- Nothing To Be Really
Sad About

- ( the problem with me )


the problem with me
is that although
I'm an artist
im too responsible
to be dangerous
too fortunate
to be tragic
too friendly
to be mysterious
no drugs, no alcohol
dark music
slashed wrists
I'm smart
and positive enough
not to hate the world
so although im creative
i'm not attractive
to that smart angsty girl
with a death wish

the problem with me
is that although
I'd like to think of myself
as a business minded
I'm too funny
to be taken seriously
too nice
to be an authority
I don't look proper
in preppy clothes
And as hardworking
as I am sincere
I still cant seem to
have a skyrocket career.
