  • Mhm, mhm, mhm
    Mhm, mhm, mhm

    I don't bother anyone
    Nervous when I stand
    Choking on the circumstance
    Only smoking second hand (mhm)
    Cut us open an' spread us out (mhm)
    Dry us in the sand (mhm)
    Lay the fibers side by side (mhm)
    And you'll begin to understand (mhm)

    I know it's over
    I was born a choker
    Nobody's coming for me, coming for me

    Mhm (I know it's over), mhm, mhm

    I don't bother anyone
    Never make demands
    Choking on the circumstance
    Self-sabotage is a sweet romance (mhm)
    Seems like all I'm worth is what (mhm)
    I'm able to withstand (mhm)
    Sooner I can realize (mhm) that
    Pain is just a middleman

    I know it's over
    I was born a choker
    Nobody's coming for me

    I see no volunteers
    To co-sign on my fears
    I'll sign on the line

    Alone, I'm gonna change my circumstance
    I know I need to move right now 'cause

    I know it's over
    I was born a choker
    Nobody's coming for me (only smoking second hand)
    I know it's over
    I was born a choker
    Nobody's coming for me, coming for me

    Like a little splinter buried in your skin
    Someone else can carve it out, but when you've got the pin
    It hurts a little less and you can even push it further in
    When your body's screaming out, trust your mind's listening
    Like a silhouette that you can barely see
    As a shadow cast upon the ground, where you'll eventually
    Lay forever, but the day goes on, the sun moves behind you
    You get taller, bolder, stronger and the rearview only blinds you
