lyrics

Sometimes I smoke to calm my nerves
Sometimes I smoke because it’s what my lungs deserve
I’ve done exceptionally well
Peddling my sadness, getting high off what I sell

I’ll blame it on the chemicals
Surrender to the tentacles
I swear I’ll quit tomorrow but for now there’s time to kill

Sometimes I drink to pass the time
Sometimes I drink to muddy up a restless mind
I have been fashioning a shrine
Of empty cans and empty choruses to this vanity of mine

I’ll blame it on the alcohol
Bad habits, bad cholesterol
We’ll never say for certain why I lack the wherewithal

I’ll blame it on old Catholic guilt
On blood we drank and wine we spilt
I’ll say that I was born imperfect
And this is just the way I’m built

I’ll blame it on society
Surrender my sobriety
And you can pass the bottle
But don’t pass the buck to me

Stop glamorizing it
Just admit you’re full of shit
It’s time to face the truth
You poor excuse for wasted youth

Stop glamorizing it
And just admit you’re full of shit
It’s time to face the truth
You poor excuse for wasted youth
You poor excuse, you’re wasted
