(v) SMOKES & CUTS.
or, “I Miss Being a Kid.”
February 2016.

lyrics

I've always put too much stock in photographs
I find sometimes they affect me even more than if I'm actually there
Days pass in school sitting in bathroom stalls
People in parking lots outside of malls
And I'm not there at all

And everybody's got their little smokes and cuts that they have got to deal with
But I've got to learn those aren't my burdens to bear
It's so very hard when it's people that you love and care about
But sometimes you have to do the selfish thing and withdraw

I've always put too much stock in my opinions
Somehow if there is something I can say, I assume that it should be said
It took me a while but then I started to realise
I can't hold all of these feelings inside my head
I distance myself instead

And everybody's got their little smokes and cuts that they have got to deal with
But I've got to learn those aren't my burdens to bear
It's so very hard when it's people that you love and care about
But sometimes you have to do the selfish thing and withdraw

So why should I care about other people's lives?
They shouldn't interest me at all
Oh, why do I care about other people's lives?
I have for as long as I recall
So why should I care about other people's lives?
They shouldn't interest me at all
Oh, why do I care about other people's lives?
I have for as long as I recall
I have for as long as I recall
I have for as long as I recall

And everybody's got their little smokes and cuts that they have got to deal with
But I've got to learn those aren't my burdens to bear
It's so very hard when it's people that you love and care about
But sometimes you have to do the selfish thing and withdraw
