Often stoned and stuck alone with
No one home or on the phone with
Year by year I quell the fear
By keeping near a flame to steer by

Can't even find what I'm after
But I'm not inclined to be your next disaster
Your never ending words to guide me
Aren't even close to the one's inside me

Every fool i went to school with
Every rule i played it cool with
Every lie I had to pay for
Every night I lost a day for

Every day i slipped away from
Every way I tried to play some
Even then it's just the ending
In the end it's all pretending

Up and run and put a smile on
You blink and put another mile on
This gorgeous view here, have you looked sir?
It's time to go, this room is booked sir

Often stoned and stuck alone
With no one home or on the phone with
Your never ending words to guide me
Aren't even close to the one's inside me

Every fool i went to school with
Every rule i played it cool with
Every time I got a dime for
Every rhyme I had to climb for

Every day i slipped away from
Every way I tried to play some
All the signals I was sending
In the end it's all pretending

All pretending, it's all pretending
