lyrics

I've got a knot in my stomach
I feel a lapse in my brain
I can't keep up with the topics
of this conversation
I have nothing to say

I think my tie is on backwards
I need to straighten my hair
I hope they don't look at my shoes
They're ratty and torn
but they are my only pair

Does anybody here like me?
Are they just being polite?
I wish I didn't have to be so drunk
just to feel alright

And by the time
they realize
that I'm
no longer here
I will have found
somewhere else to be

I've never been to a rooftop
or tasted such fancy drinks
I spent my life throwing stones at
these glass houses
I guess the joke is on me

I wish the kids from the old town
could see the view from this place
I'm sure the boys from the schoolyard
would have a big laugh
at this look on my face

Does anybody here like me?
Are they just being polite?
I wish I didn't have to be so drunk
just to feel alright

And by the time
they realize
that I'm
no longer here
I will have found
somewhere else to be
