I had this dream last night and it was perfect
It was everything I wanted my life to be
So when I opened my eyes to this bright sunlight
I realized some things weren't the way that they should be

I put my feet into my shoes, which are old and dusty and
I don't remember when they were ever clean
I ran around my town asking people for my purpose
And none of their answers seemed to fit alright

Come keep me at bay
Cos the world's spitting us all out one by one
And we've all sinned enough to know that we're gonna die someday

I've tried to be myself but I'm running low on health
To fight all those who tell me to be a certain way
Though I don't cry out my eyes every time that a stitch undoes itself
Cos nobody's gonna save you when can save yourself, baby

Even at a quarter after noon mothers are singing their babies
Sugar sick sweet lullabies that I know all too well
Haven't you ever noticed the way that their voices crack
When the child forgets the words and the tune stays with them alone?

Come keep me at bay
Cos the world's spitting us all out one by one
And we've all sinned enough to know that we're gonna die someday
