  • Lyrics:   I got caught-up in your shit today, now I don’t know just where I am. ‘Cause I get lost in the words you say, and I don’t think you give a damn. ‘Cause you have everything you’ll ever need right inside of your own head. So, I’ll just sit right here and I’ll bleed. Maybe you’ll notice me when I’m dead. Here I am again in the same old rut. With or without you well it’s all the same. Something’s right here, but I don’t know what. And somewhere someone’s still to blame. So, bye-bye baby bye-bye. I’m sorry if I made you cry. But I just can’t live this lie…no, no. So, bye-bye baby bye-bye. It’s a mellowdrama we play — taking turns playin’ the fool. We act out our parts each and everyday, as dying embers we hope to fuel. But I’m no jester, no I’m no clown. And now I lay my masks aside. I think it’s about time I left this town. It’s time I stopped tryin’ to hide. Chorus And I said, bye-bye baby bye-bye. I’m sorry if I made you cry. It’s not as though I didn’t try…no, no. But bye-bye baby bye-bye. Bye-bye…
