Listen to your tunes
And the untruth in your voice
You oughta melt me
When you lie

There’s no reason why
And there’s no thong in the dye

And this standing is not so good
But I never really tried
And the earth revolves for nothing

So the tourists had to cry. Try
But can’t decide what put you on
That tricky ride since high school

Try, cry you can’t decide what put you on
That tricky ride since high school

Bring the beers the last parade
Has left the house
They’ll try and hurt you
When they lie
They’re timid like the damned
Only I know where I’ll land
And this standing is not so good
But I never really tried
And the earth revolves for nothing
So my cheerleaders had to

Cry, try but can’t decide what put you on
That tricky ride since high school

Cry, try you can’t decide what put you on
That tricky ride since high school

I’ll sink and go under it
I’ll rise and get over it
I’ll float on a log in the midstream
I found out what that fear was for

    General CommentI love this song. I love how he sings "Timid like the damned. Only I know where I'll land." Listening to the remastered version, I think the lyrics may be the following. The 'tourist' part doesn't sound right but I can't think of what other word it could be.

    Listen to your tunes
    And the untruth in your voice
    You ought to help me
    When you lie

    There’s no reason why
    And there’s no thumb in the dye

    And the standing’s not so good
    But I never really tried
    And the earth revolves for nothing

    So the tourists had to cry. Try
    But can’t decide what put you on
    That shaky ride since high school

    Try, cry, you can’t decide what put you on
    That shaky ride since high school

    Bring the beers the last parade
    Has left the house
    They try and hurt you
    When they lie
    Timid like the damned
    Only I know where I’ll land
    And the standing’s not so good
    But I never really tried
    And the earth revolves for nothing
    So the tourists had to cry

    Try, cry, you can’t decide what put you on
    That shaky ride since high school

    Cry, try, we can’t decide what put you on
    That shaky ride since high school

    I’ll sink and go under it
    I’ll rise and get over it
    Float on a log in the midstream
    I found out what that fear was for
