lyrics

I don't fit in my father's clothes
I am still a kid
I thought I had grown up finally
But it seems I never did
Everything that was going well
Is starting to fall through
And when the day comes to its end
I'll just think of you
Where did all this come from
Expectations at every turn
I'd try to fight the fire
But in the end I know I'll burn
And I cannot ever decide
If I'm wasting the day
Devoting all my energy
To things that'll never stay

I never asked for this
Eating my meals alone
I used to be comfortable
But all my friends left home
So drown me with your compliments
And save my simple frame
Some day I will escape from this
Hold onto my name

I feel lucky if I get
Even four hours of sleep
The mountain I climb up each day
Only grows more steep
It's slowly weighing on my mind
This constant uphill fight
That is why I am struggling
To fall asleep at night
I see the black inside your eyes
And I can feel your pain
Every person I look at
Yeah you know they're all the same
One by one they trudge by
Never think it through
If they even know where to go
Or what to do

I never asked for this
Eating my meals alone
I used to be comfortable
But all my friends left home
So drown me with your compliments
And save my simple frame
Some day I will escape from this
Hold onto my name

As I stand inside the shower
Lose track of the time
I stare at my right forearm
And realize my crime
Day after day I lose
What am I trying to gain
Every move seems redundant
We're all stuck in the game
Though I still keep a vision
Try to cause some waves
Make the most of my time
Before I rest in my grave
I planned to fight for this
But I have made many errors
Now I'm left far from happy
With my current state of affairs

I guess I asked for this
When I chose to be alone
It has gotten comfortable
Knowing I have no home
I don't need your compliments
They just weigh down my frame
I think I can live with this
Accepting I have no name
