"Hanged" lyrics - BO BURNHAM


I hung myself today. Hanged? Whatever,
The point is I hanged myself today and I'm still

I feel fine. Just bored. I keep hoping that
Someone will come home and cut me down
But then I keep remembering that if I knew
Someone like that I wouldn't be up here. Bit
Ironic, right? Or is that not ironic? I read
Somewhere that, like, anything funny is,
In some way, ironic. But I don't know if it's
Funny or not. I don't think my brain owns
"Funny", you know?

I feel taller. I like that.
I've never been away from my shadow for
This long. It had always clung to my feet,
Parting momentarily for a quick dive into
The swimming pool. But never for five
Hours. I like it. There's three feet of space
Between my two and the floor.

I wanted something this morning. I may be
Stuck. But at least I'm three feet closer to it.
