What does it mean to wake out of a dream
And be wearing some else's shorts?
I've been around the block, at least on my bike
I was prepared for the news but not for a full scale war
I found me an answer, in a grocery store
I found me an answer in the form of an old man with
A cardigan on, this guy's got thirty years on me but
He stops and smiles just to say, "Hello, didn't I see you on tv?"

Must've been the same thing
Must've been the same thing
Must've been the same thing
Charlie brown went through

I'm in a comic store
Lookin' for some mistakenly priced comic I could make a fortune on
In walks the Fantastic Four
I say, "Don't go that last issue was cool"

Must've been the same thing
Must've been the same thing
Must've been the same
Same thing

These things all end
Who asked you anyway?
You'll have to bend
Who asked you anyway?

I'm in a thunderstorm
Staying out from under trees never holding golf clubs
But still seem to be getting struck by lightning
Must be something in my veins
My weathered veins

Must've been the same thing
Must've been the same thing
Must've been the same thing

Must've been the same thing (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been the same thing (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been the same thing (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been the same thing (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been the same thing (it must've been the same thing)
It must've been the same thing (must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)
Must've been (it must've been the same thing)

    Song FactThe original liner notes to "Born on a Pirate Ship" have the lyrics as "not for the Third World War," contrary to how Ed sings it on the album. (Superstition, perhaps?)
