lyrics

Welcome to the pharmacy, we got just what you need
To mix all of your frustrations with a bit of irony
I’ll put on my sarcastic smile and show you how I bleed
I’ll make you forget what you think you know about me

You’re upset again?
Well, you’re not alone
I’ve got the Devil on my side, so I have demons of my own
And you will never understand what it’s like to miss home
But maybe you could if you would just pick up the phone

There was a time when you’d give me your word and
I could count on you to follow through, ‘cause I deserve it
If you are the endgame and I am the start, then
I actually hope that somewhere in between I fall apart

Call me a loser and that’s exactly what I’ll be
‘Cause I lose everything, from your interest to my keys
Call me a loser and that’s exactly what I’ll be

Welcome to the pharmacy, we got just what you need
To mix all of your frustrations with a bit of irony
I’ll put on my sarcastic smile and show you how I bleed
I’ll make you forget what you think you know about me

Hold on, I’d like to propose a toast
To broken promises and broken bones
Hiding in your closet under piles of clothes
Yeah, but everybody knows
I’m a disaster. Hang me from the rafters.
Maybe then I’ll finally get: “Happy Ever After”
Write my epitaph on the headboard of my bed
And hopefully tomorrow morning, I’ll wake up dead
[Is this what you wanted?]

Welcome to the pharmacy, we got just what you need
To mix all of your frustrations with a bit of irony
I’ll put on my sarcastic smile and show you how I bleed
I’ll make you remember that you don’t know shit about me

Call me a liar and that’s exactly what I’ll be
I’ll lie with Death if just to make you fucking scared of me
Call me a liar and that’s exactly what I’ll be

Growing up, I was afraid of the world
And you were the one who always wanted more
But while I had monsters under my bed
You’ve always had them in yours
I guess I wished that I was your monster
I guess I’ve just always been your ghost
So why am I the one feeling haunted by you?
Is this what you wanted?
