  • You keep changing your mind for so many reasons
    From what I can tell
    You just might as well
    Lay down and choke on your own

    I can't give you enough to just keep believing
    This shit don't run well
    It's burned out as hell
    And it's trying so hard not to know

    You're filling it up just to turn out on empty
    God damn, I know just how it feels
    I'm gonna tear out all that's inside me
    Look away from here 'cause nobody cares
    And they're trying so hard not to know

    You take all of you want haven't found any answers
    Look down and stare and I run around and yell
    That it might not rain any more

    You never stand up long enough to pull it together
    Well who gives a damn and very few can
    When they're trying so hard not to know Writer/s: Nathaniel Rateliff
