lyrics

I’d give it all up for the girl in the broken dream
Plastic feelings, fractured thoughts and littered memories
But I keep waking up in beds that don’t belong to me
I’m terrified of what I might become

No I haven’t got a clue what I am doing here
My intentions are unclear but that don’t matter
I’d mend the pieces but the pieces have all disappeared
Scattered far beyond the great divide

So I’ve tried to pray to God but no one’s listening
Life is but a joke that’s written as a tragedy
And bad things happen to even those who do still believe
They happen but they wont happen to me

Got a phone call from my doctor with some pressing news
Said, “you’ve got a broken heart and a bad attitude”
Then suggested I should probably quit smoking soon
I guess she called to say that I was fine

But still I fill the hole with substances and pretty things
And my notebook full of cynical analogies
Yes everything’s exactly just as bad as it seems
Like a burning fire hydrant in the snow

Now I’m retracing steps and placing blame where it’s deserved
Vulgar tendencies to wanderlust in Regensburg
I’ll find no solace that the story’s unoriginal

So I’ve tried to pray to God but no one’s listening
Life is but a joke that’s written as a tragedy
And bad things happen even to those who do still believe
They happen but they wont happen to me
