Communication's staticky but somehow you still find
Through all of my jackassery a reason not to mind
And this is not some act, no calculation on my part
I pretty good with endings, but I don't know where to start
It's one thing to have tolerance, another to have faith
I've tried my best to give you my worst, how much will you take?
How much time before you find such a ludicrous cause lost?
And what do I gotta do to help you write me off?
Write me off
With a need for recognition, I am just like anyone
It's your subsequent extension of attention that I shun
So don't await me to reciprocate, I won't pretend to try
I'm pretty good at faking, but I will not tell a lie
Be careful with your confidence, it might just be misplaced
For every good impression, how much bullshit gets replaced?
How much trust must I exhaust before your towel gets tossed?
Yeah, and what do I gotta do to help you write me off?
Write me off
Sooner more than later everyone gets figured out
And I am no exception, it's the suspense I can do without
I'd live on pins and needles if I weren't so full of holes
Some things don't hold water, I'm a slow leak but the pressure grows
It's not to idealistic, it's not some praiseworthy conceit
But it's a bit more realistic if I pre-admit defeat
And all I might suggest is expectations have their cost
Yeah and what do I gotta do to help you write me off?
Write me off.
