  • Mother said come home
    Father said come home
    Sisters said come home
    So my friends said come home

    I said

    Let me be, I'm alright
    Can't you see, I'm just fine
    Little skinny, okay
    I'm asleep anyway

    Then I heard a voice
    Said "Son you have a choice"
    I then slapped my face

    Let me be, I'm okay
    I'm awake anyway
    It's too bright over there
    I can shift, cannot steer
    So I drive them away
    For a while, then I stay
    Little skinny, okay
    I'm awake anyway

    Now I have to go home
    Do as, when in Rome

    Let me be, I'm alright
    Can't you see I'm just fine
    Little skinny, okay
    I'm asleep anyway
    Let me be, I'm okay
    I'm awake anyway


    "Toby's still laughing. It sounds fuckin' pretty good!
    I'm laughing. That's tight as shit, what are you talkin' about?"
