It started at the bar
Of a familiar restaurant
I was there to see a friend
You were there just for the paycheck
When you told me your name
I couldn’t even think of mine
I was captivated
And running out of time
But little did I know
I was in for quite a show

Well I’ve spent the last 2 years
Grinding all day with my head in the oven
Just to find out all my hope and fears
Were really all just for nothing
I thought that you should know
Those words I said were not my own

I lay there that night
With you sleeping right next to me
The room felt colder than the winter
When we didn’t have any heat
Because the last few weeks
It seems like it’s been his name
Filling the space between your cheeks
Things will never be the same
You should have been more clear
Things didn’t just get weird


We just sit here and medicate
And watch the Red Wedding
Just to distract us
From all the useless betting
Well if I said this
Maybe she’d say that
All these voices in my head
I’m so tired of all this shit

I want that dogs head on a stick
