(viii) VERTICAL.
or, “From Floor to Ceiling.”
April 2016.

lyrics

I play the part of the tortured artist so well
That I don't know where my heart is
Yeah, I checked under the bed
And I don't know which me is fake
I don't know if I've got an expiration date
Like I'm a carton of eggs
 (a gallon of milk, baby, don't you let me spoil)

And I tend to forget it
And I tend to let my guard down
And I let it get to me
It always gets to me
I only cried at the Skype chat once or twice
And I didn't say anything
I just got between both my sheets and I sobbed
 (it wasn't even me they were after)

I love when I'm made to smile
'Cause even if there's nothing good in this world
It helps just to be upright, vertical
I love when I'm made to smile
'Cause even if there's nothing good in this world
It helps just to be upright, vertical
Upright, vertical
Upright, vertical
Upright, vertical

You're throwing up food in the yard
You just don't know where to start
Especially if you can't hold it down, oh-whoah
I like to take other people's struggles and make them my own
Wrap them up in a bow and present them in a song
And hope they don't notice when they hear it

I talk a lot about ideal concepts
For somebody who would say that they are not that

I keep on talking 'til I run out of punchlines
When I say that maybe my body will end face down in a ditch
A little bitch is what I am, I'm damned to mediocrity and flailing helpless by myself
No, I'm not going to sleep with you
I mean, I wouldn't have sex with you either
But I'd also rather if we slept in different beds, if that's okay
 (yeah, I wouldn't be too fond of me either)

I love when I'm made to smile
'Cause even if there's nothing good in this world
It helps just to be upright, vertical
I love when I'm made to smile
'Cause even if there's nothing good in this world
It helps just to be upright, vertical
Upright, vertical
Upright, vertical
Upright, vertical

I play the part of the tortured artist so well
That I don't know where my heart is
Yeah, I checked inside my chest
