lyrics

Chronic Dylsexia

I'm dumb. I used to not be.
Always needed glasses to see
Destruction caused by the vices in my life.
I'm not drinking anymore or any less.
I've put my future in the past.
So I don't have to worry about Monday.

Been looking toward the future.
Been looking for my shoes.
Been looking for a metaphor to make some sense of you.
Been working on an accent to make myself distinct.
Must be chronic dylsexia making no sense of what I think.

I wish someone'd take down that goddamned christmas tree.
All the snow gone now, it's 65 degrees.
Someone please call a doctor I need help with Jeopardy.

Been looking for redemption.
I’ve been looking for a smoke.
Been looking for the laughter somewhere within this joke.
Been working on a fortune to buy my fatigue away.
Must be chronic dylsexia making no sense of what I say.

With a degree of sarcasm I need to say
I missed you friends since you been away
And as a friend I thought about it, you been fired.
As a manager of my hopes, I've retired.

Been looking for a big car to speed away from here,
Justification for now why you all still care,
Organization in my busy, busy week.
Must be chronic dylsexia making no sense of what you think.
