about

this is the first recorded music i've ever put out in the real world on a real website! this is also the first thing i've ever mixed. here i am, steppin out

lyrics

i'm aware that this isn't very punk but i really want my mom to think i'm cool
i wanna prove that i'm capable of more than long-term couchsurfing and dropping out of school
maybe soon i won't be sleeping on a floor and i'll be getting paid enough to really eat
and i can't wait til the day when i can show my mother she was right to not give up on me

i am waiting for my heroic and explosive life to start
but i am chewing on the match and i am slow to let it spark
i am waiting for my brain to start seeing things
the way that they're supposed to be without a chemical dependency
i am waiting for my fingers to type out a kind reply
to my mom's emails but they cannot move and i do not know why
i am waiting for the stirring in my chest to loosen up
but i am stirring ever faster ever faster never done

and i need the atlantic and i need to call my parents
but i can't see how i'll ever afford a phone
and i need to live somewhere that doesn't feel like a hotel
but i can't see how i'll ever afford a home

i'm aware that this isn't very punk but i really want my mom to think i'm cool
i wanna prove that i'm capable of more than long-term couchsurfing and dropping out of school
maybe soon i won't be sleeping on a floor and i'll be getting paid enough to really eat
and i can't wait til the day when i can show my mother she was right to not give up on me
oh she was right to not give up on me
i am getting better don't give up on me
