"Mortimer's Ghost" as written by and Josh Joplin....
Mortimer's ghost
Graduates today
First in his class
And well on his way
The dry cleaning king of Baltimore's only kid
Thinks back on all the things he almost did

"I coulda wrecked the car
I could've broke the law
I could've fell love
With every girl I saw
But I didn't, and I missed my chance to fail
And if I tried right now, well, I'd probably go to jail"

Singin'
La la la la la la la
Look at me now
I've got it figured out

Life is a long conversation
And love is a call that never ends
Don't hang up the phone
You're not alone
You're with me, and I'm with you
And we're with friends

Mortimer's ghost
Calls me to confess
His job is a joke
His life is meaningless
"They tell you what to do and make you walk the plank
Freedom's just another word for
'You owe the bank'"

Singin'
La la la la la la la
Look at me now
I've got it figured out

Life is a long conversation
And love is a call that never ends
Don't hang up the phone
You're not alone
You're with me, and I'm with you
And we're with friends

Buckled up in shirts and ties
Waiting for the downsize
Decorate your cubicle
You can't go out, your schedule's full
Gotta get the kids at five
They're judging you by what you drive
They're judging you by what you drive
They're judging you by what you drive

Life is a long conversation
And love is a call that never ends
I've got it figured out
Life is a long conversation
And love is a call that never ends
I've got it figured out

La la la la la la la
Look at us now
La la la la la la la
Look at us now
Got it figured out

Life is a long conversation
And love is a call that never ends
I've got it figured out
Life is a long conversation
And love is a call that never ends
I've got it figured out
