[Verse 1]
This is a very modern type of sad
This is a kind of new-age nepotism
I’m the Shackleton of feeling bad
Look at pain through my own weird prism
I guess the world is really gonna end
Talk shit about our impending doom
I am flirting with your ex-boyfriend
Seeing if armageddon gets him going too
Hear the country near my house is on fire
But I’m in no state to drive out there and fight it
Besides I am kind of burning with desire
Such an obvious line, why should I try and hide it? [Chorus]
Hold a match up to myself
And blow us all to hell
Let it end, combustible complaining
I am the eternal ex-boyfriend
I am the eternal ex-boyfriend
[Verse 2]
I was spiralling, checked myself into hospital
You showed up just to shave your legs in the sink
Took turns cutting each other’s hair in the cubicle
I was sleeping when you went and got a drink
You started smoking, was a weird decision
I wasn’t sure how well you were coping
And you kissed my forehead, I closed my eyes
Said, “I thought you were dead, what a pleasant surprise”
[Chorus]
Hold a match up to myself
And blow us all to hell
Let it end, combustible complaining
I am the eternal ex-boyfriend
[Outro]
Goodbye forever, maybe
I am the eternal ex-boyfriend
Goodbye forever, probably
I am the eternal ex-boyfriend
Goodbye forever, maybe
I am the eternal ex-boyfriend
Goodbye forever, probably
I am ex-boyfriend, eternal
