Lord of the Rings

lyrics

there are songs I’ll never listen to again
cause the weight of my hate for your weight bearing down on me
is just too strong, just too strong

sometimes I cry when someone asks me out to ramen
cause I can’t face the traces of your face looking back at me
it went on too long, way too long

it’s automatic
the way you cloud my head with your memory
you’re so charismatic
but you’re min-maxed to bullshit I want to be free

there are songs I’ll never listen to again
but you can’t take all the things—
that make me the way I’ve always been
you can’t take lord of the rings
and you won’t win this game
Jammin James

it’s weird cause I’m so strong and awesome
but I let you lay the ways that I say that i ought to be
inside my head, in my head

I shut up cause I didn’t want the gossip,
but my shrink she says the things I think get the best of me
and I should let it out instead, so I let it out instead

it’s a kind of magic
how you follow me around from an entire different city
and it’s kind of tragic
but I hope you’ve grown a lot since the days that you hurt me

I don’t care if you are happy now,
I just hope that you are victimless
I don’t care if you are happy now,
I just hope that you are victimless

there are songs I’ll never listen to again
but you can’t take all the things—
that make me the way I’ve always been
you can’t take lord of the rings
and you won’t win this game
Jammin James
