Originally released as track 4 of 4 on the "Turkish Techno / Troublemake" split 7-inch in 2009.

I was set to move to DC and go to law school, but I was thinking maybe I'd be better off just shooting heroin and eating pizza in Florida. I could write more seriously about this, but I'm not gonna.


maybe I could live in Sarasota until the day I die
so long as I got out on tour every now and then, I don’t think I’d mind
with the mattress here i've got no qualms sleeping on the living room floor
and if it's still cheap i won't mind to eat every meal at the shitty pizza place next door

what’s my plan b anyway - chasing after a future on easy street?
complacent and safe in a boring place doesn't sound so great to me
but I’m such a fucking coward, I already know what I’m
gonna do, I’ll go to school, hate myself, and just talk shit the whole time

sometimes I feel like waiting on time to pass is all i do
through the nights, through a lease, through these endless years of school
I feel so paralyzed to make up my mind, though I know I could
make the choice that's right for me, but so far no good

having something to lose is not something I’ve ever been used to
and now it’s making me hate each day
holding on to all of this seems more trouble than it's worth
i'd rather build my life with the shit that other people throw away

I do what i hate everyday 'cause i'm piss scared of regret
but either way, I’m pretty sure that’s what I’ll get
if i could pull myself together maybe i' could just up and quit
maybe i need a boost or maybe i'm just full of shit
