lyrics

Settling feels stupid, oh please don't make me do this anymore
It's only been three days and I've had enough of cheap beer and kids looking to score
If this place changes her I swear I will never forgive them
But god damn I'm scared that I will lose my only friend
I know I'm wrong, I know you're right
"Just give it time, stay here tonight"

You haven't seen Mirror Lake in August
But trust me you're not missing much
I have seen it all before
Just take me home put me to sleep
Lay me down and watch me weep

Goodbye summer, hello school
You sure got me with that one, you sure played me a fool
Please don't think I'm angry, at least not with you
We both know I'm angry, it's just what I do
To me, to hurt myself, to teach me lessons
To let me know that I am wrong, I am wrong
And everything that I love is gone,
Everyting that I hate--they've been replaced with new things
Have you seen Mirror Lake recently?
I think I might start to like it here
Is that enough? Let's just call it even
Forget I even said anything

Forgive, forget, feel good, for good
I should be feeling something more than miserable
But I have been thinking about leaving just keep walking
Like that sign up on the wall I'll walk until I find myself
Left you behind with everyone else
But I am not nearly that brave to save me
Gave my hope away to futures bright
At least that's what I'm told but it must be under their light
'Cause to me it's pretty dark here
Guess my bills were left unpaid
Perhaps collaboration with my mind yields this darkness that I've made

Between sizes, between classes, I am trying to fit in
But no, not nearly nothing works for me again
Win as soon as I am able
Left my keys up on the tables
I am gone now don't wait up
I am gone I just gave up

You haven't seen Mirror Lake in August
But trust me you're not missing much
I have seen it all before
Just take me home put me to sleep
Lay me down and watch me weep

I am gone now don't wait up
I am gone I just gave up
