I could swim or I could stay inside
my protective shell and hide
oh I could die or I could stay inside
this shell alive

and in the background on the soundtrack to the movie that is my life right now

inhale
look around gaze through the battlefield
put myself to sleep counting bodies
on the windshield

exhale at sale
at sale let's sail
paying our dues and don't celebrate this new arrival
we're trying on survival and it's fitting so nice
we'll keep it
our days are better off choosing you
just one or two days at a time keeping pace
through mountains, planes, trees, and cityscrapes,
yet it's almost always the same place,
same faces with different names,
saturated in their underground,
jaded with feet nailed firmly down.

devirginized years ago,
now tired of sleeping around

how can we strip free your ego
and save you from yourself?

Listen, lend an ear to open hearts
or sell your soul to artist and repertoire
