Everyday I do the same thing. Everyday I have the same thoughts. If time doesn’t pay, I will have wasted away and I wish you’d just say if you’re unhappy. Every minute of every day. The late, the great, the life I had; the food on the plate or in a brown paper bag. In doubt, in fear, in low self esteem. In a windowless room, I commit to you my dream.
Track Name: Muncie Girls - The Teacher
How to love, how to respect, how to be kind and how to forget.
Track Name: Muncie Girls - The Real You
You’re not a writer, you never were. You found other ways to prove your worth. If you find a way to have it all, make sure you write to me (I’m at the same address, I just don’t live there anymore).
The real you wouldn’t be scared, she’d know the world against you is all in your head. The real you would get out of bed and forget about the things that were never said.
You’re never quiet. Let it be known that when you tire it starts to show. You say what you feel unless it’s alone. You’ll need double that to let your creativity grow.
Track Name: Great Cynics - Whatever You Want
Talk about it for a while, forget about it and then smile. Know that everyone’s got a question mark and we’re always taught to think that we’re not living to our potential, and we all need a bigger pencil to get out of this thinking. Draw a line through this feeling and exercise my right to do whatever I want, I can take it. I’ll do whatever I want, I can take it. Quick to say “I don’t know what you mean,” but I don’t think that you get me. So this.. why do we always fuck up so easily. But that’s fine ‘cos that’s you but me, I’m running on to do whatever I want, I can take it. I’ll do whatever I want, I can take it. And I don’t wanna act dumb anymore, like getting in my car and driving off with you is not worth fighting for. If there’s nothing that doesn’t wear itself out it’s not such a shame to change.
Track Name: Great Cynics - Scarier Area
Sometimes I underestimate the time it takes to get from here to where I wanna be in my own head. I set my sights too far away and then I’m always upset when I can’t reach them. But I’m getting closer and I guess that’s all that I can say, I’m trying not to be distracted by the fact that you’re so far away. But all my thoughts feel so typical of growing up before you start getting old. How have I held myself back for so long when it seems so easy now? Why does it take change to see things differently? I’ll sleep well tonight just knowing I’ll wake up next to you. But you expect too much, that’s why I let you down. And you complain constantly. Try honesty. Try improving all the time. Try never needing sympathy for the doubts that cloud your mind. But I know this might just sound typical of a girl who’s growing up but not getting old. How have I held myself back for so long when it seems so easy now? Why does it take change to see things differently? I’ll sleep well tonight just knowing I’ll wake up. But I wake up just to close my eyes again. I never wanna get up but it’s too easy to pretend. So I lift this lazy head and drag it to a desk and try to fill it with the things I need to wanna wake up again.
Track Name: Great Cynics - Dirt In My Book Bag
I don’t think she has it in her to be crazy like you. She never does that thing where she’s got crazy eyes when I tell her I just wanna hang out with the guys and get high. I don’t wanna see her all the time and I don’t wanna answer the phone when I don’t wanna. So dance with me and I’ll pretend we don’t need to look into the future. It’s not working, it doesn’t feel like I’m on the right side of town, my mind is drifting to what I already found and what I want is not what was wanted from me. I thought it was what I needed after a year of getting messed up and not getting of bed. Where for days at a time I would just forget about everything that made me think of who I am and all the things I wish I wasn’t, and what I can now say out loud. So say out loud ‘cos I’m convinced this’ll be the last time each time you say it. It’s not working, it doesn’t feel like I’m on the right side of town, my mind is drifting to what I already found and what I want is not what was wanted from me.
