lyrics

I was sittin' on the steps
of the corner deli smokin' cigarettes
Damn good God I gotta quit
The owner lets me sit there
and just watch the cars
drawing in my little book
Took a while to get the respect

Why the hells my finger hurt
I guess I've been pointing out
too many things that don't make sense
All the same I gotta go
pack my bags and then I rolled
Went down to the liquor store
to do what I do best

I got home and I got stoned
then I watched a movie
Starring everything I ever thought
Oh I'm starin' at the wall
thought it was a TV screen
nothing's ever what it seems
especially when you're stressed

You were drawing pictures of
all the people that we'd seen that day
and then I called you out
you swore he wore glasses
and I disagreed
then you started kissin' me
just to try and get me to shut my mouth

I was sittin' on the roof
of my 1992
station wagon thought of you
as I stare down at my shoes
I thought if I thought hard enough
you would feel me thinkin'
and somehow get me to chill out

Remember you were mad at me
standin' near that apple tree
on that little shitty farm
Damn that was so long ago
Callin' random payphones
just to see if we could get ahold
of anyone

Then we saw that baby bird
sleeping peacefully inside the meadow
we would hang around
Damn they ate him bones and all
That's just life you said to me
I said I guess so
and went on with my day again

I got home and I got stoned
then I watched a movie
Starring everything I ever thought
Oh I'm starin' at the wall
thought it was a TV screen
nothing's ever what it seems
especially when you're stressed
