    Cut it out
    your self-inflicted pain is getting too routine
    The crowds are catching on
    to the self-inflicted song
    Well, here we go again:
    the art of acting weak
    Fall in love to fail to boost your cd sales
    and that cd sells
    yeah what a hit
    You've got to repeat it
    you gotta sink to swim

    First you don't, you don't succeed
    you gotta recreate your misery
    we all know art is hard
    young artists have gotta starve
    Try and fail and try again
    the comforts of repetition
    Keep churning out those hits
    'til it's all the same old shit

    Oh, a second verse
    Well, color me fatigued
    i'm hiding in the leaves in the cd jacket sleeves
    Tired of entertaining some double-dipped meaning
    a soft-serve analogy
    Those drunken, angry slurs
    in 31 flavors

    Gotta sink, gotta sink, gotta sink to swim
    immerse yourself in rejection
    Regurgitate some sorry tale
    about a boy who sells his love affairs
    You gotta fake fake fake the pain
    You better make make make it sting
    You're gonna break break break a leg
    when you get on stage
    and they scream your name:
    Oh cursive is so cool!

    You gotta sink gotta sink gotta sink to swim
    impersonate greater persons
    'cause we all know art is hard
    when we don't know who we are
