Things I Want Are Things I Need

I’ve been standing in the dark here for hours trying to catch a break
but it’s easier than lying for hours tied down with a light in your face
and if I knew what you wanted from me it be easier for me to believe
that the things that I’m wanting are not the things I need
but for now the things I want are the things I need

there’s a vacuum in the corner closet would you mind grabbing it for me?
cause my place gets so dusty and dirty it’s hard on me to breathe
and if I knew what you wanted from me it be easier on me to believe
that the things that I’m wanting are not the things I need
but for now the things I want are the things I need
oh and this is not confessional I confess to you the terrible things I do
yeah times have been rough we’ve encountered some bad luck
but I swear that I love you
what can I do to prove this to you?

a handful of flesh, a filthy light socket, imagine your mind
10:30 in the evening for starters cut loose you’re losing your mind
but if I knew what they’re wanting from me it be easier on me to believe
that the things that I’m wanting are not the things I need
but for now the things I want are things I need
