're overly naive
Fortunate for you I'm compassionate enough to throw back what I catch
Though I'm remorseful of the pain I've caused you
I sympathize with the sorrow by stroking the scar
Say I know exactly what you mean when you say it hurts too much to talk
No matter how much distance I kept or how long I waited for my wounds to heal
So I sued time for malpractice
Instead of seeing things clearly, they're pitched red
"There are more fish in the sea
Whether you listen to me or hear me not
But fear not, I'd never sink as low as to make my ears pop
And you don't need me meddling, sending sonar signals
But ripples are only caused when you cast stones

Guy: "No you won't, cause this is for the girl who loves me
I just wanted you to know you'd be missing
You think I'm not "hip", you think I'm pathetic
Well you're wrong, cause I'm champagne
You, not me, will always be shit"
