lyrics

I thought I hated myself but now more so everyone else
Cause my father figured his lies would get him through
The damage he swears no connection to
And so my father figure taught me a few things
When he saved me in the tenth grade
But all along was trying to fuck girls less than half his age
And there's two sides to the story or so I'm told
Mine reads fuck yourselves leave me alone

I thought I handled it well leaving it on the shelf
Just like my sister figured it better to do nothing
Rather than hope we'd be accepting
And like my mother figured silence was golden
Protecting us from all she was withholding
But that's not dealing with it, it's called avoidance
I'm taking this off the shelf to exploit it

I thought about walking out, but I've got more stories to tell
I bet you probably figured I'd be happy by now
Sorry here's one more sad song, Let's cry it out
And yeah I really figured I would have grown up
Left the band, picked a major, become an adult
But I got nothing figured out, doubt I ever will
So I may as well use up all this time to kill
