Verse

It's the start of a story that I've told a million times
But it still has a million endings
It's the middle of a story that I made up on the spot
And I don't know where to go

It's the blinding speed of thinking that gets me every time
So I surrender to my skull
It's the hundred thousandth variation
Of my most recent web of lies
And you're staring at me blankly

Pre Chorus

God, I know this better than anyone
Telling you that school is going great
And yeah, I'm happy with my long term girlfriend
And no, I don't like boys

Chorus

With my arms held perpendicular to me
I could tell that you look less ridiculous
Standing therе with yours crossed, scowl wavering
I could tell that I lookеd just enough to play the part

Verse

Of Connor Carmody on his most recent escapades
Loving his old job
It's the middle of the shift and my feet are wet and aching
It's the middle of the story and I lost my train of thought
It's the falling action of a tale where I got laid and made money
It's the start of a story that I've told a million times
And it still has a million endings

Pre Chorus

And no, I don't want to repeat myself
But I know there's merit in doing that
Because then you won't get caught when you're telling someone
You still work at Sam's Club

Chorus

With my arms held perpendicular to me
I could tell that you look less ridiculous
Standing there with yours crossed, scowl wavering
I could tell that I looked just enough to play the part

Outro

It's the end of a story that I've told a million times
And I've jury rigged an ending
It's the start of a story and I'll tell it to you straight
The hardest part of living is the reflection that I face
And the honesty that it brings
Not that I would be listening
And the heart of this story is I'll still tell it a million times
But it only has one ending
