Lyrics

i've got some scars in the back of my throat
from singing every song i ever wrote
i just wanna smile like i used to
i just wanna smile
i was in a bad place
so forget everything i said
maybe not all of it
but just bad parts
just the bad parts
one
my fingers will find this crooked conversation
to find the cracks and fill them in
but i'll only make it worse
'cause obsessive compulsions keep me socially inept
compulsive obsessions keep me glued to things i won't forget
so i put on my happy face
sew up a patch in every place i find
a shred of personality
so why tell me why tell me why
you still get homesick at home
ready i'm not ready i'm not ready
to take on the world
so i'll take the low road home
sleep off my demons and they won't know
i'll take the low road home
i'll take the low road home
sleep off my demons and they won't know
i'll take the low road home
i don't wanna make it to the couch
i wanna pass out on the floor
in the hopes that someone will have the decency to move my body
i'm afraid to go to sleep
it's not the nightmares or the dark
it's just the prospect of waking up tomorrow
oh no i'm not the man i thought i was
i'm sure as hell not him
it's still the right
i don't have the right to bitch about my petty trendy problems
the right
i don't have the right to treat you, me or anyone else like this
so i'll take the low road home
sleep off my demons and they won't know
i'll take the low road home
i'll take the low road home
sleep off my demons and they won't know
i'll take the low road home
i've spent one too many nights
dreaming of ways to die
spent far too many days
coming up with new reasons why
i've got bruises on my knuckles
that beg to differ with
my claims
that i'm doing fine
i've got some scars
i've got some scars
i've got some scars
but thankfully
i've got some scars
i've got some scars
i've got some scars?
i've got some scars in the back of my throat
from singing every song i ever wrote
i just wanna smile like i used to
just wanna smile like i used to
i've got some scars in the back of my throat
and the ones on my arms
well i hold them close
just wanna smile like i used to
just wanna smile
i've got a fire in the back of my throat
my friends, they won't know
just wanna smile like i used to
just wanna smile
i've got a fire in the back of my throat
from singing every song i ever wrote
i just wanna smile like i used to
i just wanna smile
