lyrics

My blood is getting thicker
I'm an ocean with no moon
I wish I could see you but I know it's just too soon
So I snuck into your house
And I slept in your bed
I let the dogs in for you
And I made sure they were fed
You're seeing red but I'm seeing blue
I got better friends than you
Have you ever laid still and kissed your head with your own fist?

If you made up your mind then get up and go.
I'm a grown man, I can handle alone.

I carry your heart with me
I've got pockets full of blood
You said one day you'd visit
Well I really wish you would
And you might not recognize me
I'm not as handsome as I was
I worried myself to death
Then I dug myself up
I wish that there was something
Some magic spell or phrase
To wash away my worried brain, to make this go away
My nights are all spent sleepless
I stay drunk during my days
Any excuse to chain smoke my life away

If you made up your mind then get up and go.
I'm a grown man, I can handle alone.
