lyrics

Surrounded by the consequences
Years of excess
Feels like a lifetime of outfits
Is all I have left
The gun my daddy bought me
Is up there on the shelf
I hid the bullets in a boot
So no one kills herself

In my closet
Where I hide away until I feel ok
If you could see what's behind this door
It's such a mess
I'm laying on the floor
Hugging my knees
Rocking back and forth
But you'll never find me hanging
In my closet

My maintenance is diligence
I can't afford to think
Got the luxury of living
But sometimes I start to sink
Then I'm slipping and sliding
Instead of trudging through the muck
Complete control goes out the window
And I don't give a...

In my closet
Where I'll hide away and there I'll stay
Don't come knocking on this door
What a mess all over the floor
Hugging my knees
Rocking back and forth
But you'll never find me hanging
In my closet

Pull yourself together
It could be worse and it could be better

Everyone has got a line
Mine is long and it is wide
But once it has been crossed
It ain't no thrill ride
I got too much to lose
But I'm losing it again
Now what? I give up
I'm going in

To my closet
Where I'll hide away until I feel ok
Don't come knocking on this door
It's such a mess, laying the floor
Hugging my knees
Rocking back and forth
But you'll never find me hanging
In my closet
In my closet
In my closet
You'll never find me hanging there
