lyrics

I've been waking up sick
I can't seem to get over it and
I've picked up this habit of
Making you feel like shit
When I quote "Hideous Men"
You tell me I'm not sensitive, but
I said that it's messed up
You know that thing with the Challenger

I've got this nightly routine
Walking 'round parking lots screaming
Looking for anything, yelling your name
and words like "fight me"
I got so nervous and I've been so sick of feeling lonely
I've been walking in places I shouldn't
And digging up tragedy

I had this wild idea that I might find poetry
In your back yard or locked cars
Or these tax forms addressed to me, but
I've been coming up blank
Except for some words that you sent, but
The post office burned down and it took your letters

I've got this nightly routine
Walking 'round parking lots screaming
Looking for anything, yelling your name
and words like "fight me"
I got so nervous and I've been so sick of feeling lonely
I've been walking in places I shouldn't
And digging up tragedy

Well you dug up some dead dandelions
And you threw them into a vase
And it felt like something else leaving
Another thing you couldn't save
And it feels like some kind of curse
Like saying the right thing at the wrong time
When you're next to me I get paranoid
I slept on the wrong side last night

I've got this nightly routine
Walking 'round parking lots screaming
Looking for anything, yelling your name
and words like "fight me"
I got so nervous and I've been so sick of feeling lonely
I've been walking in places I shouldn't
And digging up tragedy

I wrote a song once about a car crash and having too many teeth and I guess it just stuck.
