this is a song about saying goodbye to my little tooth. i wish it a fond farewell. i am now a nice, normal boy. hooray.


i guess i'm fake
it's my nature
i'm still bleeding
broken sutures

my head's heavy
it doesn't ache
it just melts away
like the snow that soaks through the soles of my shoes
in winter

i'm on the precipice
staring over the edge
soon it will all be warm again

i can suck it up
i'm not a kid now
i'm a man who's a boy who can't cope with life
in any
mature way

i'm sure it's nothing
it's always nothing with me
but i can't wait for this pain to go away

it's my fault anyhow
i should've put my hands down
but i didn't learn
