lyrics

Hey,
I woke up strange today with a song playing in my head.
It goes on and on and on, and round and round again.
Hey,
I’ve got this fuzzy pain and it’s right behind my eye.
It’s right inside my brain, it’s there but it’s ok.

Look at me, i’m already quarter of the age that i could ever be.
All my life i wait, the life you’d waste.

And i’ve got a friend, he plays the guitar and he plays that thing so well,
But he works at the Apple Store, for 7 an hour, he’s starting to wake up strange more and more,
And more and more, and more and more and more.

His girlfriend left a message on his answerphone.
She says it’s over ‘cause she’d rather be alone.

Look at him, he’s a shadow of the man he thought that he could have ever been.
All his life he waited patiently.

To settle down, and get a good job, but he’s starting to wake up strange.
No you don’t wear white socks, with your black shoes.
It’s simple, agreed fashion etiquette but he knows he knows he knows,
Yeah he knows he knows he knows.

They’re out to get me,
It’s all you ever say.
Still water run deep,
But not as deep in me.
What’s this the splinter of yourself that pains you now.

Look at you, you’re the last one of your kind to toe the line.
Where’s your fight, all my life i wait the life you waste.

And i’ve got a friend, he plays the guitar and he plays that thing so well,
But he works at the Apple Store, for 7 an hour, he’s starting to wake up strange.
No you don’t wear white socks, with your black shoes,
It’s simple, agreed fashion etiquette,
And it’s a bakery, it’s a barber shop, you can teach the guitar before your night shift starts.
And you go to bed, you wake up strange, and you’re doing the same things over and over again.
