lyrics

Everyday I'm reminded I was just a fad
Cause now I'm stuck in a box, next to your outdated crap
Every now and then I get to feeling betrayed
You wouldn't treat your other pets this way
I remember my life before I went to the store
I used to live in a yard, I always felt so ignored
But then you bought me and one week later set me aside
I'm so petrified

But I don't want to be some stupid geode
You can just string along
You probably think I'm an ignorant igneous
Well, you're wrong

Now I'm just sitting here, I'm collecting dust
Into the darkness I stare, with no illusion of trust
You made it clear that you never wanted me
My sediments exactly

I've tried to escape from this cardboard cage
But it’s hard to pull off without an arm or a leg
I hope that someday you’ll see, you’ll say you’re sorry you lied
Not an impulsive buy

But in twenty years you'll get nostalgic
And I'm the key to your past
And in a dwindling moment we're united
It won't last

Now I'm just sitting here, I'm collecting dust
Into the darkness I stare, with no illusion of trust
You made it clear that you never wanted me
My sediments exactly

I know you love your iPod and Droid phone
But where will they be in ten years?
They're gonna be in the garage with me
