I tried to write an optimistic song But the words got twisted and it came out wrong And all the hopeful words that I could have said Got knotted by my hopeless tongue instead How can there be so many good things? How can none of these good things come to mind? I’m trying hard to pull my heartstrings But I’m tripping on the lines I tried to write a love song But my heart turned black and it came out wrong Instead of all the ways that I care about you I can only sing about the hell I put you through Now it’s sounding like a gimmick Now it’s starting to sound just like a fad I wish I had some other lyric But when you’ve never been happy then it’s all you have Why must I be so miserable? Why are misery and I inseparable? I swear I want to write something I swear I want to be someone better But I get tangled with the letters And I can never tie the words together Misery Misery I tried to write a miserable song But the chords hit a stroke and it came out wrong Lock it up lock it up with a major key So nobody can understand the misery Why must I be so miserable? Why are misery and I inseparable? I swear I want to write something I swear I want to be someone better But I get tangled with the letters And I can never tie the words together Misery Misery

Woke up from a fractured dream of a sleepless night Woke up to face the nightmare of a brightening sky An alarm in your head, ringing heart echoing with dread, bloodshot eyes Woke up with the terror of the thought of going outside But you’ve got a list of things you’ve gotta get done today Of all the things that you should’ve done yesterday Piling up, riling up with every delay You know It’s worst In the mornings When it hurts Without warning You could stay cowering in your room But the whole world’s towering over you Cause it’s worst in the mornings Bury your head in the pillow or in the sand Bury your thoughts in the grip of your shaking hands Just a dark silhouette trying hard to take it step by step, if you could stand Then you can bury your heart in the mask of a smiling man Oh son oh sun what have you done? Just another burning challenge to overcome All your troubles, and your struggles you have to confront You know It’s worst In the mornings When it hurts Without warning You could stay cowering in your room But the whole world’s towering over you Cause it’s worst in the mornings Tomorrow can’t come quick enough This is worse than yesterday And tomorrow you will say the same And the day after until maybe one day You’ll face up to what’s in front of you And stop putting off your plans And take a knife to your wrist so you don’t have to spend Another day in the life you can’t fucking stand

Another aspiration that’s doomed for failure A chokehold in the arms of embrace So raise your glass to the unhappy couple Throw away your life and throw your bouquet Down the aisle, down the rabbit hole A dead-end road all have walked and wed In sickness and health as you both shall live Until you’re made to wish you were dead Get a job, get married Get a house, reminisce Have kids, get buried There must be more to life than this Make the leap An afterthought, of the darkness we fell into Lo-o-ove is a noose for two Stick out your neck Tie the knot, become entangled till we turn blue Lo-o-ove is a noose for two As the happiness fades away with the years And the bitterness starts to augment In your houses built on foundations of debt Homes built to cover resentment Insecurities build up with time Ticking bomb of mutual loathing And every step you take is like a fucking landmine Here’s to your simmering betrothing Get a job, get married Get a house, reminisce Have kids, get buried There must be more to life than this There must be more to life than this There must be more to life than this There. Must. Be. More. To. Life Make the leap An afterthought, of the darkness we fell into Lo-o-ove is a noose for two Stick out your neck Tie the knot, become entangled till we turn blue Lo-o-ove is a noose for two Here’s to another failed union Here’s to another rolling stone Here’s to your dated institution Here’s to your future broken home She was hanging high with me She was hanging high with me We were hanging high
