Shudder / Drinking Alone

lyrics

Am I someone broken?
I'm not so sure these days
People keep on hoping
That I will soon be ok

They say that they're worried
They say that they're afraid
Of what I'm turning into
Something grotesque that they hate

I'm turning away my own mother
I'm shutting out all my lovers
I'm hiding under my old covers
Screaming inside as I shudder

I'm turning away my own mother
I'm shutting out all my lovers
I'm hiding under my old covers
Screaming inside as I shudder

Am I progressing?
Or am I regressing?
My future actions
Left to educated guessing

I'm at the tipping point
Due to past lives owned
I find myself running away
Hurting everyone I've known

I'm turning away my own mother
I'm shutting out all my lovers
I'm hiding under my old covers
Screaming inside as I shudder

I'm turning away my own mother
I'm shutting out all my lovers
I'm hiding under my old covers
Screaming inside as I shudder

I'll return to the ones that spurned
As they yearn to let me burn

---
I'm drinking alone and I'm sleeping alone tonight
But it's alright with me
I've gotten used to this
It's commonplace for me to be here with no one else here

I could call up my friends to try to talk to them
But I know truly most of them don't care about me
So I'll just fall asleep with some bourbon I bought for cheap
Dreaming for the answers to the questions of my realities

I'm drinking alone as I'm sinking alone
Then I flee to my home where I'm sleeping alone
