There's No Place in the Justice League for a Kid Like Me

Subtlety’s never really been my thing
I wear my heart on my sleeve
You’ve got me cheating on my diet
Cause I could use the caffeine
I’ll turn the radio up, so I
Can drown out these daydreams

I’m repeating myself again
Because I’ve run out of words
The world’s finally catching up to me
Man, I’ve lived through worse

Apologies have never been my thing
And that’s got me feeling down
You caught me falling asleep again
It’s the nature of this machine
I’ll turn the radio up, so I
Can drown out these daydreams

I’m repeating myself again
Because I’ve run out of words
The world’s finally catching up to me
Man, I’ve lived through worse

The clocks here
Never work the way they should
I’m always late for something
I learned to fall before I stood

I’m repeating myself again
Because I’ve run out of words
The world’s finally catching up to me
Man, I’ve lived through worse

There’s a familiar comfort in the summer
These days it only rains when I’m away
The Atlantic knows me like no other
And there’s times I wish you’d stay
