lyrics

Thirty-seven days ago I tried to plug myself into an electric outlet to see if it could recharge my batteries,
but nothing can anymore.
For thirty-seven minutes I swore that there’s no one left in this rathole town to talk to so I might as well tape my mouth shut.
but something’s gotta give
and I’ve found out that it can’t be me for too much longer and you know they’ll say that that’s okay with me
but I’d rather die in pieces than piece them together

Chorus:
What keeps me from staining these suburban streets? And even if I fall,
ya know I never let you fall as far as me
Beneath the cracked pavements of my parents’ driveway, I realize
that there’s nowhere left for me to go!

Whoaoooah for me to go

So write it on my headstone that being a winner doesn’t mean you’ve won
and even if I could do it again
I don’t wanna try anymore
There’s a difference between dying to live and living to die
and I’ve found that I can’t lie for too much longer

Did you get the wrong impression? believe me everybody that was never my intention
My shredded tongue is bitten bloody but I can’t staple my smile forever

Chorus

Bridge:
It will be the same without my skin and bones
And it will be the same, cuz ya know, we all die alone!
ooooooooooo whoaoooao whoaooowhoa ooo yeah
Buried under these suburban streets lies the lost boy I’d like to meet--
something tells me he lies dead right under my bare feet.

Chorus
