Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Life's too short to even care at all, whoa oh-oh
I'm losing my mind, losing my mind, losing control
These fishes in the sea, they're staring at me, whoa oh-oh oh, whoa-oh oh
A wet world aches for a beat of a drum, oh-whoa oh, oh

[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, oh-whoa oh
I'm coming up now, coming up now out of the blue, oh-oh, oh-oh oh
These zombies in the park, they're looking for my heart, oh-whoa oh, whoa-oh, oh
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun, oh-whoa oh, oh, oh

[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

And 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, oh whoa-oh
I'm losing my mind, losing my mind, losing control

[Instrumental]

[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, oh whoa-oh
One more spoon of cough syrup now, whoa oh, whoa
