Turn the corner on twenty years
And find that you haven't found much out
In the past twenty years

I'm still scared - I won't hide my fear
I'm not 100% sure
That I'm even 80% here

But witticisms bordering on obnoxious
Will always make me smile

I tried to hide - what could I do?
Tangible life has tangibly
Forced me back into tangibility

Can't hide inside books and films
And the dialectics of philosophy
But, sad lyrics sung happily
Will always strike a chord

Because half the time I'm happily sad
And the rest of the time I just couldn't care


Oh no!
This is life, so grab your books and rulers and break them in half
Oh no!
This is my life and this is it, but I'd rather take a nap


All in all, I'm just along for the ride
But I'll stick around if we're going somewhere interesting
