Just For Today

  • Honestly, I didn't think I'd end up here
    This time
    Or anywhere at all
    I'm distant just enough to never fall behind

    Picturing the saddest scene
    Of wearing bed sheets
    And two pats on the back "it just takes time"
    It's getting late
    Since when did taking time take all my life?

    Mommy, I'm afraid I've been talking to
    The hotline again
    It's stirring, but the ripples always seek out the ones
    Who carry me, mmh

    I blocked out the month
    Of February for support, mmh
    At least I have this year
    I won't be worrying anyone on tour, mmh
    As we speak I'm here to meet devils for tea
    Peering 'round the corner of my life
    I throw my drink into the faces of my demise

    (Hold on Jo')
    At thirty your honey's gonna ask you
    "What the hell is wrong with me?"
    (Jonie, get off)

    At thirty your honey's gonna ask you
    "What the hell is wrong with me?"
    And finally, an answer from your throat
    Comes crawling and you can proceed
