1st world problems may be last world problems.

lyrics

I'm barely here
I'm barely here
my skin's so thin
the fluorescents shine right through me
Can they see how close I am?
like an abscess leaking fluid
How many people in this store
are just about to lose it?

I ran up to the counter
like a man who's on fire
crying out to the pharmacist,
“Give me something to make the world smaller…
something to make the world smaller…
I need something to make the world smaller for me.”

‘Cause I just can't handle this easy life
gotta find something wrong just to feel alright
I just can't stand this easy life
am I afraid of love, or just love a fight?

Oh no

Lately it seems so easy
to get paralyzed by the size of things
(oh no, no no)
my soul’s agoraphobic,
I can't find a light to shine in the night of things
(oh no, no no)
I need a motorbike or a puppy
some gravity to turn the tide of things
(oh no, no no)
it's so easy to lose your narrative
when you question the wrong and right of things
(ohhhh)
When I think about
all that pain I caused
to the girls I’ve loved
and the friends I’ve lost
I wonder how I ever sleep at night…

I guess I just can't handle this easy life
gotta find something wrong just to feel alright
I just can’t stand this easy life
am I afraid of love, or just love a fight?

[repeat ad nauseam]
