about

Ever feel like everyone around you is fucked up in one way or another? But, then again, so are you...

lyrics

Everyone knows that he’s an alcoholic
And he won’t live past thirty and we’ll just learn to cope
Everyone knows that she is on so many
Behavioural meds it could anesthetise an elephant

And everyone knows that girl is a schizo
And everyone knows that guy is a psycho
And everyone, everyone knows

At least their friends are more fucked up than them
It takes a lot but they’ve managed all the same
At least their friends are more fucked up than them
They sometimes want to be in the club
But they know it’s an impossible job
At least their friends are more fucked up than them

I have a friend who cancels all her shrink appointments
At the last minute and reschedules again
And there’s the one who self medicates with everything
Including but not limited to alcohol and masturbation

And then there’s the ones who just generally wallow in it
Making excuses for why they never get their shit together
And everyone, everyone knows

At least their friends are more fucked up than them…

Then there is me, I don’t sleep, I just sit up all night
Playing video games just to pass the time
I’m so scared of rejection, I don’t have a job because
I never apply in case they don’t like me

I don’t go to a shrink because I’m scared to call one
I’m a high maintenance girlfriend, my lover just has to deal with it
But everyone, everyone knows

At least my friends are more fucked up than me
It takes a lot but they've managed all the same
At least my friends are more fucked up than me
And I sometimes want to be in their club
But I know it's an impossible job
At least my friends are more fucked up than me
