lyrics

3AM, and I ain't even started this,
Somebody tell me where this evening's after party is
I need somewhere new to use, where I can be ejected from
Some new people with new toes for stepping on
But for now, I'm doing shots until the bar is dry
The game is on, I top the leader board because I started high
I'm going in, I'm going in until I pass out
I'm down to fuck up my life, I might as well start now.
So where's that girl from work who's single cos' she's been hurt,
I'm trying to use her self esteem to see what's underneath her shirt.
She told me "do what people our age are doing"
So I'm acting like the next man, now everybody screwing
And they say it don't suit me - please, just shoot me,
For wanting something easy, something raw, something sushi
I'm making plans I never plan on seeing through,
Ain't that me through and through? Weren't that me when it was me and you?

Nasty manipulator. Chronic pisstaker. Damaging embarrassment who vomits on his fifth jaeger
I lost my mind in a night club bathroom
Haven't learned a lesson since I left my last classroom
Causing scenes, acting up in all directions
Missing my marks like rhetorical questions
It's hard to know if anybody really gives a damn
When all they've got to offer me is boxes of citalopram
But I ain't take em because they fuck up my high
And I ain't talking cos you'll fuck up my high
So let's go and get lost in a house share
Phone it in, call it on, tell em that we're downstairs
If the phones off, then pass me another bottle
Don't ask me when I'll be stopping, it's hard to be this dishonest
I'm just tryna go strong, go for broke till I stop
Like the time I was so gone, I did coke with my boss
Distorted debauchery minus the extravagance
Extorting me for more, I'm trying not to but she's adamant
Girls who only stay until the mirrors wiped clean
I've been told it's too far and i'm scared that it might be.
It's likely. It's frightening. Na, they just saying that to spite me
I feel like being myself might break me
Trust me - it's much easier when you hate me
