lyrics

can of worms and we all wanna hook one out
stuck in bed while the diplomats dance around
you could never love me
you hate me
i was never loving
just lately

lately i can't stand the sight of you

slouching around
no sweat on my brow

can of worms it's your old bad habits

summer's a cave
i barely escaped

can of worms do you think we're happy

this door is a wall
if i don't turn the knob

how could i get out of my self-medicated brand of bliss?
the sun is out, the shades are down
yeah i hate this

+++

can of worms and we all wanna hook one out
stuck in bed while the diplomats dance around
i could never finish
what i meant to
i doubt i'll even make it
to the end of this sentence

lately i just can't control myself

slouching around
no sweat on my brow

can of worms it's your old bad habits

summer's a cave
i barely escaped

can of worms do you think we're happy

this door is a wall
if we don't turn the knob

how could i get out of my self-medicated kind of bliss?
it keeps me good for about 10 seconds
sun is out, shades are down

+++

i could never admit
all of the dreams i've ditched just to sleep another hour
all of the trains i've missed just to watch 'em go by

+++

how can we ring out our time
when distraction's all that will fill us
sparrows take to the sky
but we watch through window panes
forget your pistols and knives
it's this philosophy that will kill us
raised to live inside our heads
but now i want out
