Broke because I'm lazy
And scared I'll disappear
Attention I'd come to love
Its made me tear at my reflection
And curse the friends I'm thinking of

Of all the changes I've lay claim to
The sudden streaks of common sense
A well-lit path ahead
One look over my shoulder
Invokes the circus I had led
Oh I observed my spine go slack
Oh I've done time for what I lack
Always addicted to looking back
Oh I out-whiskeyed and out-ginned
Oh I out-grieved and out-tailspinned
Aways known I'd begin again

Memory wants me dead
