lyrics

There’s no reason, it’s what I do.
Performance hurts me more than it hurts you.
On top of your threats and the way that I bruise
I self flagellate until my ego is through.

Was there enough eye contact when I shook your hand?
Was I more witty and charming than tonight’s other band?
I‘ll be sulking hours after my load’s been blew
Running over all my interactions with you.

When the party’s over it’s a come down down down down.
It’s a comedown.
A comedown.

UP, NOW.
I’M GONNA BASH MYSELF UP NOW.
I’M GONNA BASH MYSELF.
BASH MYSELF.

I’m a beautiful man and I adore the mic
but I won’t feel that love three hours after tonight
I’ll feel like someone’s drunken uncle when I think on the show,
congratulate myself on a new all-time low.

My cartilage is dying from the jumping every night.
My self respect slumping from my being so trite.
When the bottle is empty and I finally pass out,
I have nightmares where I die in front of crowds.
