lyrics

I'm not a sister but I have one
I'm a mister but no one calls me that
I get a blister every time I work
I play twister every time I work
I get tangled in myself
I get mangled by the game
I've been wrangled by the lots
I've jangled all my chains
I'm mild by my nature
I'm wild in my habits
I'm styled for my comfort
I'm a child don't you know?

I'm not much for trepidation but that's just who I am
I've noticed I'm not much of what I tried to be
I work and then I'm lazy
I work and then I'm lazy
I work and then I'm lazy
I work, then I get lazy
I've been drunk
I've been stoned
I've been lusting of most of my life
I'm tired
I'm tired
I'm tired

But it's okay
I'm just fine
I can do this all the time
I've been doing this all my life
It's okay
I'm alright
I can sleep tomorrow night
I've been doing it all my life

I am ashamed of everything I do
I can do no right
I think most clearly when I can't speak
I've known every single answer
I've been in charge
I've been out ranked
I've been old
I'll still have been young
I've just been trying to learn everything

But it's okay
I'm just fine
I can do this all the time
I've been doing this all my life
It's okay
I'm alright
I can sleep tomorrow night
I've been doing it all my life
It's okay
I'm just fine
I can do this all the time
I've been doing this all my life
It's okay
I'm alright
I can sleep tomorrow night
I've been doing it all my life

I just want to figure it out
I just want to figure it out
I just want to figure it out
I just want to figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out
