I once thought I could get my head in the game I had to give up I was going insane It was a nasty blow but it's better to know I once thought I could get my head in the game We used to go dancing shake worries away it set everything right until night became day and we all hurried home hoping soon to forget almost seeing the sun rise until the sun set Now maps make me nervous they fill me with dread How they seem to tease with the lives I won't have Passed on too many chances of playing the fool I doubt there's a heaven so this has to do

Soft-spoken men In touch with their feelings Slowly spending their miles Mild-mannered men You've met them for dinner They dress up ever so perfectly Playlists and podcasts Comfortable couches There's some out there made for each of us But not other people They don't know what they're doing They wont do, so you tell yourself You've been spending way too much time alone Soft-spoken preachers Of life changing mantras Make their way right past your heart As do throwers of tantrums Who speak from their livers And just make you even surer that Playlists and podcasts Comfortable couches There's some out there made for each of us But not other people They don't know what they're doing But they'll talk until the music stops You've been spending way too much time alone

Were I to have been a tiger I suppose I could do nothing wrong There'd be no allergies to haunt me And no words to weave into my songs My instincts could betray me But I wouldn't moan about it My instincts would betray me But I’d never dare to blame them And all these hours I can taste They're mine and mine alone to waste All these hours I can taste They're mine and mine alone to waste Were I to have been vacation I would be no tropical resort I'd be a beat up little cottage I would be a quirky mountain lodge You'd be so glad to see me Something to write home about You'd be so glad to meet me But so much more relieved to leave me And all these hours I can taste They're mine and mine alone to waste All these hours I can taste They're mine and mine alone to waste
