  • You've read the books, you've watched the shows
    What's the best way, no one knows

    Meditate, yea, hypnotized
    Anything to take it from your mind
    But it won't go
    You're doing all these things out of desperation
    You're going through six degrees of separation

    You had the drink, you take a toke
    Watch the past go up in smoke
    You fake a smile, ya, lie and say
    You're better now than ever and your life's okay
    But it's not, no

    You're doing all these things out of desperation
    You're going through six degrees of separation

    First, you think the worst is a broken heart
    What's gonna kill you is the second part
    And the third, is when your world splits down the middle
    And fourth, you're gonna think that you fixed yourself
    Fifth, you see them out with someone else
    And the sixth, is when you admit that you may have fucked up a little

    Oh no there ain't no helping, to remember one's self
    Oh no there ain't no helping, to remember one's self

    You tell your friends, yea strangers too
    Anyone who will throw an arm around you
    Tarrow cards, gems and stones
    Believing all the shit's gonna heal your soul
    Well it's not, whoa

    You're only doing things out of desperation
    You're going through six degrees of separation

    First, you think the worst is a broken heart
    What's gonna kill you is the second part
    And the third, is when your world splits down the middle
    And fourth, you're gonna think that you fixed yourself
    Fifth, you see them out with someone else
    And the sixth, is when you admit that you may have fucked up a little

    Oh no there ain't no helping, to remember one's self

    Oh no there's no starting over
    Without finding closure
    You take them back no hesitation
    That's how you know you've reached the sixth degree of separation

    Oh no there's no starting over
    Without finding closure
    You take them back no hesitation
    That's how you know you've reached the sixth degree of separation

    First, you think the worst is a broken heart
    What's gonna kill you is the second part
    And the third, is when your world splits down the middle
    And fourth, you're gonna think that you fixed yourself
    Fifth, you see them out with someone else
    And the sixth, is when you admit that you may have fucked up a little

    You're going through six degrees of separation
    You're going through six degrees of separation
    Oh no there ain't no helping, to remember one's self
    Oh no there ain't no helping, to remember one's self Writer/s: ANDREW FRAMPTON, DANIEL JOHN O'DONOGHUE, MARK ANTHONY SHEEHAN, STEPHEN KIPNER
