It’s hard to believe
This is all that’s left of me
Older than the oldest guy you know

Computer on my back
Sitting here in class
All the girls are popping from their clothes

I just can’t pay attention anymore

On Western holy ground
Can’t escape the sound
of stupid hippies and their dumb guitars

not much here to do
but sit around and think of you
why does Bellingham have to be so far away

I just can’t pay attention anymore

I’m almost there
I’m all washed up
I’m almost done with everything

I just can’t pay attention anymore

what do I do now
with a brain that’s slowly burning out
I’m pretty sure that I don’t care

Eat a piece of cake
What’s it gonna take
