Here comes the sidewalk boss again, telling me I cant cave in. but im a study in back, a pat on the back, I look up and smile, a picture of dissatisfaction. He can only see as a junkie, though I might be straight, as an arrow hes busy shaking hands with my monkey, shaking hands with a monkey.
I go in my car, straight to the bar, when my sweetie pours the beer for the millions of fans, ignoring the band. Hes in my ear, wants me to live in denial. Says you’ve got to settle for something. Though it might not be really living, anything is better than nothing. Anything is better than nothing.No I cant actually make a move, it’ll take my place. Ill be coming after pride, just a total waste, look at your hands all …………………. Under the belt, pretending to feel, got to hope, got to empty time, oh you’ve got to fill it with something, I know what you can do, don’t you know anything is better than nothing. No I cant actually move, it’ll take my place, ill be going after pride, just a total waste, im here with my cub, a friend to look up, this is how I spend my time, lazying around. Head hanging down,. Stuck inside, my imagination. Busy making something from nothing, its ive hopes of crashing, anything is better than nothing, anything is better than nothing, anything is better than nothing.
