The Dead Parade

lyrics

LATE TO BED
AND RISING EVEN LATER
AND LOSING PATIENCE
FOR POUROVER COFFEE

AND THE DRIVE-THRU GIRL
SOUNDED NICER THAN SHE WAS
BUT WHO THE HELL AM I
TO HAVE EXPECTATIONS?

LATE TO SLEEP
AND SLOWER TO AWAKE
A BEAR UNTIL I GET
MY POUROVER COFFEE
THERE’S A PARTY DOWNSTAIRS
AND I SAID THAT I’D APPEAR
BUT I’LL TAKE ANY EXCUSE I CAN
TO BACK OUT OF THERE

IT’S THE SAME OLD DAY
I GET TO WATCH THE SETTING SUNLIGHT
TURN TO GREY
IT’S THE DEAD PARADE
SO MANY MILLIONS SERVED UP
SOMETHING FROM THE GRAVE

WHEN I WAS YOUNG
IT WAS SELFISH TO DESIRE
IT STAYED IN MY HEAD
ALONG WITH THE WANTING
IS IT MUCH TOO PLAIN
DO I ACT IN VAIN
IS IT BECAUSE A MEETING WITH YOUR EYES
I CANNOT SUSTAIN

IT’S THE SAME OLD DAY
I GET TO WATCH THE SETTING SUNLIGHT
TURN TO GREY
IT’S THE DEAD PARADE
HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS SERVED UP
SOMETHING FROM THE GRAVE
