I woke up today
Surrounded by blackness
The small morning sun
Devoured the process

It's always been fine
When I get a bit nervous
And it's hard to say
But I feel a bit weightless

The more I admit
I feel a bit anxious
The more I go on
The less I can face this

And those rotten things
That live in our shadow
We walk on the line
Of death and the gallows

In hope that we clear
A path we can follow

It's the worst damn day (it doesn't hurt that much)
Of my life
I made a mess today (it doesn't hurt that much)
But I'm alright (it doesn't hurt that much)

When I was young
The world it was smaller
The cities were vast
The buildings were taller

I felt really strong
My parents seemed stronger
My life has a way
It showers with greatness

Then takes it away
Those pieces that made us
Then teach us the things
You'd never imagine

We all get the same
The memories, the burdens
The pictures we made
They still form a pattern

They cautiously say
Does it all matter?

It's the worst damn day (it doesn't hurt that much)
Of my life
I made a mess today (it doesn't hurt that much)
But I'm alright (it doesn't hurt that much

It's the worst damn day (it doesn't hurt that much)
Of my life
I made a mess today (it doesn't hurt that much)
But I'm alright (it doesn't hurt that much

It's the worst damn day (it doesn't hurt that much)
Of my life
I made a mess today (it doesn't hurt that much)
But I'm alright (it doesn't hurt that much

It's the worst damn day (it doesn't hurt that much)
Of my life
I made a mess today (it doesn't hurt that much)
But I'm alright
