The Life Ironic

Does anyone else feel nostalgic for the nineties?

Before I came to know the darkness inside me

In case you haven’t noticed, lately I’ve been a bit unstable

I’ve been choking on air and pacing around tables

I needed a fresh start, but I just wasn’t able

To see that there’s more to this life than late night cable

It took a few years for me to realize

This town’s been changing right before my eyes

And maybe that’s the way it should be

Some days it feels the only thing that hasn’t changed is me

My problems can’t be solved in a mere twenty two minutes

Will you stay with me until the credits finish?



These are the things that make me feel nervous

I’m unaccustomed to life without purpose

I want nothing more than to find inspiration

In a three hour drive with no real destination



For the first time in years I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone.

You know, I thought it would be harder to make it on my own.

But I find myself looking forward to the unknown.

The daydreams that come with new found loneliness

Are a familiar comfort I’d forgotten to miss

I’m getting better but I haven’t been the same since.



These are the things that make me feel nervous

I’m unaccustomed to life without purpose

I want nothing more than to find inspiration

In a three hour drive with no real destination



I’m doing my best just to keep my distance

But every attempt at escape is just met with resistance

It’s time to leave home and it’s hard to admit this

I’m starting to think that one day I will miss this



You know you’ve got too much free time on your hands

When you’re dialing old friends trying to make amends

You know you’ve got too much free time on your hands

When you want to sail the world till the oceans end



I’m doing my best just to keep my distance

But every attempt at escape is just met with resistance

It’s time to leave home and it’s hard to admit this

I’m starting to think that one day I will miss this



These are the things that make me feel nervous

I’m unaccustomed to life without purpose

I want nothing more than to find inspiration

In a three hour drive with no real destination



These are the things that make me feel nervous

I’m unaccustomed to life without purpose

I want nothing more than to find inspiration

In a three hour drive with no real destination
