lyrics

Lately everybody's got their shit together
They walk with one foot in front of the other
and stroll through their day to day
with no need to be covered
And me, I just stumble 'round
like my ankles are broken
and I can't make up the change for
a subway token

'Cause my brain picks itself apart
'til my eyes feel like crying and I
live in fear of my father dying
You sleep comfortably
under stars of your cozy god
and I lie here waiting

You'll get in your car and you'll drive to church,
tune in and out, and they'll give you your homework
You'll see how many rules you can absorb
without asking why
And I'm asking why? What's the cost?
Will it bring us any closer?
And what's the harm in
simply saying, "No sir"

'Cause my brain picks itself apart
'til my eyes feel like crying and I
live in fear of my father dying
You sleep comfortably
under stars of your cozy god
and I lie here waiting
