Lyrics

At home in stasis,
The same positions,
The same philosophy,
I don’t know myself,
But I feel I know inertia

Same ghost pains,
The same stuff in the same veins,
Phantom remains of memories,
When I got hurt long ago,
But just forgot

Always gettin’ put in my place,
I need some bad day medicine,
This house has monsters in it already,
At least by comparison

I'm sorry, I don't mean to hurt your feelings,
I just feel like I'm dying,
Like I'm growing older,
But I'm none the wiser

I’m scared I might have schizophrenia,
Or just some kind of paranoia,
Secretly contemplating suicide,
Right after I had internal diatribe

I hate myself so much,
I hate hating myself,
It's not even worth it,
Even if you tell me,
That I don't deserve it

I just can't believe you,
Sometimes it feels like me,
And sometimes it feels like you’re just not convinced

Ghost pain,
Haunted trauma,
Do they have unfinished business,
And how much longer?

Defense mechanisms,
Tense perfectionism,
Does trauma ever go away,
Or does it just always stay and haunt you?

Always stay and haunt you
Does it just always stay and haunt you?

I’m so tired of being too young,
But getting old scares me,
I feel like I've lived too long for things to ever change,
They’ll just get worse

Nothing to say,
Nothing to do,
Where’s my new coat of paint,
Where’s my room electric blue

These ideas, they can’t be real,
But they find me, they’re inside me,
Who am I to say they’re mine,
Do they really describe me

Ghost pain,
Haunted trauma,
Do they have unfinished business,
And how much longer?

Defense mechanisms,
Tense perfectionism,
Does trauma ever go away,
Or does it just always stay and haunt you?

Does it just always stay and haunt you?
Does it just always stay and haunt you?
