lyrics

i was keepin' it cool like i wanted to
but i admit that was months ago
yeah, the seasons change and that's the way of the way
but i'm recallin' that it wasn't so dramatic, though
don't remember the summer being such a bummer
maybe i'm just misrememberin'
it's startin' to seem like i'm exaggerating but it's like
i been melting and melting and melting into a puddle of me

i been sheddin' my skin into a hellish wind
toppin' out about a hundred degrees
as the temperature climbs and yeah, we're seein' the signs
i'm thinkin' everyone is numbing to the issue here
i can't remember ever talking ill of the weather
and i leave that up to simple people, simple folk
'n you'd think that i'd be an everlasting me
and it could be the heat and the heat and the heat
but now i'm just a puddle of me

spring and autumn
how come they come and gone
these are scary times and hell if i know why
hell if i don't
doom and gloomin'
with all the told-you-sos
these are scary times and hell if i know why
hell if i don't

contemplating escape from a feral brain
and i'm tugging out a million hairs
and now i'm getting wind about a childhood friend
who went 'n took a high speed spill out there
and we ain't talked for years and he ain't close to here
he kinda vanished into different people, different crowds
i kinda did the same, all but forgotten his name
until i heard he was friend of a friend of a friend
and now he's just a puddle of him

well i ain't wrong to say that on a different day
the same could happen to a closer friend
while i'm overheating and my head's all abeating
and i'm reading 'bout the bees and middle east and then
i go to turn the page but overwhelmed with pain
i crinkle up the paper, "get it off my mind!!!"
and i hate to see i'm doing this something for nothing or nothing for something or nothing for nothing
and now y'know i'm fallin' behind

blown back to start
'cos i been pissed on and off
thinking about flaking on the shaking
of this bleeding heart

scream and holler
throwin' up my arms
can't rub two nickels
y'know they're all withdrawn
doom and gloomin'
with all the told-you-sos
these are scary times and hell if i know why
hell if i don't
