​Something Soon

This song is by Car Seat Headrest and appears on the album My Back Is Killing Me Baby (2011) and on the album Teens of Style (2015).

Original video
Biting my clothes to keep from screaming
Taking pills to keep from dreaming
I want to break something important
I want to kick my dad in the shins

I was referring to the present in past tense
It was the only way that I could survive it
I want to close my head in the car door
I want to sing this song like I'm dying

Heavy boots on my throat, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon
I can't talk to my folks, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon

All of my fingers are froze, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon
Only one change of clothes, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon
My head is, my head is, my head is

Stay inside all this winter
Filling out forms from a busted printer
I want to talk like Raymond Carver
(An advertisement cries out)
I want to turn down the goddamn TV
("He should have gone to Jared's")

Binging on the latest sitcom
Feeling guilty every second it's on
I want put my foot through a window
(I document my mind loss)
I want to romanticize my headfuck
(Through instruments of wordplay)

Heavy boots on my throat, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon
I can't talk to my folks, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon

All of my fingers are froze, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon
Only one change of clothes, I need
I need something soon, I need something soon
My head is, my head is, my head is
My head is, my head is, my head is

Oh, oh
Oh, oh (Let's burn this house down)
Oh, oh (Let's burn this house down)
Oh, oh (Let's burn this house down)
Oh, oh (Let's burn this house down)
(Let's burn this house down)
(Let's burn this house down)
(Let's burn this house down)
