Lyrics:

I’m not like them, but I can pretend
The sun is gone, but I have a light
The day is done, but I’m having fun
I think I’m dumb, or maybe just happy

Think I’m just happy (x3)

My heart is broke, but I have some glue
help me inhale, and mend it with you
We’ll float around, and hang out on clouds
Then we’ll come down, and have a hangover

Have a hangover (x4)

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I’m not like them, but I can pretend
The sun is gone, but I have a light
The day is done, but I’m having fun
I think I’m dumb, or maybe just happy

Think I’m just happy (x3)

I think I’m dumb (x12)

Rifle and pistol night at West Coast Armory in Seattle, WA. Best gun store and range i have ever been to hands down. Ran a course of fire and had the major shakes and jitters of excitement and competition. Especially by abiding by the course of fire layout rules. Definitely cracked under pressure and didnt have a clean run tonight but made within top ten out of 25 or so shooters. Great experience and definitely happy to have it with my brothers and family here. #westcoastarmory #gunblr #9mm #pewpew #vikingtactics #shooterslife #shooting #harduse #2A #streamlight #igmilitia #seattle #mandp #trainhard #stayhumble #raughs #slicethepie @rjtheradnosereindeer @dommypls
