lyrics

Couldn’t get out of bed today
So I got half of season one out the way
Of that highly overrated show that depends on
Suspension of disbelief
6 hours later I’m still depressed
I don’t understand why everybody’s so obsessed
Like the wise old lady said, “Where’s The Beef?”

Well I’ve spent my life inside my head
Never thought it was gonna work out
Got a perfect wife and a brand new kid
Can’t believe it was ever in doubt
The whole thing should be humbling
Still I wonder what it’s all about
You know with me
Something’s gotta be wrong
Something’s gotta be wrong

Last year I started seeing a shrink
Thought I’d get a stranger’s thoughts about the way I think
An hour every other week he sits in a chair
And asks me how I feel
I say, “I try to be good but the world isn’t fair
And middle class values never got me anywhere.”
He says, “Julian, you gotta take shit, that’s the deal”

Well I’ve spent my life inside my head
Pretty sure that’s it gonna work out
Got a decent wife and an average kid
I’ll give them both the benefit of the doubt
I guess I should be grateful
Still I wonder what it’s about
You know with me
Something’s gotta be wrong
Something’s gotta be wrong

Glass is half empty I don’t care what you heard
Call me a failure or some other fancy word
I dissected my dreams
Saw their stitches and seams
For me happiness means
That nothing good
Is as good as it seems

Well I spend my life inside my head
I’m forever trying to find a way out
Yes I love my wife and I love my kid
It’s the only thing that’s never in doubt
If true north’s the best direction
Heading south is what I’m all about
You know with me
My whole life long
Something’s gotta be wrong
Something’s gotta be wrong
Something’s gotta be wrong
