Alphabet with Nothin

from The History of a Nervous Path by Josh Belville



you're always talking in complete sentences
but i still wonder what you're saying
you're speaking in an alphabet with nothin
but guttural parlance
and not as much conveying
it's hard to form a bond
when it's impossible to respond
so won't you help me out
and start speaking english baby

sometimes when you make the bed i'm seething
cause who cares if a bed is made
it's not like the rest of our life looks perfect
the bed's just a place where we get laid
the mess is where i thrive
it reminds me that i'm alive
so won't you help me out
and leave all that shit alone

pancakes are a sucker's breakfast i swear
they just fill you up too fast
sausage and a waffle, two eggs, hashbrowns
now there is a meal that's built to last
so here's where i went wrong
you were my pancakes all along
so won't you help me out
and be better breakfast baby

judy heard your mother say that one day
you'd die in a burning building
seems a little harsh in hindsight
though at the time i agreed with everything
and i would start the fire
yeah i'd build the biggest pyre
so won't you help me out
and give me a reason not to

nothing is as good as you think it is
it's all just a goddamn shitpile
take a step away from facebook
see how your clothes make you look so juvenile
life has no meaning
we're all gonna die
so won't you help me out
and die first!
