Eric Nizgretsky on “Something Better:”

“It’s really about the ultimate goal of creating a life I can be proud of while learning to cope with those pesky, looming doubts. Over the years I’ve been forced to take a look back at my parents’ failed marriage, among other things, and I guess my fear is that the relationships I hold dear in my life will inevitably end in similar ways. It’s those potential setbacks and uncertainties that’ve served as motivation to channel my fears into something positive, or rather, ‘something better.'”

Something Better

I know what I’m expected to say
I guess you like it best that way
Yet again I think I’m trying to find
Something Better

You were laying on a hospital bed
I knew what coulda been instead
Suddenly, another one just like me
What a nightmare

Shouting out something obscene
30 strangers had been staring at me
Cause I couldn’t even hide it at all
How pathetic

It’s like picking traits right out of a bag
Half of them I wish I’d give back
If you need me I’ll be trying to find
Something better

Somehow I would
Somehow I wouldn’t change
If sometimes I could just
Play the sideline, Pay me no mind

Trying not to say it’s the end
I wish my parents could be friends
But you can’t rewind to get what you want
Say the word, we’ll all go back in time

But then I get out of bed
Regretting all the shit that I said
Fucking crying out the name of a girl
That I’m dating

Somehow I would
Somehow I wouldn’t change
If sometimes I could just
Play the sideline, Pay me no mind
