lyrics

You watch the world through your red spectacles
And contemplate things that you already know
Oh you’re staying up late watching old tv shows
And dream about cancer in blue light shadow

And you don’t know how to begin to settle your mind
But you’ll say that you’re doing just fine

'Cause your mind it wanders and your heart does the same
It’s a lonesome way of living but a life all the same
So you fix up your bike and you go your own way
You don’t know where you’re going but you know you can’t stay

Attribute your depression to your grandfather’s death
And sell his belongings not a single one left
But an old Cadillac and you decided to jet
And take up cosplaying as professor X

You don’t know how to begin to settle your mind
But you’ll say that you’re doing just fine

'Cause your mind it wanders and your heart does the same
It’s a lonesome way of living but a life all the same
So you fix up your car and you drive out of state
You don’t know where you’re going but you know you can’t stay

Oh the plains aren’t wide enough for the wanderer
He found a love but he never belonged to her
Oh the plains aren’t wide enough for the wanderer
The worlds not wide enough for the wanderer

'Cause your mind it wanders and your heart does the same
It’s a lonesome way of living but a life all the same
So you fix up your bike and you go your own way
You don’t know where you’re going but you know you can’t stay
