Twin Size Mattress
The Front Bottoms Lyrics


This is for the lions living in the wiry broke down frames of my friends bodies
When the flood water comes, it ain't gonna be clear
It's gonna look like mud
But I will help you swim
I will help you swim
I'm gonna help you swim

This is for the snakes and the people they bite
For the friends I've made; for the sleepless nights
For the warning signs I've completely ignored
There's an amount to take, reasons to take more
It's no big surprise you turned out this way
When they close their eyes and prayed you would change
And they cut your hair, and sent you away
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay
You said, hey man, I love you but no fucking way
I'm sure that we could find something for you to do on stage
Maybe shake a tambourine or when I sing, you sing harmonies

This is for the lake that me and my friends swim in
Naked and dumb on a drunken night
And it should've felt good
But I can hear the Jaws theme song on repeat in the back of my mind
Make sure you kiss your knuckles before you punch me in the face
There are lessons to be learned, consequences for all the stupid things I say
And it is no big surprise you turned out this way
The spark in her eyes
The look on your face
I will not be late

I'm sure that we could find something for you to do on stage
Maybe shake a tambourine or when I sing you sing harmonies

I wanna contribute to the chaos
I don't wanna watch and then complain
'Cause I am through finding blame
That is the decision that I have made

She hopes I'm cursed forever to
Sleep on a twin-sized mattress
In somebody's attic or basement my whole life
Never graduating up in size to add another
And my nightmares will have nightmares every night
Oh, every night, every night

Okay Buddy

If you're seeing this, I want you to know:
You are not a burden.
You deserve good days and happiness.
You are you, whether they like it or not.
There is someone who would miss you forever.
There is someone who is proud of you.
Physical form isn't you, your soul is.
You are an individual among billions, there is no other you.
You are loved.
You are wanted.
It is okay to ask for help.

It's no big surprise you turned out this way
When they closed their eyes,
and prayed you would change
And they cut your hair,
and sent you away
You stopped by my house,
the night you escaped
Which tears in my eyes;
I begged you to stay
You said
"Hey man, I love you...
....but no fucking way "

I have no idea what this song even means but I feel it

•Izuku• Midoriya

sheeboop i thought it was about someone who came out as part of the lgbtq+ community, but their family wasn’t supportive of that, so they sent them away

(thats also just my opinion/way of seeing this song)

Bentewells I am god

@sheeboop I thought he said it was about his gay friend being sent to a catholic school?

If you feel it then you do...

@The Ben Experience they’re called track marks

It’s for the lions in your friends corpse, obviously.
