Drove all night to get away to nowhere fast and back again
Painted the underside of my nails with the ink inside my head
I'm ink without a paper or a pen, mindset on leaving so

Call me a dropout, baby, call me anything
Say I should grow up, show up to a job I hate
I'm not one for settling down
I've been on the upswing lately
It took a while and it's all gonna fall apart again if I stay
So if I may I'm calling to quit right now

I'm ink with every last good intent making a god damn mess so
Call me a sellout, baby, call me anything
Say that I best invest in something I really hate if I don't wanna sleep on the ground
Leaning on a ladder lately and it could fail, it could fall, it could break me
But any which way it takes me
I'll come back to you

I'm ink in a line through every page, I made the craters on the moon and they made me so
Call me crazy, baby, call me anything
I left my job, my school, my band, god damn I'm beat trashing everybody's plans for me
I've been on my way to a better year
It took a while and I've still got a ways to go
Are you friend or foe these days I really can't tell

I'm ink bled onto the next page rushing to get out of my shell
