about

Not quite sure where this one came from, but I come up with repetitive/rhymey phrases like this a lot, like "Ayn Rand Random" or whatever. This one I just liked so much to actually turn into a song, and I liked the recording so much that I made it a single (which I wasn't intending to do for this album). This mix is a little bit different.

lyrics

I'm going off the deep end, my friend
Live life a little crazier
Do things I wouldn't do
They'll be like, "That was you?"
And I'll say, "Yeah, I've given up"

I'm going off the deep end, my friend
Since now I've nothing left to lose
I'll take up morning jogs
Find out just what I want
I guess I don't give a fuck

But I could be your deep end girlfriend
Settle down in the bottom of the pool
Your deep end girlfriend
And you could be my deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend too

I'm going off the deep end, my friend
And I'm taking shit more seriously
My collar buttons up
No, don't give me that guff
We all gotta do what we gotta do

I'm going off the deep end, incensed
At where decisions I make lead me
Oh, yeah, I'm diving down
To where the fishes drown
And I'm crushed, and I'm crushed, and I'm crushed

But I could be your deep end girlfriend
Settle down in the bottom of the pool
Your deep end girlfriend
And you could be my deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend
Deep end boyfriend
Deep end girlfriend

Love, love, lovely, please don't forgive me
I've got to be held accountable for the batshit things I do
Don't, don't, don't tell me that you love me
'Cause I know, but that won't fix the problem
When I'm hanging over the deep

It's been so long since I've taken a dip in the memory pool
My head goes down underwater, and the water's fresh and cool
I wait a moment or two, yeah, I've got nothing to lose
Well, until I see you, and then I'm up, up, gasping for air
I didn't realise you'd be there

So I'm going off the deep end, my friend
And I've never felt better
Do things I might not like
I still don't, but that's fine
But I can say that I know what's up

I'm going off the deep end, intending
To get a little smarter
To go a little farther
I'd like to think I've wisened up
But of course that's just what I want

But I could be your deep end girlfriend
Settle down in the bottom of the pool
Your deep end girlfriend
And you could be my deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend
Deep end boyfriend
Deep end girlfriend too
