Can't find a goddamn mailbox
On these last twelve blocks
To mail this goddamn letter
To my family back home
Heard they're down on their luck
And if I know them well
They'll peel the goddamn stamp off
Get their good two cents for it back

I think a thousand different things
At any time
Buy not one single thing about you
Has yet to cross my mind
It takes a special kind of hurt
To block you out
But it's what's best for me
My friends and family tell me that

The cork's stuck in my throat
I can't let my voice out
The cork's stuck in my throat
You keep speaking for me now

Feeling brings me shame
Feeling freaks me out
I'll do anything for feeling like I'm not
A ghost without a sheet
A mind without a home
I buy books that bring me comfort
Even though

I need to find a mailbox
So I can mail myself
All the things left to say
To help me live without
You're a broken record
Guess I'll take the day
Listen to this on repeat
