I drag myself from my fallout shelter
And try to not feel blue
And every morning I wonder why I do
I got no purpose for being here now
It's just my job to survive
And check my pulse when I don't feel alive

So easily, you poison me
And leave me to scheme my way out of this tragedy

I spent some time feeling sorry about it
I could've earned a degree
It's just a joke that don't make much sense to me
But I can see what it's doing to me
I sit and stare at the wall
And ease my mind with the blues and alcohol

So fill my glass up, I'm pretty hard up
A whiskey sour, right on the hour

'Cause no one knows you're at your limits
No one knows you missed the mark
No one's really sure how lost you are

I guess it's just a mundane couple hours
I really shouldn't complain
It's just I hate it, it's making me insane
The more I think that I should be caring
The more I don't care at all
Come watch me bashing my head against the wall

So fill my glass up, I'm pretty hard up
Highballs are back, better than ever
