just say the first thing i can think
and grab the first thing i can drink
and when it's gone i get distressed
run to the first arm that's outstretched
and then deny all of the rest
their good intentions don't mean shit to me

i don't wanna know
i don't wanna see my face
in the mirror it's a trick
that's not me
i'm not sick
i don't wanna go
i don't wanna find my way
other people are a place
where i go to escape

don't take the first deal that it makes
you can do better & remain yourself
if only just the skin
sometimes it's more than you can take
but when you're sure you can't endure
just hug the floor & take a breath again
