lyrics

twenty-six days till they drill my head
now remember what the bridesmaid said
how self-loathing keeps you home in bed
so you ought to learn a trade instead

I'm a fraud without a job
counting magpies, wasting time
I'm so happy, I'm feeling weak
everything's so beautiful that I can't breathe
I've ruined your life, I'm doing fine
I've been doing quite alright
only son, ugly daughter
when do we talk about the good ones?

tried to sleep, but once again
I wake up wanting something more
party girls and idle men
now they only make me bored
been to the moon just for a trip
but I know where I belong
only son, ugly daughter
when do we talk about the good ones?

I'm your chosen televangelist
your second-favorite narcissist
your all-in-one embarrassment
your go-to optimist
and I'll give you everything that I have
I'll give you everything that I have

you're my necessary hypnotist
my anesthesiologist
my crash-test mannequin
my unplanned eulogist
and I'll give you everything that I have
I'll give you everything that I have

twenty-six days till they drill my head
now remember what the bridesmaid said
'cause I know that I've had every chance
and there's no excuses left
