self inflicted stress lyrics – grim skunk

didn’t occur to me
that you’d even care
thought that i was free
anytime and everywhere
a lesson i can learn
and give one in return
listen to what you say
are you sure you feel that way

i can only give so much
as hard as i might try
but you can’t get enough
of anything to satisfy
no wonder you’re a mess
self inflicted stress
can’t get no relief
condemn yourself to grief

now i see the light
that lies within your eyes
it’s not that you’re not right
but you must realize
we waste our time and fight
it’s not always black or white
a zone between exists
no matter how hard i insist
you’d rather look away
push me on the outside
make me swallow my pride
than pretend that it’s okay
