'Cause it's easier to lose
Never try at all and pay those dues
Stay alone, stay broke, stay safe at home
'Cause a crush in every town doesn't add up to true love
'Cause true love is tried and true love is tried but don't try it too much

'Cause it's easier to lose
'Cause it's easier to lose

Wake up in a new town
Sow my seeds so it don't grow too tall
The roots won't grow too far down
Hoping for a strong wind
Something to blow my dandelion seeds
To somewhere else

I think I'll fill my gut tonight with something brown and painful
Smoke my cigarretes until they burn my lips
Until the filter just gets in the way of enjoyment
I said I never wanted to spend another winter in the cold
So I picked up and left you
You know as I do that absence makes the heart grow suspicious
There's something to be said about having an argument
And convincing myself I'm right, well, it happens all the time
And all the bad feelings subside in just a couple pours and sips
I could snap like a stressed out string and pick up the dirt like it's such a simple thing
Such a simple thing
Contacts and contracts personally prescribing medicine
Drink tickets and free meals of fake deals
Hitchhikers and transluscent mountain floors
Cold air, warm beers, fat wallets to skinny pockets
I don't even know where I am
I don't even know where I am
Somewhere on the west coast and this road is as long as my longing to be home
Free as hell out here and something free is always nice
But I'm a handout for the kids and it makes me feel cheap
And they'll take me, they'll take me without thinking twice
I'll be grateful for some sleep

'Cause it's easier to lose
'Cause it's easier to lose

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "hitchhikers and transients and mouth whores" not "Hitchhikers and transluscent mountain floors"

    i totally memorized this monologue or whatever you want to call it. I love paper mache
