lyrics

(this song is in drop-d. pick 4th, 3rd and 2nd strings for verse)
(D-G/B-Asus)
Life sure had its moments, but now it's time to move on
and don't think of it as dying, think of it as graduation,
cuz after a certain age, you hope for a living wage, that's all,
and living without passion like I am's hardly living at all.

open 4th string
Low string: 5-7-12-10
So what's the difference if I go now or in 2020,
when I look back at the last 7 years and don't see any reason to stay here?
(Low string: 3-0)

(D-G/B-Asus)
But before I go I'm gonna do some things,
and I don't mean like catching up on my reading,
cuz when you know you're about to die you can get away with anything.
There's so much you can do when you're not worried about losing,
like insult people a lot more or take things from the corner store,
or pee in my hallway, mostly being a jerk is what I have planned for my last days.
So maybe you won't mind as much when I go cuz I'll be such
a bastard that you won't miss me and then my plan will have worked perfectly.

(open 4th string
Low string: 5-7-12-10)
Cuz what's the difference
if I go
now or in 2020?
Or maybe
3010
cuz who knows what the world will be like then
(open 4th string
Low string: 0-2-7-5)
I think I know
it'll be the same
but a little worse just like every day
and no
I don't think
I'm gonna miss anything but drinking.
(4th string:12-11-9-12-11-9-7-5-4-7-5-4-2
open 6th string)

(open 4th string
Low string: 5-7-12-10)
Cuz what's the difference
if I go
now or in 2020
when I look back at the last 7 years and don't see any reason to stay here?
(Low string: 3-0)
