lyrics

I hit the snooze button a bit more than anyone should
I set my alarm for nine and crawl out of bed around two
I had a long list of shit to get done today, and now I'm five hours behind
Maybe I'll just watch cartoons

When did I forget I was destined for greatness?
When did I start needing a pep talk to get out of bed?
When did I decide I was destined for failure?
How the hell did all of this apathy get in my head?

Just another day when I got done about half what I meant to
Just another day full of Facebook and Netflix and beer
And I know I've got no one to blame, and I know it's a goddamn shame
But I find myself with the same old excuses, and what use is trying to care?

'cause I'm at war with myself, and it sure feels like I'm gonna lose
Yeah, I've got a black belt in kicking my own ass, and boy, am I puttin' it to use
It seems to me the problem could be solved if I was in the mood
But if you've been listening you know that I'm not, yeah I've got the slacker blues

I could leave the house today, but that would mean taking a shower
And we're out of groceries, so I guess I'll order Chinese
Turn my phone off so nobody calls, and it's time for a Star Wars marathon
Yeah, that sounds like a whole lot more fun than paying my bills or filing my taxes
Or going to the store, yeah I'm skipping practice
I'm calling in sick, and no one can stop me; just try
Just try...

'cause I'm at war with myself, and it sure feels like I'm gonna lose
Yeah, I've got a black belt in kicking my own ass, and boy, am I puttin' it to use
It seems to me the problem could be solved if I was in the mood
But if you've been listening you know that I'm not...

Just another day when I got done about half what I meant to
When did I start needing a pep talk to get out of bed?
I hit the snooze button a bit more than anyone should
A bit more than anyone should
