My 22nd birthday song.


Oh boy I'm 22
and my dilemmas
haven't changed enough for
this to feel new

In my defense
I'm still intensely unprepared
although I read I shouldn't want
to live with my dad

But I'm not a parasite
I pay monthly for this paradise
I even refill the tray when there's no ice

But I'm pretty content
Although on content I haven't spent
Much time
I need a 9 to 5
Or at least a night time equivalent


On a yearly basis i keep bitchin' at you strangers
And its dangerous since all i need to solve my issues is some patience

and maybe Asians, to do my inbetweens
cause right now i am static, jagged, not smooth as can be

i don't mean to stop the sad fest
i know some are invested
in vests such nice attendants
but i cant repeat a sentence

but so it happens
it remains the same essence
essentially its only me
and my sense of evanescence

this time you're not relating
letting you know that right now
I'm happy where I am
but we don't talk about it - sacred cow

but I will thank and bow
and probably end up thinking how
I've been amusing the same crowd
for about a fucking decade so i guess I'm proud
