Never Mind The Cheerful

from by Palestrina

lyrics

The fault is always mine
Apologies are constantly flowing from my mouth
You’ve given me your time
Enough of it for you to fully figure me out
You say that I should stop
Being so hard on myself and wear a different mask
And see if I could drop
The exponential overwhelming self-loathing act

But I can’t
It’s who I am

I could be well received
If I just shut the fuck up about negativity
And see if I can be
A little better at thinking positively
I’m sorry I got mad
I’m sorry I am useless
My apologetic tab
Is longer than the hit list with every spot having my name filled in

I just can’t
It’s who I am

I feel a change coming on
(Run away from the strange, run away from the strange)

I feel a change coming on
(Run away from the strange, run away from the strange)

Don’t think I’ll be here too long
(Start thinking differently, start thinking differently)

Don’t think I’ll be here too long
(Start thinking differently)

I can’t think differently

(You should act differently) I can’t act differently
(You should sing differently) I can’t sing differently
(You should feel differently) You should feel differently
