lyrics

I got a fidget toy ‘cause inside i’m a little boy
Restless, i play pretend all day and night
Inside my head

I want a rocket ship to take me out into the void
But only in my head; i’ve grown scared of heights
It feels impossible to sit and read a book
I’m 5 and words mean nothing
But it sure is nice to look

Ignorance is better
Ignorance is bliss
I spin my fidget toy around and ‘round in circles, but i still can’t focus

It seems impossible to smile and try to find the light
In tasks so fucking boring i start to see in black and white
I tap my fingers fast
Like that’ll speed up time
But i know it won’t ‘cause i am grown
I can’t lie

Was i always this afraid of dreaming?
Really, i don’t know
I’ve been panicking since i was 6,
But i thought i had control

Ignorance is better
Ignorance is bliss
I spin my fidget toy around and ‘round in circles, but i still can’t focus

Minutes or hours,
what does it matter
Could use a shower,
but what does it matter
Books are for reading,
but reading’s not easy
When you can’t sit still, but you’re afraid of leaving

Tap, tap, tap on the cell phone
Tap, tap, tap on the kitchen table

Miles from my body, my mind’s at a party

I’m not invited
