lyrics

Seen the girl with the smile on her face
Telling me to count my blessings like I count my age
She’d help herself, said she got nothing to lose
She fed me the line and I delivered the news

Though when I went home I could see nothing was new
Yellow grass around a white trim house like a zoo
And every day, I’d put a hole in the cage
She fed me the line and put me back in my place

Been having dreams where the girls line up side to side
Wearing signs saying “Everything Will Be Alright.”
And I don’t believe everything that I read
But free advice never looked so good to me

Yeah I been having twisted visions of a thing divine
Trapped inside another person waiting for a sign
A windowpane into a different machine
With the clean clean glass far as you can see

I’m thinking about the goddess in the suburbs
And all the things she’s gonna say
When she comes knocking at my door

Now, back in Boston, I was known as the Trusted Kid
Though no one ever seemed to know exactly what I did
Now I return to see a hole in the cage
She fed me the line and put me back in my place

I been practicin’ all different types of alchemy
Hoping one day to make one that might look just like me
Yeah, and the girl I see she’s smilin still
She feeds me the line 'cause I'm the one who will

I been drinkin all the . . . crystal cola
All the things I couldn’t say
When I came knocking at her door
