about

It's easy to lose your mind in this day and age.

lyrics

This is not just a song
This is not just a song

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

These nights I threw every piece into a fire
Wondering where this cake is
It feels like we're out of beta
And it's only breaking my folding chair
'Cause if my feet are buried in the sand means being alone
And never knowing when there's a breeze
Then I guess I'm better off facing time again in Riker's Island

But I can't move on
'Cause that means slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup
Slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to Paris
'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting our time in Paris
So I keep on coming, keep coming
I keep coming back back back back

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

My friends say "Like my status if you're a pimp!
And stop crying like a baby!"
They tell me that I'm out of my mouthwash
But I know that what we both share is shit on your head
And I've been willing to go streaking in the park with pink flamingos in the pool
'Cause if being with you means being screwed
And never knowing when you're screwed
Then I guess I'm better off screwed

But I can't move on
'Cause that means chasing me all over town
Chasing me all over town
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to heaven
'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting I've already been to heaven
So I keep on coming, keep coming
I keep coming back back back back

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

Drop it
Yo, Jimmy Neutron was just nineteen
When he created a strange machine
His parents were dead, he lived in Paris
Yeah, he lived in Paris
I guess you could say it was kind of crazy
I guess you could say it was kind of cra-cra-crazy
But I left gum in my mouth overnight, yeah
I left gum in my mouth overnight
But I left gum in my mouth overnight, yeah
I left gum in my mouth overnight

Back (x16)

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)
