The Boredom Is The Reason I Started Swimming. It's Also The Reason I Started Sinking
The Boredom Is The Reason I Started Swimming. It’s Also the Reason I Started Sinking - The Front Bottoms (The Front Bottoms)

Foreign countries, hardwood floors, and trying to sleep
Foreign languages on all three channels of TV
I don’t want no drama or baggage
Don’t tell me complicated stories about who you used to be
But are different and have changed as a person completely
And I am not sure that I want any single part of this
Any single part of any of this shit

Cause everybody pays
Everybody’s head is in the noose
You’re part of the program, get with the program
Cause everybody comes and falls asleep
Lies awake and pretends to be sleeping
You’re not even sleeping, you’re probably even listening
Keep it simple and honest, stop crying you’re an adult
I could stand up, I could man up
It’s just so convenient to be fragile
This pain is constant and sharp
Watching the singles that you send
I wanna feel lethal, on the inside
I wanna read American Psycho again

But I’m not sure that I want any single part of this
Any single part of any of this shit
Cause everybody pays, yeah everybody’s head is in the noose
You’re part of a program, get with the program
Cause everybody comes and falls asleep
Lies awake and pretends to be sleeping
You’re not even sleeping, you’re probably even listening
You’re not even sleeping, you’re probably even listening
Even listening

But everybody pays, yeah everybody’s head is in the noose
You’re part of the program, get with the program
Cause everybody comes and falls asleep
Lies awake and pretends to be sleeping
You’re not even sleeping, you’re probably even listening
You’re not even sleeping, you’re probably even listening
Even listening to me

The Boredom Is the Reason I Started Swimming, Its Also the Reason I Started Sinking

I wanna read American Psycho again.

But I am not sure that I want
Any single part of this
