This Week The Trend Lyrics

by Relient K

And this week's the trend
Was to not wake up till 3 p.m.
I picked the few conscious hours that I chose to spend
And slept away the rest of them

And this week the trend
Was to crash and burn and then return again
To practice the life that I pretend
Provides enough to get me through the weekend

So I say
Get me a solution and watch me run with it
And then You gave
You gave me a solution what have I done with it?

'Cause I was absolutely sure
I had it all figured out way back then
And now it's this minute, this hour, this day

And this week the trend
Was to backstab every single one of my friends
And leave a voicemail message trying to make amends
All the while hoping things work out in the end

And this week's the trend
Was to borrow all the strength that You could lend
To keep my head above the water and not descend
Back to where I said I'd never go again

So I say
Give me a solution and watch me run with it
And then You gave
You gave me a solution what have I done with it?

'Cause I was absolutely sure
I had it all figured out way back then
But after this day it's this week
All over again

And I just want to get mugged at knifepoint
To get cut enough to wake me up
'Cause I know that I don't want to die
Sitting around watching my life go by

And what we take from this is what we'll get
And we haven't quite figured it out just yet
Because all of us are all too stuck
Strapped to a chair watching our lives blow up
Stuck watching our lives blow up
