    "Longview" Lyrics:
    Sit around and watch the tube, but nothing's on
    I change the channels for an hour or two
    Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit
    I'm sick of all the same old shit
    In a house with unlocked doors
    And I'm fucking lazy

    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored I'm going blind
    And I smell like shit

    Peel me off this Velcro seat and get me moving
    I sure as hell can't do it by myself
    I'm feeling like a dog in heat
    Barred indoors from the summer street
    I locked the door to my own cell
    And I lost the key

    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored I'm going blind
    And I smell like shit

    I got no motivation
    Where is my motivation?
    No time for the motivation
    Smoking my inspiration

    Sit around and watch the phone, but no one's calling
    Call me pathetic, call me what you will
    My mother says to get a job
    But she don't like the one she's got
    When masturbation's lost its fun
    You're fucking lonely

    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored
    I'm going blind
    And loneliness has to suffice
    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    I was slipping away to paradise
    Some say, "Quit or I'll go blind."
    But it's just a myth

                        Once I was one of the “true punx” and didn’t like this band because of their popularity. Now I respect them and seek out their music to brighten my day. I’m sorry for being a dick. Can we all just go back to 2009 so we can hear this song for the first time again?

                                        Overanalyzing at it's best, with this song. It's amazing how few people understand basic logic. The masturbation line serves to emphasize the thesis of the song (which is extraordinary boredom and lack of satisfaction in life). The lip-biting is not an orgasm. Stop with the overanalyzing.
