sometimes you’re so alone
damn sure your soul has gone
leaves you back with what you are
and what you are is so bizarre
life strips you off all your illusions
leaves only the skeleton
of your individual conclusions
the invention of solitude
is the day of your birth
a thing you may not realize
so i don’t want to dramatize
a thing you may not realize

honey don’t you know that life never gives in
all she gives is a dirty grin
honey don’t you know that life never gives in
all she gives is a dirty grin

sometimes you need a god
or at least a friendly smile
you need to have it
once in a while
the invention of solitude
is not a personal attitude
maybe it’s your creator’s point of view
but god is the only person you can’t sue

honey don’t you know that life never gives in
all she gives is a dirty grin
honey don’t you know that life never gives in
all she gives is a dirty grin

if you don’t understand don’t care (please don't you care)
there’s a lot that we do share (that we do share)
but i don’t wanna waste your time
so you maybe sit back and enjoy the rhyme

the invention of solitude
means the decisive moment
when you yourself when you yourself
are your worst opponent
when you yourself are your worst opponent

honey don’t you know that life never gives in
all she gives is a dirty grin
honey don’t you know that life never gives in
all she gives is a dirty grin
