Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Life's too short to even care at all
Losing my mind, losing my mind, losing control
These fishes in the sea, that staring at me
Wet world aches for a beat of a drum

[Chorus 1]
If I could find a way to see this straight
I'd run away to some fortune that
I, I should have found by now
I'm waiting for this cough syrup
To come down, come down

[Verse 2]
Life's too short to even care at all
I'm coming up now, coming up now out of the blue
These zombies in the park, they're looking for my heart
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun

[Chorus 2]
If I could find a way to see this straight
I'd run away, to some fortune that
I, I should have found by now
So I run now to the things they said could restore me
Restore life the way it should be
I'm waiting for this cough syrup
To come down

[Bridge]
Life's too short to even care at all
I'm losing my mind, losing my mind, losing control

[Chorus 2]
If I could find a way to see this straight
I'd run away, to some fortune that
I, I should have found by now
So I run now to the things they said could restore me
Restore life the way it should be
I'm waiting for this cough syrup
To come down

[Outro]
One more spoon of cough syrup now
One more spoon of cough syrup now
