Everything is a crisis
It seems like with each passing year
All I gain are more vices
To manage my recurring fear
I wasted too much time
Looking for the perfect rhyme
Now I’m just the sum of bad habits, bad hygiene, and beer

Everything’s a disaster
It’s too overwhelming to try
There are holes in the plaster
This place is a fucking pig sty
I woke up in a cold sweat
Dreamt I defaulted on debt
I think I’ll be paying it off until after I die

I’ve got so much anxiety
Of every variety

Everything is a nightmare
And I don’t know what I can do
Gotta make a decision
To give up or see it through
I’m still trying to decide
If I’d like to stay alive
And I’m scared to death I’ll find a reason to

I’ve got so much anxiety
Of every variety
There’s no peace
No sweet release
You know I’m always in your company

I'm sorry that today I didn't return calls
I tried to send a message, my skin started to crawl
I'm sorry that I saw you and didn't say hello
That morning I was someone who you don't need to know


from The Worst Excuses, released March 28, 2020
