lyrics

I watched those beheading videos more times than I should’ve
All my high school friends are in jail for prostitution, car jacking or white-collar crime
My genitals feel increasingly insignificant
I’ve lost the key to the lockbox where I keep the true me
The closest thing to intimacy this week was a crowded subway car
My cousin Hannah isn’t the same since she came back from Birthright
The people at work don’t even know what a rave is
It’s not every night I weep as I masturbate, just most
I think we might be at war but I am not a hundred percent sure.
I told Ellen that Theo looks like he had a stroke and she didn’t think that was funny
Most disagree with my assertion that I don’t have a drinking problem
My mother said she’s accepted the fact she’ll die before I walk down the aisle

Sometimes I hope my son will decide he’s straight
I’ve accepted the fact that I am skinny fat
If I choke on this, how many days will it take ‘til they find me?
Every acceptance just feels like future rejection
My doctor says “hurry sickness” isn’t a real disease
I guess I’d leave me at the altar too
Guess maybe next year, I’ll try
I thought about doing something about climate change
Staff meetings make me sympathize with school shooters
The only person I spoke to today asked me if I wanted fries with that
I thought about doing something about climate change…

The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
The sadness sure gets me
