Original Me

Album: The Underrated Youth (2019)
  • Yeah

    I'm so sick of me, wake up and hate to breathe
    And I pride myself in that, so dramatic, I'll admit
    I'm so typical, my life ain't difficult
    But I'm so caught up in it, just a lowlife, I'll admit
    I'm self-critical, tryhard original
    Oh, I pride myself on that, such a loser, I'll admit

    And I ask myself
    When my time will come
    Will I run away?

    Will I run away?
    I'm the original loser
    Some days I wish I was anyone else
    I'm the original loser
    Some days I wish I was anyone else

    I'm so paranoid, most people I avoid
    Not seeking sympathy (nah), I just want all of this
    Under an umbrella (yeah)
    I try to shelter myself from the rain
    I try to stop my head from going insane
    I'm counting down, all the days
    I swear that there's a price they took
    Being alone outside then
    Can I suffocate you when they cannot fucking chase me, ayy
    Anagram all of the letters
    Tellin' me that I'm gonna be fine
    Cleaning the world is out of my mind
    Piece 'em together and dump on the sides
    I'ma be alone tonight
    If I try to stay alive
    And realize I'm going blind

    (Congratulations) I'm the original loser
    Some days I wish I was anyone else
    (Congratulations) I'm the original loser
    Some days I wish I was anyone else

    Don't let 'em change your mind
    Don't let 'em change your mind (ooh)
    And don't let 'em waste your time
    Don't let 'em waste your time (someone save me)
    Don't let 'em change your mind
    Don't let 'em change your mind (loser)
    Don't let 'em waste your time
    Don't let 'em waste your time
    Yeah, don't let 'em waste your time

    I'm the original loser
    (Congratulations)
