Hundreds Of Ways

What a thing to be a witness to the sunshine
What a dream to just be walking on the ground
What a time to live among the ash and remnants of our love
That came before and I’m still looking for that now

It took centuries to build these twisted cities
It took seconds to reduce them down to dust
And all the tour guide could say was take your pictures folks it’s late
And try your best please to remember what was done

Don’t look so forlorn
Don’t you look so scared
Don’t get so upset
This world was never fair

But there are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
There are hundreds of ways
Now you just find one

I used to think that time was of the essence
Now I just wish I could get some sleep
All this strange parade of sounds
The city makes when I lie down
Little explosions that set fire to my dreams

Sometimes I get mistaken for this actor
And I guess that I can see it from the side
Maybe no one really seems to be
The person that they mean to be
I hope I am forgotten when I die

Don’t contradict me
Don’t make me cross the line
If you feel threatened
It’s only because I might

But there are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
But there are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
Yes there are hundreds of ways
So you best find one

All my heroes they’re all talk
Running in circles
Some stop, watch, some chaos
Love was the message, full stop

We ramble on and on
We ramble on and on
Hey!

I stole all the rhinestones out of Carolina
Sold them out in Bakersfield for cash
Now the bandshell had a band
Sound like an arcade in Japan
Blew all my quarters trying to get that feeling back

Now any sucker can turn boredom into violence
A sociopath riding on a bus
And his irises are black from his novelty contacts
He looks around but he can’t see the rest of us

In my sunglasses
Don’t mind the blinding light
Yeah it’s getting dark, bro
But I've always loved the night

But there are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
There are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
There are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
There are hundreds of ways
To get through the day
There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ways
To get through the day
Just find one

Fast Friends


Righteousness is its own reward
Solitude is what I shoot for
What good is behind me now?
It doesn't count

Butterflies and the hangers on
Come by my house, see the lights on
They wanna have their say
At my front gate

Well I don't know what to tell you man
It has really been too long
Whatever I had to give away
Whatever I had to give away
Is gone

A broken heart is a natural death
But to never love, that is tragic
And the far worse of the two
I can assure you

It's never hard to make a fast friend
Someone to dance till the song ends
The trick is gettin' loose
Once they got you

Well I don't know what to tell you kid
Though it really is too bad
All that I tried to push away
All that I tried to push away
Came back

All that crowded loneliness made for a long day
All that crowded loneliness gave me a long face
Everywhere I go I think I went the wrong way
All that crowded loneliness made for a long day
