Uncomfortable (lyrics), Simon Spire

Uncomfortable

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

 

I’m uncomfortable in this world

I don’t know how they do it

I’m uncomfortable in this world

Am I gonna get through it?

 

‘Cause it’s cold outside and dark as night

And everything I do

Is only good for messing up the world that I once knew

 

I’m uncomfortable in this world

I don’t know how to do it anymore

*

I’m uncomfortable in this world

How long can I do it?

I’m uncomfortable in this world

I can’t bring myself to pursue it

 

‘Cause I’m tired of hearing all the lies

Particularly mine

The only thing I still believe is belief cannot outlive time

 

I’m uncomfortable in this world

I don’t know how to do it anymore

*

All the effort comes to naught

All the work and clever thought

Screw it, I don’t need it anymore

 

I’ve battled the world but the world is winning

I’ve battled beyond a tale worth living

Take this thing and let it go

This thing called “me” I’ll watch it go

*

I’m uncomfortable in this world

I don’t know how they do it

I’m uncomfortable in this world

And I’ve tried and tried to get through it

 

‘Cause it used to be I owned my shit

But now my shit owns me

The only thing I can control it seems is playing me

 

I’m uncomfortable in this world

And I don’t know how to do it

*

I’ve battled the world but the world is winning

I’ve battled beyond a tale worth living

Take this thing and let it go

This thing called “me” I’ll watch it go

And look what’s left, it’s just so—
