about

I wish I sort of thought harder about the chorus lyrics. I don't think they make sense. Maybe they do. Not sure. Stupid ass title too

lyrics

Nightmares won't elude me now
What's been lost just can't be found
Her image still lingers in my head
Echoing in back and forth
I don't want this anymore
Why cant I just let go?

What happened to innocence?
Everyone's so malevolent
I can't describe it myself,
Guilty of the same crime
And I am always doing time,
Always serving my punishment

And all those memories
Lend itself to remembrance
Do you remember all those times?
Or to you am I dead?

So stupid, young, and dumb
What the hell is real love?
Why don't we just slow down?
Well, nobody understands
Hell, I don't understand
Does anybody know the answer yet?

What happened to innocence?
Everyone's so full of shit
I can't describe it myself,
Guilty of the same crime
And I am always doing time,
Always serving my punishment

And all those memories
Lend itself to remembrance
Do you remember all those times?
Or to you am I dead?
