Preface: painless
You looked so pretty in that long, tall dress
Pistol for a princess
Approaching Portland, senses pointed west

You can never really arrive
One woman, one man
Such plans catch as catch can
One-off girl, one track boy
One face to ransack Troy
You can never really arrive

Red eye
Throw dice
It's hard to know when you can't live life twice
Turned on and on
On and on and on
Remember when you had the whole world won

But you can never really arrive
You can never really arrive

    Preface: Painless
    You looked so pretty in that long, tall dress
    Pistol for a princess
    Approaching Portland, senses pointed West

    You can never really arrive

    One woman, one man
    Such plans catch as catch can
    One-off girl, one-track boy
    One face to ransack Troy.

    You can never really arrive
    You can never really arrive

    Red eye, throw dice
    It's hard to know when you can't live life twice
    Turned on and on, and on and on and on
    Remember when you had the whole world won?

    But you can never really arrive
    You can never really arrive
    You can never really arrive
    You can never really arrive
    You can never really arrive
