lyrics

I haven't been taking the medicine but I've been going to bed early
And sometimes sleeping all day
I talk to myself so the quiet can't rest, I'll say anything to fill the emptiness

And I'm just the same and you always knew
I can be brilliant and disappointing too

I've been recycling lines when I don't know what to say
I've been going to bed early and sometimes sleeping all day
I sing for myself in a quiet campaign and when it comes to sad songs I'll sing anything

I've been throwing out clothes
I've been burning pages
I’ve been wrestling fixations
I’ve been making donations
Don’t feel sorry for me ‘cause I don’t feel anything
Don’t feel sorry for me ‘cause I don’t feel anything

I haven’t been taking the medicine, but I’ve been going to bed early
And sometimes sleeping all day
And sometimes sleeping all day

I sleep it off
