lyrics

Not gunna find my way today
Not gunna find my way any time soon
I'm looking to rent apartments online from people who might kill me...
or just steal my money

Not gunna sleep it off tonight
Not gunna wake up feeling better in the morning
I'm scared out of my mind and that's not going anywhere
I'm scared out of my mind that I'm not going anywhere

Of all the things I've done to myself and everyone
I think the worst is yet to come
Grin and bear it, grin and bear it
I've yet to truly fuck up so it's bound to soon come up
It's a waiting loaded gun
I can feel it, grin and bear it
Everyone

So this is the moment I planned for, my occasion to rise
But I'm looking for reasons to lay down right where I'm standing
So that's all I'll find
Don't have a real job or any prospects, I'm just singing this song
And I used to think it enough to be passionate and optimistic
But I'm twenty-two and I'm dead wrong

Of all the things I've done to myself and everyone
I think the worst is yet to come
Grin and bear it, grin and bear it
I've yet to truly fuck up so it's bound to soon come up
It's a waiting loaded gun
I can feel it, grin and bear it
Everyone

Don't know how to let go, don't know how to move on
Don't know how to let go, don't know how to move on
Don't know how to let go, don't know how to move on
Don't know how to let go, don't know how to move on
Don't know how to let go

Of all the things I've done to myself and everyone
I think the worst is yet to come
Grin and bear it, grin and bear it, grin and bear it

Oh I'm a waiting loaded gun
I can feel it, grin and bear it
Of all the things I've done to myself and everyone
I think the worst is yet to come, I can feel it
Grin and bear it everyone
