lyrics

His life just kind of got sewn up
What if that happens to me?
Who said there isn’t anything in this shit?
Besides, I got it for free

I guess I got kind of distracted
With somebody you don’t know
He’s looking to head for Alaska
And I told him, just go

We never really got bothered by that
Never got tired at all
Hide and get dazed or get thrown in the maze
It wasn’t that hard of a call

Everything’s rhetorical and part of a game
And she asks why I didn’t just do it
‘Cause clutching to tradition is like clutching to fame
It fades out and then you just look stupid

So where do you go
When the shades fall down?
And it feels like your mind might be working too well
To a home away from home
Where the verdict is wealth
And they talk about virginity and loving yourself

His life just kind of got sewn up
Tired and worn out like me
And nothing ever stays this golden way
Even though that’s how you want it to be

So where do you go when the shades fall down?
And it feels like your mind might be working too well?
