  • I don't feel a single thing
    Have the pills done too much
    Haven't caught up with my friends in weeks
    And now we're outta touch
    I've been driving in L.A.
    And the world it feels too big
    Like a floating ball that's bound to break
    Snap my psyche like a twig

    And I just wanna see if you feel the same as me

    Do you ever get a little bit tired of life
    Like you're not really happy but you don't wanna die
    Like you're hanging by a thread but you gotta survive
    'Cause you gotta survive
    Like your body's in the room but you're not really there
    Like you have empathy inside but you don't really care
    Like your fresh outta love but it's been in the air
    Am I past repair

    A little bit tired of tryin' to care when I don't
    A little bit tired of quick repairs to cope
    A little bit tired of sinkin'
    There's water in my boat
    I'm barely breathin'
    Tryna stay afloat
    So I got these quick repairs to cope
    Guess I'm just broken and broke

    The prescriptions on its way
    With a name I can't pronounce
    And the dose I gotta take
    Boy, I wish that I could count

    'Cause I just wanna see if this could make me happy

    Do you ever get a little bit tired of life
    Like you're not really happy but you don't wanna die
    Like you're hanging by a thread but you gotta survive
    'Cause you gotta survive
    Like your body's in the room but you're not really there
    Like you have empathy inside but you don't really care
    Like your fresh outta love but it's been in the air
    Am I past repair

    A little bit tired of tryin' to care when I don't
    A little bit tired of quick repairs to cope
    A little bit tired of sinking
    There's water in my boat
    I'm barely breathin'
    Tryna stay afloat
    So I got these quick repairs to cope

    Do you ever get a little bit tired of life
    Like you're not really happy but you don't wanna die
    Like a numb little bug that's gotta survive
    That's gotta survive
