Don't Open 'Til Leap Day

from by Jared Morris & The Nice Price



You said just be yourself
I don’t like myself that much
You said love yourself first
I think that that's enough

And after all we've done
this is all we get
I was looking for some action
I am my own assassin

And the shit I used to like
Don't seem worth my time
I see myself in you
I think that we should screw

You're in The Big Bubble
In school they called you trouble
Outside it's just rubble
I've mastered being subtle

Stand in line and be on time

I was looking of the sun
And that's when time just stopped
That's when the plot thickened
But I just felt sickened

I can't get a job here.
They all talked to each other
I'll have to change my name
Just to get an offer

There's pictures of her I
Some clear and some are hazy
You said you were an optimist
I said that your just lazy

I want to leave the place I live
Do you need a reason?
I try to do it right
I guilty of high treason

Stand in line and be on time

You said keep up the fight
The devil's getting dressed
He looks a lot like me
But I'm not impressed

You've been gone so long
I’m almost used to it
I don’t know whats true these days
I talk so much shit

I’ve been playing so long
I have arthritis in my fingers
I’m not great on guitar she said
Nor are you a good singer

I’m gonna set my car on fire
To get some heat to linger
I'll swing on a chandelier
And mimic The Snakefinger

Stand in line and be on time

Because its in my nature
Nature’s got me in a trance
She left me her number
Saying thanks for the romance

When I leave I'll leave a note
Don't open it until December
Maybe then it will make sense
By then you may remember

She held on to my hand
When I took my last breath
She rolled her eyes and sighed and said
Can’t we get on with this

If you see me on the road
Pretend it isn't me
I'll do the same for you
Like it was meant to be

Stand in line and be on time

I'll keep working
I'll keep working
I'll keep working
I'll keep working
