Lyrics Print

I told myself I'd do the thing
Now I'm tired and bored and a bit lethargic
I'd call it half alive

But I'm here and I'm doing it
I'm committed to finish once I've started
That's only half a lie

I don't wanna do it now
I don't wanna do it ever
I wish I could figure out how
To forget about it forever

But I think that'd probably kill me ...

I poured myself a little something
And that idea was devoid of logic
Now I'm half asleep

The back of my brain has started thumping
Feels like I've become allergic
To really digging deep

I don't wanna do it now
I don't wanna do it ever
I wish I could figure out how
To forget about it forever

But I think that'd probably kill me ...

And there's clearly something to be said
About simply powering through
As long as you don't come out dead
You'll come out as you ...

I wanna do it now
I wanna take this high into forever
How did I figure out how
To continue with it forever

At least until it finally kills me ....

I don't wanna do it now
I don't wanna do it ever
I wish I could figure out how
To forget about it forever

But I think that'd probably kill me ...
