self-fulfilling catastrophe lyrics – good riddance

words spoken monotones
thereæ?¯ violence in your pretty homes
unfaded memories of the times we used to play
no colors anymore
thereæ?¯ laughter locked outside the door
the trucks go rolling by on the freeways just behind you

itæ?¯ a self-fulfilling catastrophe
sometimes i give myself the creeps
watch your problems disappear
and then reappear as mine

come take a look at me
iæ?¦ the poster boy for sympathy
i can’t find my way out of this place iæ?³e spent my life

some things we never tell
looking back it’s just as well
no comfort from anyone
a frightened child with no place to run
can you hear me calling out your name?
calling out but n*body’s there
