Lyrics

I’m always thinking about useless things
I’m always checking out
I’m always bothering myself to bits
I’m always checking out
Forget it, nothing I change changes anything
I won't let in
I won't let it ruin my head
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off
Don’t wanna fuck it up
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off
Don’t wanna fuck up the place
I better walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
Walk it back, walk it back
I try to save it for a rainy day
It's raining all the time
Until everything is less insane
I'm mixing weed with wine
Forget it, nothing I change changes anything
I won't let in
I won't let it ruin my head
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off
Don’t wanna fuck it up
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off
Don’t wanna fuck it up
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off
Don’t wanna fuck up the place
I better walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
Walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
Walk it back, walk it back
I can't stay in
And I can't come back
I just keep awake
And I won't react
I walk through Lawrence town
Along the tracks
My own body in my arms
But I won't colapse
So don't go dark on me
It's all alright
If I'm gonna get back to you some day
I'll need your light
