lyrics

It's never gonna happen if you schedule it
Deserve to be happy but no one gives a shit
"But I'm a survivor," that's what she said
I asked, "which war?", and she said "it's in my head"

You can make a necklace from piano wire
Become another lost voice in that empty choir

I know I'm gonna make it big someday
Make the right connections, maybe some radio play
But I'm a liar 'cuz it'll never be
Ain't got a dollar, just a fucked up family

You can't tour the world in a busted mini van
Just write your songs for yourself, record them when you can

Praying for change but you know it will never come
Just keep stalling out while the engine hums
It's all a sales pitch and you fell for it
A case full of snake oil and an empty bed

You can run for years and never take a step
Make all the payments and remain in debt
You can't find yourself through a telescope
We're all just killing time until our book is wrote
