about

I wrote this song the day I went to see a house show down near Coney Island and the entire night felt very surreal and I remember panicking and then leaving very early because I had a panic attack. 2nd verse refers to my daily bike rides I like to enjoy and trying to stay in shape as a constant struggle.

lyrics

I'm trying to think from a new point of view
I'm still coming to grips with all the shit i've been through
Know its hard to change but I'm willing damnit
This entire year is all fucked and its going to waste

I did it again
Stopped listening to my friends
And I won't hear the end of it
Because I gave up and I dropped out and quit

Started drinking about an hour ago
About 3 beers in and I've got a long way to go
I'm still sober because I'm taking it slow
About 3 beers in and I've got a long way to go

Oh woah oh oh oh oh
Oh woah oh oh

Have a lot of trouble setting limits
I rode my bike for hours so now I'm burnt to a crisp
Trying to stay in shape for whatever reason and
I want to be outside because summer is the season

Well those dreams aren't dead
But can't take back anything I said
And they will hear the end of it
Because they all dropped out and quit

Started drinkin two hours ago
About 5 beers in and I've got a long way to go
(Unintelligible) some girl that I don't even know
About 5 beers in and I've got a long way to go

Oh woah oh oh oh oh
Oh woah oh oh

Now tell me who cares that I shaved this week?

and who cares that I brush my teeth?

and who cares that I'm always alone?

and who cares that I'm stranded here at home?
