The Science Of Selling Yourself Short

Album: Anthem (2003)

  • I've come to my senses
    That I've become senseless
    I could give you lessons on how to ruin your friendships
    Every last conviction, I smoked them all away
    I drank my frustrations down the drain, out of the way
    So I sit and wait and wonder
    Does anyone else feel like me?
    Someone so tired of their routines and disappearing self-esteems

    I'll sing along
    Yeah with every emergency
    Just sing along
    I'm the king of catastrophes
    I'm so far gone
    That deep down inside I think it's fine by me
    I'm my own worst enemy

    I could be an expert on co-dependency
    I could write the best book on underage tragedy
    I've been spending my time at the local liquor store
    I've been sleeping nightly on my best friends kitchen floor
    So I sit and wait and wonder
    Does anyone else feel like me?
    I'm so overdosed on apathy and put down on sympathy

    I'll sing along
    Yeah with every emergency
    Just sing along
    I'm the king of catastrophes
    I'm so far gone
    That deep down inside I think it's fine by me
    I'm my own worst enemy

    Let the meaning slip away
    Lost my faith in another day
    Self deprecation seems okay
    I never thought I'd make it anyway

    I'll sing along
    Yeah with every emergency
    Just sing along
    I'm the king of catastrophes
    I'm so far gone
    That deep down inside I think it's fine by me
    I'm my own worst enemy

    That I'm my own worst enemy
    I'm my own worst enemy
    And I'm my own worst enemy
    'Cause I'm my own worst enemy
    And I'm my own worst enemy Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER DEMAKES, LOUIS JAMES SCHAUB, PETER JOHN WASILEWSKI, ROGERIO LIMA MANGANELLI, VINCENT PHILLIP FIORELLO
