Thanks to Casey Starr for the title. Not knowing how to act.


I get scared when you're upset.
You're dis-repaired, and I'm abrupt.
You take the means and ring them out bone dry.
Is this how it feels in letting go?
A cacophony of candid notes.
No space to breath.
Its pushing on my spine.
And I'm bone dry.

If I can't speak then I won't choke.
If you don't mean, then I don't know.
I hook complacency up like a drip to my arm
to force me from anger so I won't do harm.
I'm just confused because I'm slow.
Was it for me, or am I wrong.
So put the speech like medicine onto my tongue,
Because that's where I'm from.

And I want yesterday
I want yesterday.
When I was young.
And I want yesterday
I want yesterday.
When I was dumb.
