Creep

Verse 1

Forward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
 
Living under house
Guess I'm living, I'm a mouse
All I got is time
Got no meaning, just a rhyme

I'm half the man I used to be
« [For] [this I feel as the dawn it fades] [to gray] »
Well, I'm half the man I used to be
Half the man I used to be

Verse 2

Feeling uninspired
Think I'll start a fire
Everybody run
Bobby's got a gun
 
Think you're kinda neat
Then she tells me I'm a creep
Friends don't mean a thing
Guess I'll leave it up to me, yeah
