lyrics

Ask this man what happens
when all is said and done
he'll say to you as always
there's nothin' new under the sun

I dreamed of love by the Caspian sea
I fled every soul who believed in me
I found myself a weepin' willow tree
and remain in darkness still

ooh ooh ah ah ooh ah
and you say it ain't right, no
ooh ooh ah ah ooh ah
but I say it's all right
it's just all right

The lights shine on and the clock ticks
I learned all the rules
I tried everything they preach
but I forgot my name
when I heard her heartbeat
and held a blade in between my fingertips

I don't know how many words I spoke
I've lost count of all the masks I broke
the only place that calls me home
is where I remain in darkness still

ooh ooh ah ah ooh ah
and you say it ain't right, no
ooh ooh ah ah ooh ah
but I say it's all right
it's just all right

Now, go away
it's all been said and done
you remind me of myself
and you're someone else's son

and sometimes the world just smells like piss
and on those days all I can say is this
better cry your way through the night
or remain in darkness still
