I walked outside
it was dawn
there were flowers left on the side of the road
and it was cold
there was a breeze and a building
and at the time it was almost Spring;
I got a call from an old friend today
I said "I CAN'T FIND THE KEYS TO MY CAR.
I walked outside and I fell into a dream,
and I just wanted to scream
but I don't scream in my sleep anymore!"

I keep getting calls from an old friend these days;
he says "everything's evil! And nothing's perfect,
but everything deserves a second chance."
But I walk outside to find nothing but the same;
you say it's different now
you haven't changed.

Should've walked outside
when you tried
to convince every yuppie in the East 14th Street Whole Foods
that you were my husband
'cause you thought it sounded cool
it was dumb
my mind wandered;
I wanna take my man to the moon
to the mountains
to the hidden rooms
I wanna go everywhere,
but I keep getting calls from an old flame.

He says
"we're all soldiers! And we're all cars
fighting other cars
on the little highway roads
and everything is fixed
and the whole wide world is predetermined
and made up of
guns and newspapers
and toy painted guns that are illegal
and we're so fucking illegal
that we're probably totally legal
'cause everything is strange."

It's dawn;
there are flowers growing on the side of the road
and it's so fuckin cold
there's a breeze and a building
a few more weeks until it's Spring
let's take a walk.
