Hello, there’s a place I’ve been going
There’s a place I’ve been going
Now I’m clean, it would seem
Let’s go somewhere I’ll be seen
As sad as it seems

I seen Greg and he was like, “I seen friends at the birthday party
They were kinda fucked up before it even started
They were gonna go to the Pinegrove show
They didn’t know about all the weird stuff
So they just left it “(So they just left it)
I was wasted (I was wasted)
And cold
Minding my business

And I seen the girls and they were all like
(Do you wanna come and get fucked up?)
Listen, I got myself a missus, says there can’t be any kissing
(No, don’t be afraid, you better wise up, kid.
It’s all Adderall now, it doesn’t make you wanna do it)

“This ain’t going well” I thought I was stuck in Hell
In a boring conversation with a girl called Mel
‘Bout her friend in Cincinnati called Matty as well

You pulled away when I went in for the kiss
No, it wasn’t a diss
You put the tap on
Cover up the sounds of your piss
After 4 years don’t you think I’m over all this?

That’s rich from a man who can’t shit in a hotel room he’s gotta share for a bit
You make a little hobby out of going to the lobby
To get things that they don’t have

Does it go through ya, when I’m talking to ya?
You know that I could sue ya if we’re married
And you fuck up again
Impress myself with stealth and bad health
And my wealth and progressive causes
Then drink your kombucha, and buy an Ed Ruscha
Surely it’s a print ’cause I’m not made of it
Look, the fucking state of it
I came pretty late to it, we can still be mates cause
It’s only a picture

All your friends
In one place
Oh, we’re a scene
Whatever that means

I depend
On my friends
To stay clean
As sad as it seems
As sad as it seems
As sad as it seems
