lyrics

neon fire set your future bright as a child
and you did fine, just repeating lies to deny them

now the red carrot’s dangling
but you’re resting your legs

and we all try with confusing might to defy them
and though we try, when it comes the time, we define them.

and the comforts are comforting
so you’re resting your head
still the red carpet’s beckoning,
so you’re straightening your dress.

the weary eyes of a greedy child would decide all, despite all
and so you try, with your fingers crossed, to excite them.

and the others went joyfully
while you choked on your dread
and the old horn sang reveille
while you clung to your bed

and right there beside you,
each You you feared you’d become.
and each was prepared to define you
if lies should prove more fun

no flash bulbs to blind you or fight through or frighten your young,
no burnt lime to light you in ripe youth, no weeping praises sung

and now you’re tired in a modest tie as you file and file
a look of fright in your tired eyes as they lie on the tile

and the wall clock is deafening
but it’s all in your head
