Track Name: Letdown
I was new
I was born, given cheap gin, and laid in the crib
As I drank from a chipped mug and felt it in my blood
And when I became this neurotic portrait of post-adolescence,
I figured I should stay for a while, for old time's sake
And find someone to blame

I came here for answers, and I guess I got them
Still chasing after what I thought I wanted

I guess this was my own mistake
Chasing a promise you said that you'd never break
I'm chasing pieces of what you said - just disappointment

I walked home alone
Through a sea of thoughts that were wasted on me
I thought I'd let you know that I tried my best
But everyone's fake, vain, selfish and full of shame
A flame that will burn out again
Fake, vain, selfish and I'm to blame
Because you know that I was just the same

I guess this was my own mistake
Chasing a promise you said that you'd never break
I'm chasing pieces of what you said - just broken pieces
