Outta This Nothin'

lyrics

Wish I was someone. Wish I had somethin'.
Wish I could crawl my way out of this nothin'.
Wish I had thoughts so strong they could carry
me from the world so imaginary,

but my words they have no weight.
The edges continue to frey,
and it's only so long 'til the picture is gone
and I have nothing left to say

to you today. Say to you ever.
Say to you now that I'll see you never.
Say all things that I need to say but
you don't give one good God damn anyway,

so I'll stop and I'll yell at the sun.
I've got nowhere else to run.
As I stare at the wind don't know where to begin
to find out where I've come undone.

Seems so cliche just to try and win the war
when you don't know what the hell you're fightin' for.
You dig and you dig and you try to find more,
but losing the battle's what you were built for.

Well I'll stop and I'll stand my ground.
I look and there's no one around,
and as soon as it's begun I am overrun.

Wish I was someone. Wish I had somethin'.
Wish I could crawl my way out of this nothin'.
Wish I had thoughts so strong they could carry
me from the world so imaginary,

but my words they have no weight.
The edges continue to frey,
and it's only so long 'til the picture is gone
and I have nothing left to say
