February

something's gonna drag me down soon- that's clear

a memory of some sort a child's tear

something's gonna drag me down before too long

maybe a photo, i don't know, maybe this song

february can be real brutal

but this year we're getting lots of sunny days

life has its way of pampering you sometimes

in meaningless n' stupid n' pathetic sort of ways

i've had some newfound creativity flowing through me

a buzz of opinions and ideas gushing through me

most days n' most nights are a lot less gloomy

it's like i look at myself and i see a new me

well maybe 'new' isn't exactly what i mean

because it's more like i feel that what i'm actually seeing

is a freer me an easier me not a bitter me a sweeter me

the kind of me i could have been if this wouldn't have happened or if

my heart was tin

but then again in the back of my head

i know this can't last there's a giant slope ahead

it's all a matter of when i begin the descent

to the depths that no one can mend

something's gonna drag me down soon- that's clear

a memory of some sort a child's tear

something's gonna drag me down before too long

maybe a photo, i don't know, maybe this song, maybe this song

going to a party later tonight

don't really want to but i should be polite

to the people who invited me- friends of mine

sometimes i have pictures of them in my mind

at your funeral all red eyed n' teary

tonight their gonna be all chit chat n' cheery

at your funeral with stubble n' a trembling bottom lip

tonight at the party they'll all attempt to look hip

hop around, maybe dance a little

have a drink eye a woman and advance a little

do just what i would have done once upon a time

before the mutant cell you were hosting committed its crime

before it picked you in your prime- but that's enough!

please! please no more of this stuff!

these thoughts and myself just like bonnie n' clyde

the party's starting i better get ready so i don't miss my ride

something's gonna drag me down soon- that's clear

a memory of some sort a child's tear

something's gonna drag me down before too long

maybe a photo, i don't know, maybe this…

something's gonna drag me down soon that's clear

a menu a street sign a child's tear

something's gonna drag me down before too long

maybe this party tonight who knows… maybe this song, probably this s
