This song is about your stereotypical anarcho-punk who hates the world around him and is only happy when he's stage diving at Rancid shows onto people a third of his size.


I'm having trouble trying to sleep and I can't stay up during class
My work ethic's not what it used to be
And people say it's just these things that go away as we get older
But I haven't washed these jeans in two whole weeks

And those family vacations that we took to Carolina
All the broken bones we got from falling down
And all the pictures that we took that I deleted from my camera roll
Are the reason that I'll never trust myself with you again

I'm a first class loser with a ticket straight to Hell
And all the memories I've made are gnawing at me
All the people that I trust cannot remember my last name
And I don't blame them - I forget it all the time

My soul belongs to the Devil and my heart is made of mud
And all my veins are pulsing poison through my body
Oh, my eyes see red, red, red
And my brain, it wants me dead
And I'm incapable of telling you I'm sorry
Oh, oh, oh

They took a crowbar to my car and stole my wallet from the dashboard
Can't believe those petty bandits got away
They left a note down on the floor, kinda perched up on the pedal
Said, "Hey Jack, I hope you have a shitty day"

And I did, I'll admit it - I don't wanna go to work
I would rather kinda lay in my bed
But if I keep on blowing off all of the things that truly matter
All the anger I suppress will surely get into my head
Oh, oh, oh

I can't wait for the nap I'm gonna take when I get home
And I'm afraid of feeling sad again when I wake up tomorrow
Oh, the meds are settin' in, and it's time to see my friends again
And just pretend that nothing's ever been so wrong

And I can't wait until I'm old enough to get out of this town
I'll make new friends and find a city with the best punk scene around
Oh, I'm an outcast, I'm a loner
I'm a mess and I'm joker
All I really want is to be left alone for a while
Oh, oh, oh

This is Charlie's song because we both are sarcastically the most emo punk boyz you'll ever meet.

Charlie, I love you.
