lyrics

he's never lifted from a dollar store or cried inside a pawn shop
my fake lawn kind of friend, bubbly as my soda pop
he'd never get arrested in the restrooms, or leave his groceries in the cart
I wish my bitter world would break his little heart

it's not amusing when you never have a chance to try another way
he ripped his thrifted hipster coat and bought designer next, it's all okay
you know he's only camping if you catch him sleeping in his glossy car
But I'll be surfing furniture or staring at the stars

I don't wanna start a fight, I just thought I'd let you know
Why I won't be at your side even if I want to go
you'll never understand, i'd be shocked to hear you try
Your life is mostly nice to live, the rest of us... Not so much

I guess you'll ask me if I'll tag along and sit there while you read the bill
I can't afford an appetizer at your favorites so I never will
I've got to hand it to you there, it takes some guts to ask for sympathy
When your problems are so easy in the end compared to me

You get delighted at my stories dredged in grit but no it's not a trade
For anything that's gonna help me drag this chapter past another day
The monologue of rage would never end, if I ever let it start
I wish my bitter world would break your little heart

I don't wanna start a fight, I just thought I'd let you know
Why I won't be at your side even if I want to go
you'll never understand, i'd be shocked to hear you try
Your life is mostly nice to live, the rest of us... Not so much
