framed there next to me that's her
lookin' like a dead fish
budget rooms and molting fur
not a story, not a wish
washing up an empty dish
still it all seems like a blur
bye-bye baby, all good times

storming like two years before
guess I'm makin' my traditions
still I'm crying out for more
finally finding my religion
wet enough I might go fishing
drying up I near the door
call it casting out a line

pressing pins in ancient maps
blue for maybe, red for yes
slowly filling all the gaps
no surprises, never guess,
never dream I'm not the best,
never miss the hours elapsed
hate the days, forget the time

I guess that I look older now
people smile but people pass
but I won't let them bring me down
peace of mind or piece of ass,
gotta live and make it last
gotta get it down somehow
pocket all the cents and dimes

and if another lecture hall
locks me in or tries to teach
more flawed ideas or battle calls
tell them that I can't be reached
tell them they've already leeched
my happiness, my wherewithal
they must be sick of all my sighin'

ah, come on now, everybody stop
I'm leaving soon, I've had enough
I've jumped the cliff, I've made the drop
don't think twice now, call the bluff -
yes it's painful, yes it's rough
but I'll be gone before the flop
so long guys, I'll be all right
