My tea's gone cold I'm wondering why
I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window
And I can't see at all

    There isn't anything about this song that could be improved: that sample, the story, the beat, everything is just perfect... [6] Masterpiece. [2] Good song with a sad message, obsessive fans can be scary. [2]

    I hope you get to read this letter, I just hope it reaches you in time - before you hurt yourself, I think that you'll be doing just fine if you relax a little, I'm glad I inspire you but Stan, why are you so mad?
