  • Life's too short to even care at all oh
    I'm losing my mind losing my mind losing control
    These fishes in the sea they're staring at me oh oh oh oh oh oh
    A wet world aches for a beat of a drum, oh

    If I could find a way to see this straight, I'd run away
    To some fortune that I, I should have found by now
    I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down, come down

    Life's too short to even care at all oh
    I'm coming up now coming up now out of the blue oh
    These zombies in the park they're looking for my heart oh oh oh oh
    A dark world aches for a splash of the sun oh oh

    If I could find a way to see this straight, I'd run away
    To some fortune that I, I should have found by now

    And so I run to the things they said could restore me
    Restore life the way it should be
    I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down

    Life's too short to even care at all oh
    I'm losing my mind losing my mind losing control

    If I could find a way to see this straight, I'd run away
    To some fortune that I, I should have found by now

    And so I run to the things they said could restore me
    Restore life the way it should be
    I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down

    One more spoon of cough syrup now whoa
    One more spoon of cough syrup now whoa Writer/s: Ehson Hashemian, Eric Cannata, Francois Comtois, Jacob Tilly, Sameer Gadhia
