lyrics

I am afraid, afraid of my shadow
so I don't go outside.
Afraid of my dentist
so my teeth are fallin' out.
My canines are septic,
all flesh and decay.
Cause I only bite if I'm threatened, afraid
Fight or flight switch
on when it broke.
An uneasy punchline,
A horrible joke.
The fictional frontline
to which I've been drafted
Will bend to my will
if it ever should happen.
But wartime cares not
for joy of existing.
I can't help but wonder
the world I am missing,
and I am terrified
of what I have become.
Comfortably dumb,
endearing to some.
Peddling scares
In the place of a pass time.
But I'm just a lily
disguised as a landmine.
For short bursts of Time
I puff out my chest.
But my asthma requires
me to take baby breaths.
My closest connections
transmissions in code.
And I miss my Memaw
when I'm on the road.
I'm oddly obsessed
with being depressed.
I'd heal if I wanted,
but likely remain a mess.
I am terrified
Of what I have become.
Comfortably dumb,
endearing to some.
I am terrified
Of what I have become.
Comfortably dumb,
endearing to some.
And I am terrified
of what I have become.
Observed from a distance,
Endearing to none
