what i didn't do yesterday
is the same thing i won't do today
i would call your attention to it
if i knew what news it would betray

i don't want to be fullgrown
i don't want to be fullgrown

it's not a battle cry
or anything sly
it's just the only alibi i own
i always miss birthdays
i'm always empty handed
i guess by now seems like i plan it that way

it's tough to get up on the downstroke
when you can't hear the beat
it's awful tough to be a traveling man
when instead of a van
you've only got your two tired feet
and all along in my head
i'm in over my head

i look everywhere else but myself
the minute things start to go wrong
i cast out my nets
full of holes for my regrets
but they come to me ten thousand strong

i don't want to be fullgrown
i don't want to be fullgrown
it's not anything new
but that doesn't make it any less true
and it's something you knew all along

you could always just lay low
wait for things to improve
but if you never get your shit together
then you better believe
you'll never find the right groove
and all along in my head
i'm in over my head

all these different places
looking for a different scene
but it's the same old routine
on and on and on we go through our paces
maybe that's all that's left to me
but i don't think you should look at it that way
