Things about to fall around me
Getting my booty kicked
There's gold now in the foundry
But I'm still here burning sticks

Couldn't you just let me go
Write me off as a loss
I'm sorry I wasted your time you know
And how I came across

Why am I always interrupting
People being themselves
I was only being me
And I don't have the right to be
I keep finding myself disrupting
The felicity of everyone else
Accidentally
Irreversibly

I'm always feeling guilty
For bringing the whole world down
And now I'm feeling guilty
For believing I actually count

Cause no one's paying no nevermind
They always know a prop
Relentlessly I'm stumbling through time
As they're begging me to stop

Why am I always interrupted
From trying to be myself
I was only being me
And I don't have the right to be
I keep finding myself disrupting
The felicity of everyone else
Accidentally
Irreversibly
