lyrics

I'm aware of what I said
I'm aware of what I did
I'm aware that I should leave right now
conversation hardly flows
when I'm gazing at my toes
hoping mumbles are deciphered
I'm aware that I'm a shit
aware you're all aware of it
aware that anywhere else would suit me fine
lately it has seemed to me
every day is a party
spent searching for an empty room to hide in
well maybe hiding could be my saviour
squat under a rock 'til everyone is in their graves, yeah
or pretend everything's okay, yeah
maybe pretending could be my saviour
if only I could half pretend that I was someone else, yeah
half someone else, yeah
Now I can smell raw meat
from across the street
must be the Chinese restaurant
I'd book a table, go to lunch
but I've got a nagging hunch
it would only make me sad
because a certain social something
makes me realise I'm nothing
when surrounded by the boozing and chat
I'd rather crawl away and hide
pretend my heart stopped and I died
then carry on being a social retard
maybe hiding could be my saviour
squat under a rock 'til everyone is in their graves, yeah
or pretend everything's okay, yeah
maybe pretending could be my saviour
if only I could half pretend that I was someone else, yeah
half someone else, yeah
