I haven't been in love since I was 14...
back then "lots of magic"
Now it's just a checklist of the things I hate in all my exes
Trust me I know that I'm too old to identify with Holden(Caulfield)
But lately I'm feeling everyone is... just... A BUNCH OF FUCKING PHONIES

"pictures, and money, opinions of something
offended, upset 'cuz you can't find your identity"

While we're all out struggling to find our own individuality
yeah I'm still out struggling to find the love I thought we once had...

"Yelling at you 'cuz I saw you talking to your ex-boy in the parking-lot of Me-N-Eds. Never picking up your phone calls when I'm at the park drinking 4 Lokos with my friends"

Maybe it's not magic?
I just miss when my life felt more like a movie...
I've got all these habits
I just miss when I could be happy sober

I was on a path to work "white collar jobs"
on the side, I'd play in Bakersfield's Orchestra
I got mesmerized by Tattooed Vagabonds
playing basement shows at Jerry's Pizza
Now I'm on a path to hell is it too late?
I was mesmerized by strings when I was 8
Now I wait in line at Kaiser for "White Collar" men
to see the "Tattooed Vagabond" who's heart can't mend
